Wait for a shuttle bus to arrive and get in. Pay 20 pesos. From NAIA-3, the bus will take Andrews Avenue on the way to Roxas Boulevard where it will turn right, then it will turn right again onto EDSA on its way to NAIA Shuttle Bus Station located at Pasay Taft Rotonda which is very near to LRT EDSA Station and MRT Taft Station.
You have 2 options in going to POEA:
Get off the shuttle bus at its station in Pasay Rotonda and ride an MRT-3 Train bound for North Station and get off the train at Ortigas Station. If you choose this option, you will travel fast but you need to walk a little bit far from Ortigas Station to POEA, approximately 500 meters.
After you alight from the train at Ortigas Station, turn left from turnstile (exit machine) and go down the station via stair located to the north part of the station. If you turn right from turnstile, the stair will take you to the ground going to SM Mega Mall.
Walk along EDSA's north bound lane until you reach Robinson's Galleria mall which is located at the corner of EDSA and Ortigas Avenue. POEA is located at the opposite corner of EDSA and Ortigas. To get to POEA, use the footbridge that connects Robinson's Galleria and the walkway going to POEA.
Ask the driver of NAIA Shuttle Bus to drop you off at Heritage Hotel. The driver will announce the arrival to unloading area in Heritage Hotel. Get off right there and ride a bus with "Ortigas Ilalim POEA" sign. The sign of the bus may not contain POEA but it should display "Ortigas Ilalim". Don't ride a bus with "Ortigas Ibabaw" sign. Only "Ortigas Ilalim" buses stop at POEA. Get off the bus at the unloading area at Robinson's Galleria which is located at the corner of EDSA and Ortigas Avenue. If you choose this option, your travel to POEA is slower because of the traffic in EDSA and the long duration the bus spends in loading areas to pick up more passengers. But its more comfortable as you don't need to walk far. Instead, you will just walk across EDSA via footbridge to get to POEA which is just opposite Robinson's Galleria.
