  • You can go to Quiapo via LRT-2 train if you live in Marikina, Pasig, Antipolo, Project 4, Cubao, Gateway Mall, Araneta Center, San Juan, Santa Mesa, SM Centerpoint, Kalentong , Mandaluyong, Sampaloc and nearby vicinities. Today, I'm going to discuss how to get to Quiapo as well as Quiapo Church from LRT-2.

    From your location, ride a jeep, a bus, a taxi or tricycle to the nearest LRT-2 station. Here are the stations of LRT-2 from Pasig: Santolan, Katipunan, Araneta Center Cubao, Betty Go Belmonte, Gilmore, J. Ruiz, V. Mapa, Pureza, Legarda and Recto. Depending on your location, get to one of these stations, the nearest one to you.

    Get a ticket up to Recto Station and get off right there. After you get off at Recto Station, get out of the station via Exit near Isetann Mall, it's the colored orange big mall that you see to the left of the elevated track of the train and can be seen even when the train is approaching Recto Station.

    Once in the ground, you will notice a road between Isetann and LRT-2 Recto Station building. This road is perpendicularly intersecting Recto Avenue. This is Evangelista Street. Get into this street and walk onwards until you cross an intersection called Raon Street also known as Gonzalo Puyat. You're now in Quiapo. Continuously walk and after crossing another street, Paterno Street, up ahead you will see statues of Santo Ninos and Saints being sold. Next to these sidewalk stores is the Quiapo Church. This route is the most practical way to get to Quiapo from LRT-2 even if it takes approximately .5 km to walk from LRT-2 Station up to Quiapo Church.

    If you don't want to walk, you can ride a jeepney that passes by Recto from Divisoria with "Quiapo" sign but it will take you a long wait because there are only a few of them that plies this route.
