    From the University of Santo Tomas, can you recommend a route to, and back from, Aliw Theater that doesn't use the LRT?

    @ Heidrek. Along Espana, wait for and ride a jeep with "Baclaran" sign. Alight at Pablo Ocampo aka Vito Cruz. Ride CCP Shuttle along Pablo Ocampo and ask the driver to drop you off near Aliw Theater. They don't stop exactly there so you need to walk a little bit.

    @ Heidrek. To get back to UST, ride the same shuttle and alight at Taft Ave. Ride a jeepney with "Espana Cubao" sign and alight at UST. Hope my direction helps you.
