  • Official Address of PRC or Professional Regulation Commission is P. Paredes., Cor. Morayta St., Sampaloc, Manila. PRC website is prc.gov.ph. If you want to get PRC renewal form, you might need to check their website first. This post is PRC commuters guide. The only familiar street in PRC address is Morayta. Officially, Morayta is now Nicanor Reyes Street. But the exact location of PRC is only approximately 50 meters from Espana Boulevard, the main thoroughfare in Manila where most of public buses and jeepneys from far distant locations in Metro Manila pass through.

    The nearest LRT-1 Station to PRC is Doroteo Jose Station. The nearest LRT-2 Station is Recto, the last station. Quick tip: If your point of origin is along the route of LRT-2, e.g. Santolan, Araneta Center Cubao, Gilmore, V. Mapa and all other stations in between, all you need to do is alight at Recto Station, then ride a jeepney with any of these signs: "Morayta", "Gastambide" or "PRC". Read the details in Route #4 below.





    Here's how to commute to PRC from different parts of Metro Manila:

    Route #1

    From Alabang, Pacita, Metropolis Starmall, Filinvest City, Festival Mall, Sucat, Bicutan, nearby areas, and Southern Tagalog provinces of Batangas, Laguna and Quezon. Ride a bus or FX with "Lawton" or "Santa Cruz" sign. Get off at Lawton.

    In Lawton, ride a jeep with any of these signs: "Quiapo Espana", "Cubao Espana", "Project 6", "Project 2-3" and "Fairview". You can ride a jeepney going to these routes along the road that borders Metropolitan Theater or the road near to Park and Ride Lawton.

    Ask the driver to drop you off at Morayta now known as Nicaror Reyes. Nicanor Reyes aka Morayta is the first junction with traffic lights after the jeepney passes through Quezon Avenue Lerma Underpass.

    Photos immediately below are taken from Nicanor Reyes formerly Morayta corner Lerma towards the opposite side. Lerma is the road before Espana Boulevard, where you'd get off. These are what you're going to see before you get to PRC:


    Landmarks here are: Chowking, Mang Inasal and Greenwich Pizza. See the map below. The first red placemark is where you get off. From there, follow the red line and walk on Morayta which is now Nicanor Reyes Street. Turn left immediately on the street that borders Greenwich Pizza. That street is P. Paredes Street. As you can see in the map, PRC is to the left of Paredes, just a few meters from the corner of Morayta and Paredes.

    Tip: You're using mobile. Tap the map and drag it downward to see the first placemark or pin (red.) Pinch the map 2 to 4 times until you can see LRT Recto. At that zoom level you'll get an idea about the location. Drag the map anywhere you want. You can zoom in again by 'pinch-out' gesture (on the map.)



    Route #2

    From Cavite, Tagaytay, Bacoor, Dasmarinas, Imus, Emilio Aguinaldo Highway, Las Pinas, SM Southmall, Alabang Zapote Road and areas near to these locations. Ride a bus or FX going to Lawton or Santa Cruz Manila.

    Get off at Lawton and follow the direction given in Route #1.

    Route #3

    From Pasay, Paranaque, Baclaran, Pasay Rotonda, Libertad, Gil Puyat or Buendia and nearby areas. Ride a train going to Monumento/Roosevelt in any LRT-1 station near to you. Depending on your location in these areas, you can go to any of these stations: Baclaran Station, EDSA Station, Libertad Station, Gil Puyat Station and Vito Cruz Station.

    Get off at U.N. Avenue Station.

    Ride a jeepney with any of these signs: "Quiapo Espana", "Cubao Espana", "Project 6", "Project 2-3" and "Fairview". You can ride a jeepney going to these routes along Taft Avenue near corner U.N. Avenue just after you descend from U.N. Station.

    Ask the driver to drop you off at Morayta now known as Nicanor Reyes. Nicanor Reyes aka Morayta is the first junction with traffic lights after the jeepney passes through Quezon Avenue Lerma Underpass.

    Please see photos at Route #1.

    Landmarks here are: Chowking, Mang Inasal and Greenwich Pizza. See the map below. The first red placemark is where you get off. From there, follow the red line and walk on Morayta which is now Nicanor Reyes Street. Turn left immediately on the street that borders Greenwich Pizza. That street is P. Paredes Street. As you can see in the map, PRC is to the left of Paredes, just a few meters from the corner of Paredes and Nicanor Reyes aka Morayta.

    Tip: You're using mobile. Tap the map and drag it downward to see the first placemark or pin (red.) Pinch the map 2 to 4 times until you can see LRT Recto. At that zoom level you'll get an idea about the location. Drag the map anywhere you want. You can zoom in again by 'pinch-out' gesture (on the map.)




    Alternatively, you can get to PRC from any point along Taft Avenue in just one ride only. But taking into consideration the traffic along Taft, the best way is by LRT. If you really want to get to PRC by one ride only, you can take a jeepney with "Cubao Quiapo" or "Fairview Quiapo" sign and get off at Nicanor Reyes formerly Morayta Street. If you're not familiar with these locations, please ask driver to drop you off at Morayta.

    Route #4

    From Cubao, Araneta Center, Gateway Mall, Project 4 and nearby areas.

    Option 1 - Ride an LRT-2 train bound for Recto, the last station in the other end. You can take a train in Araneta Center Cubao Station. Important: Make sure you're in LRT-2 and not in MRT-3 as both lines have the same names of their stations. To avoid confusion, remember that MRT-3 is in EDSA while LRT-2 is in Aurora Blvd, and LRT-2 Araneta Center Cubao Station is connected to Gateway Mall. This direction is also the best route to take if your point of origin is along the path of LRT-2, e.g. Santolan, Katipunan, Anonas, Betty Go Belmonte, Gimore, V. Mapa, Pureza, etc. Get off the train at Recto Station. Get out of the station through the exit to the left side which is alongside the big Isetann mall. Below the station, along Recto Avenue, just in front of Recto Station entrance, ride a jeepney with any of these signs: "Morayta", "Nicanor Reyes" or "PRC". Pay minimum. The jeepney will take Recto Avenue and then it will turn left on Nicanor Reyes formorly Morayta. Get off the jeepney at Paredes Street, the last road to the right of Nicanor Reyes before Espana. Walk along Paredes street until you get to the gate of PRC, to the left of Paredes Street. It's very near, almost at the corner of Nicanor Reyes and Paredes Street.

    Option 2 - In Aurora Boulevard where Araneta Center Station and Anonas Station of LRT-2 are located, ride a jeepney with "Quiapo" sign. If you're from area near Anonas Station like Project 4, you need to get to the part of Aurora Boulevard near Araneta Center Cubao Station of LRT-2 because the jeepneys going to Quiapo only pass through here.

    Ask the driver to drop you off at Morayta now known as Nicanor Reyes. Before you get to Nicanor Reyes aka Morayta, the jeep will pass through Welcome Rotonda, UST or University of Santo Tomas and more intersections in between. Next to UST is P. Noval Street, followed by Eloisa, Tolentino and Adelina streets. Next to Adelina is P. Campa. There's Mcdonald's between Adelina and P. Campa. Get off at unloading Station or "Babaan" in front of Mcdonald's. In the opposite corner of P. Campa is KFC.

    There's also a pedestrian overpass next to KFC. Go across Espana via this pedestrian overpass towards the opposite side where Mang Inasal, Chowking and Greenwich are located.

    Photos below are taken from underneath the pedestrian overpass towards the direction of Nicanor Reyes aka Morayta.

Then you walk towards pedestrian overpass and go across Espana. Following the red line, you will pass by Chowking, Mang Inasal ang then Greenwich Pizza. Turn left on the street that borders Greenwich which is Paredes. As you can see PRC is to the left of Paredes Street.

    Exit Recto Station to the left of the Station. Along Recto Avenue where Isetann Mall is located at the corner of Evangelista and Recto. Wait for a jeepney with "Morayta" or "Gastambide" sign. Ride one of these jeepneys, pay minumum. No need to ask the driver to drop you off at your destination if the sign of jeepney you ride is Morayta because its terminal is exactly located at the corner of Nicanor Reyes aka Morayta and Paredes Street where PRC is located. Just walk along Paredes and soon you will see PRC to the left. If the sign of the jeepney you ride is Gastambide then ask the driver to drop you off at PRC.

    Route #6

    From Pampanga, Bulacan, Novaliches, Balintawak, Bagong Barrio and nearby areas. Ride a bus, a jeep or FX bound to Manila via NLEX and get off at Balintawak. Walk towards Balintawak Station of LRT-1 and ride a train going to Baclaran. Get off at Doroteo Jose Station.

Ride a jeepney with "Baclaran Taft" which takes the whole stretch of Taft Ave. Get off the jeep at your destination.
