    The 3,000 capacity Ynares Sports Arena is situated in Shaw Boulevard, Pasig City approximately 1 kilometer and 250 meters away from EDSA corner Shaw Boulevard where MRT-3 Shaw Station is located. Heading off to this sports center from both north (Alabang, Sucat, Baclaran, FTI, Bicutan, NAIA) and south (Monumento, Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela, Cubao, Fariview, Novaliches) of Metro Manila is relatively easy.


    By bus, you need to ride one with "Crossing Ibabaw" sign in its front, e.g. "Monumento Crossing Ibabaw", "Baclaran Crossing Ibabaw", "Alabang Crossing Ibabaw" and "Fairview Crossing Ibabaw", and alight at Shaw Boulevard also known as Crossing. By train, from any station of MRT-3, alignt at Shaw Station.


    From EDSA, you need to ride a jeepney with "Pasig Palengke" sign. I'm gonna give you guide and direction in such a way that you don't need to ask for driver's assistance. First, go to PARKLEA Jeppney Terminal located along Shaw Boulevard opposite Starmall.

    How to get to the jeepney terminal from MRT Shaw Station?


    If you're riding a train from Taft Avenue Station, go to escalator near to the rear of the train. If you're riding a train from North Avenue Station, go to escalator near to the front of the train. Go up the second level of the station. From the turnstile (exit machine), go right and enter a glass door, then go right again and use the stairs to get to the lower level of the station again. From the foot of the stairs, go to your left to exit the station towards the jeepney terminal. Once in the ground, walk along Shaw Boulevard away from the corner of EDSA until you get to the jeepney terminal next to Andok's Lechon.

    How to get to jeepney terminal from the bus unloading areas?


    If you're riding a bus from Monumento, Fairview, Cubao or Novaliches, and you get off the bus before the bus crosses Shaw Boulevard, walk across Shaw Boulevard, then walk along Shaw Boulevard from corner of EDSA until you get to the jeepney terminal next to Andok's. After the bus crossed Shaw, walk along Shaw Boulevard from the corner of EDSA to get to the jeepney terminal.

    If you're riding a bus from Baclaran, Alabang or Sucat, and you gets off the bus before the bus crosses Shaw Boulevard, cross EDSA and walk further along Shaw Boulevard until you see the jeepney terminal next to Andok's Lechon. If the bus has already crossed Shaw Boulevard before you got off, walk across Shaw to get back to the other corner, then cross EDSA, and walk further along Shaw Boulevard to get the jeepney terminal next to Andok's.

    Ride a jeepney with "Pasig Palengke" sign.


    In the terminal entrance, jeepneys of different destinations are parked in a row. The jeepneys with "Pasig Palengke" sign occupy the last two slots. Ride one of these jeepneys. Pay minimum fare.

    Now, here's the simple guide along the jeepney route up to Ynares Sports Arena. If you pay attention here, there's no need to ask the jeepney driver to drop you off at the exact location of Ynares Sports Arena. It would be a big help if you're sitting beside the driver or if you're at the back, make sure you're sitting in the left side of the jeep. You can easily do that because you're going to ride the jeep at the terminal.

    4. @ barrio. Please ride a jeepney with "Pasig Palengke" sign at the corner of V Mapa and Ramon Magsaysay Blvd. That jeep will pass by Kapitolyo Pasig via Shaw Blvd.

    5. @ barrio. Its way too far from where you ride "Pasig Palengke" jeepney. You get to pass by MRT Shaw via either Shaw EDSA Flyover or Shaw EDSA crossing. Then you will pass by Pioneer St. Next to it is West Capitol Drive. Get off the jeep right there which is just few meters before Ynares Sports Arena. Walk your way to Charlie's Grind & Grill.
