How to commute to Eastwood City?
Coming from Rosario, Pasig
If you are coming from the Rosario, Pasig or Cainta, Rizal areas, you will find jeepneys along Ortigas Avenue extension with signage “Cubao” only or both “Eastwood” and “Cubao”. Board any of these jeepneys as they will definitely turn right to E. Rodriguez Avenue (a.k.a. C-5) and will pass in front of Eastwood City.
Coming from Cubao
If you are coming from northern part of Metro Manila, the nearest way is through Cubao. Coming from EDSA, you need to walk over 500 meters to General Romulo Avenue. To lessen the effect of the heat of the sun and the pollution of being outside, I would suggest you enter Farmer’s Plaza, walk through the bridgeway towards Smart Araneta Coliseum, head towards the entrance to Gateway Mall, and exit the Gateway Mall’s ground floor. At this point, you really need to be outside. Walk along the pedestrian lane on the side of General Roxas Avenue on the side of Shopwise Cubao. The second intersection from here is the General Romulo Ave. from where jeepneys with singage “Eastwood” and/or “Rosario” can be found. It is the same jeepneys that I mentioned in the earlier paragraph but this time, they are on their way back to Rosario, Pasig.
If it’s more convenient for you to come to Cubao through LRT Line 2, off-board the train at Araneta-Cubao station, enter the Gateway Mall, and exit through its ground floor in front of Shopwise Cubao. You may ask the guards or Information booth on how to get to Shopwise. From here, it’s the same as described in the previous paragraph.
If you are traversing EDSA first, aside from Cubao, your other option to go to Eastwood is through Robinson’s Galleria at the corner of EDSA and Ortigas. Here, you can find a jeepney terminal that is heading to Rosario, Pasig or you may just wait for the green bus G Liner. Upon boarding the vehicle or when it starts running tell the driver (if jeepney) or the conductor (if bus) to drop you at I.P.I. I.P.I. is some sort of industrial compound at the corner of Ortigas and E. Rodriguez Avenue. There is a flyover here but the jeepney and the bus usually pass below the flyover. From here, you can transfer to the jeepneys on the other side of Ortigas Ave. Check if the jeepney has either “Eastwood” or “Cubao” signage before boarding. These are the same jeepneys that I mentioned in the first paragraph; those that are coming from Cainta area and heading to Cubao.
