Direction Bytes: From J.P. Rizal To OWWA

  • The current situation in Libya sends many relatives of OFWs to Overseas Workers' Welfare Administration or OWWA to meet up with their love ones who arrive in Manila amidst the unrest in the country where they had worked for years.

    From any point along J.P. Rizal, Ride a jeepney that will pass by PRC. Most of these jeepneys are going to Taft from Guadalupe and bear "Paco Taft" sign. Ride one of these jeepneys and ask the driver to drop you off at PRC. This is not the PRC in Morayta. PRC here means Philippine Racing Club which is near J.P. Rizal corner Chino Roces formerly known as Pasong Tamo.

    Once you get off at the unloading zone for PRC, you will not actually see the PRC. You need to walk towards it. Anyway, there are two terminals of jeepneys near where you get off. One is for "Mantrade" bound jeepneys and the other is for "LRT Taft" jeepneys.

    Ride a jeepney with "LRT Taft" sign either at the terminal or walk towards the corner of J.P. Rizal and Chino Roces formerly Pasong Tamo and wait for a jeepney to arrive there.

    This jeepney takes Chino Roces and turns right onto Gil Puyat where if goes all the way to Roxas Boulevard but few meters from Roxas Boulevard it makes a U-Turn to get back to PRC.

    After the jeep makes a U-Turn near Roxas Boulevard it will pass by Harrison Street again where the OWWA's location is very near and walking distance.

    Get off in that corner of Harrison and Gil Puyat. OWWA Center is located along F.B. Harrison Street next to Metrobank, which is located at the corner of Gil Puyat and Harrison. to your left if your facing Harrison Street. So, once you see the Metrobank, go to the next building and you will see right there the big building of OWWA Center.

    Note: There are times some jeepney drivers are cutting trips and make U-Turn even before reaching Harrison Street. So, I advice you to ask the driver if he will pass Harrison. Better yet ask him to drop you at OWWA itself.
