The best way to get to Chino Roces formerly known as Pasong Tamo from Sampaloc, if you're not in a hurry, is to go to Quiapo, particularly near Quiapo Church, where an air-conditioned bus bound to Ayala Avenue Makati stands for about 30 minutes to wait for passengers. This bus takes President Osmena Highway and Gil Puyat Avenue formerly Buendia then it crosses Chino Roces Avenue on the way to Ayala Avenue.
Chino Roces Avenue is a long road. Approximately, it runs 5.7 kilometers from its northern tip in J.P. Rizal Street down to its southern tip in Lawton Avenue.
It's important that you have the knowledge as to what part of Chino Roces you're going to. For fast travel, you can get to Quiapo Church, then walk along Carriedo Street towards LRT-1 Carriedo Station. Ride a Baclaran bound train and alight at Gil Puyat Avenue Station where you ride a jeepney with "PRC" sign along Gil Puyat. PRC here means Philippine Racing Club. This jeep takes Gil Puyat and passes through Chino Roces northern part from De La Rosa Street up to J.P. Rizal Street on its way to PRC. If your destination is located to the south of Chino Roces Avenue, just get off the jeepney at the corner of De La Rosa Street or Gil Puyat Avenue. Ride another jeepney, this time with "Mantrade" sign. This jeepney goes southward, towards EDSA where its terminal is located.
If you're going to PDIC or Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation, ride the jeepney with "Mantrade" sign. If your destination is Makati Coliseum, ride the jeepney with "PRC" sign.
Familiarizing yourself with our city streets, saves you time in the future.
