How To Go To SM Aura Premier From Other Locations
By UV Express
You can go directly to SM Aura from these locations: Antipolo, Ayala, Crossing, FTI, Guadalupe, Pasig, Pateros, Rosario, SM Bicutan, SM Marikina, SM Masinag, SM Megamall, SM Moa, Taguig Bicutan and Taguig Tipas.
The reason for this is because UV Express Terminal in SM Aura aka SM City Taguig is located at the basement parking few meters from mall entrance. Unlike BGC Bus Terminal, riding a UV Express is more convenient in the sense that you don't need to walk far from the terminal. So, if you preferred this mode of transportation, head to the respective terminals of UV Express in your area, e.g., SM Megamall Terminal - back of Bldg B and SM MOA - North or South Terminal.
From EDSA-McKinley in MRT Ayala Station vicinity
There's also a jeepney terminal from EDSA-Ayala. The jeepney terminal is located at the back of Shell Gasoline Station. The difference between riding a jeepney and riding a BGC Bus is that the jeepney goes directly to Market Market. So, it's faster compare to a BGC Bus which passes through various streets to drop off and pick up passengers on its designated Bus Stops. In going to SM Aura, ask the driver as to where you can alight nearer to the mall.
Take a jeepney with "Guadalupe Gate 3 Ft Bonifacio" signs on both sides of its body and "Market Market Gate 3" or "SM Aura" signboard on its front. The loading terminal is located along Burgos St between Jollibee and McDonald's. Burgos St is perpendicular to EDSA and both McDonald's and Jollibee are located at the opposite corners of EDSA and Burgos St. From MRT Guadalupe Station, it's best to enter the connected mall, use the escalators and head toward Burgos exit. Ask driver to drop you off at SM Aura or unloading area nearest to SM Aura.
