ONE AYALA Terminal – Transport Guide with Routes & Schedules

When you hear the word “Makati,” the image that often comes to mind is that of towering skyscrapers and busy streets. Countless companies, including both local and multi-national corporations, have offices all over the city, with most of them being located in high rise buildings along Ayala Avenue. It’s called the Makati Central Business District for a reason!

There are also multiple shopping malls and entertainment areas around the city. Makati is probably one of, if not the, most highly populated area in Metro Manila during the day since locals and tourists alike go to the city for work, business, or leisure.

Because of this, Makati is accessible by almost every transportation option available in the metro. Whether you are coming from within Metro Manila or its nearby provinces, you can travel to and from Makati by bus, train, van, jeepney, or a combination of any of these options. Commuting from Makati is made a tad bit convenient by One Ayala, a transport hub that was opened in 2022 that now serves as a stop and terminal for different types of public utility vehicles.
