Filled under: ,


Marikina City is now very accessible.  You may ride a jeep, an FX or the train to get here.  This post was created to help those people who are trying to find their ways to get to our city.  We hope that you will find this post helpful and informative.

If you're coming from NLEX: Just ride a bus bound to either Baclaran, Ayala, or Alabang. Look for buses with "Cubao-Ibabaw" signage. Tell the driver to drop you off to Aurora Cubao. You can also ride the MRT train. Just get a pass for Cubao/Araneta Station and ask where Aurora Blvd. is. Along Aurora Blvd. look for FX or jeeps going to either Calumpang, Parang Fortune, or SSS Village. They will all take you to Marikina landmarks Riverbank Mall, Riverpark, Marikina City proper, Sports Complex and the Marquinton Mall aka Blue Wave Mall.

You can also ride either a Montalban jeep or San Mateo bus, but they will not pass by Riverbank Mall and Riverpark. They will both take the Marcos Highway-A Tuazon route, leading you to other landmark like SM Marikina and Sta. Lucia East Mall. They will also take you to Marquiton Mall.

From Cubao, sakay ka ng biyaheng Parang Fortune na Lamuan. Sabihin mo sa driver, ibaba ka sa kanto ng Homeowners, bago dumating sa pasukan ng papuntang Malanday. Magtanong ka lang sa pinagbabaan mo saan ang Eustaquio St.

Kung punta po ako mama chits resto, may sarling car and coming from cordillera st quezon city......ano po best route to use? Thanks

Take Aurora Blvd to get to Marikina. Then take Bonifacio Avenue in Marikina. After you cross the bridge of Marikina, turn right. You will see Mama Chits on the left side of the JP Rizal right after passing OLA Church.

Just take any bus going to Cubao, Quezon City. Then from there, you may ride several jeeps going to Calumpang, SSS Village, Parang/Fortune or San Mateo/Montalban. They all lead to Marikina City

Thanks! But wala po bang FX na straight to and from Marikina?

Marikeno said...

That, I am not sure. You may trying asking around Star Mall or Megamall, ask for shuttle services going straight to Marikina.

May I ask kung pano pumunta s panorama st. sss village from manila ng commute lang.thanks

Marikeno said...

You may ride the LRT 2 train to Katipunan Station. Right outside the station,you will SSS Village jeepneys. Ask the driver to advise you where to get off.

paano po pumunta sa sta monica hospital galing sa lrt katipunan? anong jeep po sasakyan?

Marikeno said...

Sta Monica Hospital is along A. Bonifacio Avenue. So from LRT Katipunan, you can simply ride either an SSS Village, Parang or Calumpang jeep. I suggest you take the Calumpang jeep as they are mostly not full. Ask the driver to drop you off infront of the hospital in Tanong.

Hi! Pano po ba mag commute papuntang Marikina Valley Medical Center, malapit daw siya sa Marquinton Bluewave Mall? Sa Cubao ako manggagaling. Thanks! :)

Marikeno said...

The best way is to ride a Montalban jeep. It goes straight to Marquinton. Some SSS Village jeeps goes to Marquinton, but not all of them.

good day. tanong ko lang kung anong pedeng sakyan papuntang Our Lady of Abandoned. I'm from Pasig. Thanks.

Marikeno said...

Just ride any Marikina jeep from Pasig. You can take the Marikina-Palengke, Marikina-Stoplight and Marikina-Tulay jeeps. Just tell the driver to drop you off to OLA in San Roque.
