  • OWWA Center or Overseas Workers Welfare Administration building is located along F.B. Harrison Street near corner Gil Puyat Avenue formerly Buendia in Pasay City.

    This is how you commute to OWWA from different parts of Metro Manila.

    Route #1

    From Alabang, Sucat, Bicutan, Metropolis Starmall, Filinvest City, Festival Mall, Pacita and areas near these locations.

    Ride a jeepney or FX with "Pasay Rotonda MOA" sign or any jeep and FX going to Mall of Asia or MOA that will pass through either skyway or South Superhighway and then EDSA. Ask driver to drop you off at the corner of EDSA and F.B. Harrison Street.

    At the corner of Harrison and EDSA, ride a jeepney with any of these signs: "Harrison Plaza", "Quiapo Mabini", "Monumento Mabini", "Cubao Mabini", "Divisoria Mabini", etc.

    There's only one intersection with traffic lights this jeep passes through before Gil Puyat or Buendia. That intersection is Arnaiz formerly Libertad Street. Ask the driver to drop you off at OWWA.

    If the driver doesn't know OWWA's location, ask him to drop you off at the corner of Gil Puyat and Harrison. Once you're in the corner of Gil Puyat and Harrison, you will see Metrobank building to the right corner. Walk back along Harrison and go towards the building next to Metrobank. You will find there the big building of OWWA.

    Route #2

    From Southern Tagalog provinces of Batangas, Laguna and Quezon. In going to Manila, ride a bus with its terminal located near the intersections of Taft Avenue and Gil Puyat formerly Buendia. There's about five terminals of buses that plies Southern Tagalog provinces in this area like JAC Bus Liner, JAM, etc.

    Along Gil Puyat Avenue formerly Buendia, in front of JAC Bus Terminal, ride a jeepney with "Evangelista" or "PRC Pasong Tamo C. Roces" sign.

    Get off at the corner of Harrison Street and Gil Puyat.

    At this point, you can now see the big building of OWWA Center in the opposite side of Gil Puyat. This is OWWA Center building seen from where you get off:


    Cross Gil Puyat Avenue towards the opposite side.

    You will see Metrobank at the corner of Harrison and Gil Puyat. Next to Metrobank, at the back and along Harrison Street is the 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.

    Route #3

    From Cavite, Tagaytay, Bacoor, Imus, Las Pinas, SM Southmall, Alabang-Zapote Road and areas near these locations. First you need to go to Baclaran. Ride a jeep or bus going to Baclaran.

Don't ride a bus if it doesn't have that sign as it will not pass through the location of OWWA.

    This bus take Roxas Boulevard, passing through EDSA Roxas Boulevard flyover and then it turns right onto Gil Puyat. After it turns right on Gil Puyat get off at the next intersection which is F.B. Harrison Street.
