    5. Just ride a jeep with "Munoz" sign. At the corner of EDSA and Roosevelt, Walter Mart is next to Munoz Market. You can also ride jeep with "Del Monte Proj 8". It will cross EDSA. Get off the jeep before it crosses. There are jeepneys right there at Pier 2. If you can't find jeepney with these sign, ride to Quiapo and take the jeep over there. "Munoz" jeep also passes through Sta Cruz Carriedo area so you can first ride a jeep to Sta Cruz.

    6. You can easily go to SM North EDSA by riding a jeep with "Proj 6 West SM North EDSA" signs on both sides of the jeep and "Proj 6" sign in its front. You can take this jeep right at Pier 2, along the main road where jeepneys pass through. If it's your first time to go to SM North EDSA, the landmark is when you see the LRT elevated track running above the wide EDSA. There are pedestrian overpasses and West Ave ends there while North Ave continues it on opposite side of EDSA. Lots of passengers alight there. Climb the pedestrian overpass and you will surely see the big signage of SM City North EDSA. You will not get lost if you go to SM North EDSA by following this guide even without driver's assistance.
