    BY TRAIN

    LRT Line 1 South Bound - Get off Abad Santos Station. Take jeepney to Divisoria on Abad Santos Avenue, get off at Recto, walk up to Soler, turn right on Soler, walk straight up to 168 Mall passing by 999 Mall

    LRT Line 1 North Bound - Get off Abad Santos Station. Take jeepney to Divisoria on Abad Santos Avenue, get off at Recto, walk up to Soler Street, turn right on Soler to get to 168 Mall.

    LRT Line 2 Marikina to Recto - After alighting from the train on Recto Station, take jeepney bound to Divisoria, get off at Abad Santos Avenue, walk up to Soler Street, turn right on Soler to get to 168 Mall bypassing 999 Mall.

    Note: It is not advisable for LRT 1 passengers to use Doroteo Jose Station as their first stop on the way to 999 Mall especially during Holiday Season. Traffic along Recto Avenue during this season is heavy, you might stuck up for long hours before you reach Abad Santos Avenue. So the best route is from Jose Abad Santos Avenue Station.


    BY JEEPNEY

    Divisoria bound jeepneys from Baclaran ply the route 24/7 via Juan Luna. During Christmas Season Juan Luna is non passable for public and private vehicle. Walk towards Recto. Turn right on Sta. Elena Street to get to old 168 Mall. Once inside just explore until you see Phase 5 of 168 Mall

    Divisoria bound jeepneys from Monumento and Navotas ply the route daily via Abad Santos Avenue. Once in Recto, just walk your way to 168 Shopping Mall, it's very near to the corner of Recto and Jose Abad Santos Avenue, just turn right on Soler Street, continue walking, bypass 999 Mall until 168 Mall comes into view. Phase 5 of 168 Mall is up ahead, taller than the old 168 Mall, standing out from the distance.

    Divisoria bound jeepneys from Marikina, Cubao and Sta Mesa Area, ply the route 24/7 via Aurora Avenue via Magsaysay Blvd. Once near Abad Santos, you can walk your way to 168 Shopping Mall or take one of many pedi cabs in the area.

    Traffic in the Area

    For route #1, traffic along Jose Abad Santos is moderate. Bottelneck builds upon approaching the intersection of Jose Abad Santos and Recto Avenue, but still manageable. This is the less congested road among the five routes given here. However, because of holiday season, always expect the worse in terms of traffic. It is advisable to plan your Christmas Shopping early in the morning.

    For route #2, this is the most simple route but the most congested, too. Because of the Christmas Season, bottleneck builds up already right after crossing Tomas Mapua, and it's still a long way to go before you reach Masangkay Street. Remember, Recto Avenue is the major road for passenger jeepneys coming to Divisoria from Marikina, Cubao, Sta Mesa, Pasig and even Quiapo. So if you can get around the area, you might want to take route #3 by turning right onto Oroquieta Street. Oroquieta Street is the street before Avenida and it is where Philippine Rabbit buses from province pass through to get to their terminal. On Oroquieta Street, just go straight ahead then turn left on Fugoso Street and follow route #3 direction. Warning: there's no left turn on Tomas Mapua Street from Recto Avenue. Avoid the inconvenience brought by MMDA Traffic Enforcer's apprehension. Drive smart.

    For route #3, you might be discourage on turning right to Soler but don't worry. The bottleneck you might encounter is momentarily. The traffic is caused by vehicles turning right onto the next street of San Bernardo. After San Bernardo Street, traffic is manageable up to Reina Regente. Nevertheless, because of the holiday season, there are some delay in traffic movement but MMDA Traffic Enforcers are there to manage the traffic so don't be agitated when you stop from time to time. I saw how they manage the traffic and it was excellent. After 10 minute wait, you will be driving along Soler without stopping up to Reina Regente. To avoid traffic, all along, plan your Christmas Shopping ahead of time and schedule it early in the morning.

    For route #4, bottleneck builds up heavily on Reina Regente upon approaching Felipe Street. Because of holiday season. please expect worse traffic situation even before you reach Reina Regente. To make sure you arrive without encountering so much traffic, plan your Christmas Shopping early in the morning.

    For route #5, Evangelista Street is teeming with lots of people and sidewalk vendors, and many car drivers park their vehicles along Evangelista to buy some items. So, expect slow movement. Traffic along Soler Street is in Traffic For route #3. To avoid traffic, always plan your Christmas Shopping early in the morning.
