This post will help you how to get to PCSO and PICC both by commuting and driving. The best way to reach PICC if you want to commute is by LRT and MRT, then ride a shuttle, a jeepney version that plies the route going to CCP Complex.
Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office or PCSO is located inside PICC or Philippine International Convention Center. PICC is inside the sprawling complex of CCP in Pasay City. You can get to PICC and PCSO if you know how to get to CCP Complex. First, you need to view the post on how to get to CCP Complex that will tell you directions from different parts of Metro Manila by car and public mode of transportation. Here's what you do. In the Search Direction Here box that you see above right sidebar of this blog, enter "how to get to ccp complex" then hit "Search" button or just press Enter on your keyboard. Second, click "Directions On Web: How To Get To CCP or Cultural Center of the..." link from the list of the results. Third, browse the content until you see the part that discusses directions to CCP Complex from your location or area that near you.
Once you knew the directions going to CCP Complex either by car or by commuting, it becomes easy how to get to PICC and PCSO. By car, if you enter CCP Complex from south and you take either President Diosdado Macapagal or Gil Puyat Avenue, then all you need to do is turn left on Vicente Sotto from Magdalena Jalandoni Street. Stay to the middle of Vicente Sotto until you see the elongated PICC building to the left. Make a U-turn to get to the driveway passing by the main entrance of PICC. There's enough parking space at the surroundings of PICC, but it would be better if you ask Security Officers as to where to park your car. As far as I know, parking is no longer free anywhere in the CCP Complex, unlike before. So you ought to know how much is the rate.
If you enter CCP Complex via Roxas Boulevard, Pablo Ocampo Street and Pedro Bukaneg, then just stay to the middle of Pedro Bukaneg and drive all the way up to the tip of the road where the Folk Arts Theater is located. Turn left on that intersection and PICC comes into view, located along Vicente Sotto Street. Turn right onto Vicente Sotto Street and make a U-Turn to get to the driveway passing by the main entrance of PICC.
If you're commuting, follow all the directions given in "How to get to CCP Complex" including MRT and LRT routes from your location. Just tell the driver of the orange shuttle you're boarding from Pablo Ocampo Street that you're going to PICC. Ask him to drop you off the site of the building.
