  • This commuters guide for those going to a building inside BONIFACIO GLOBAL CITY must only be used if you are forced to board an Upper West Route or Lower West Route bus at BGC Bus Terminal in EDSA. It happens when there are so many passengers and West/East buses are inadequate. Upper/Lower West buses are not regulars. They are only extras. These additional routes are made available only on case by case basis. You need to read this, so that if the only available bus when you get there is either Upper West or Lower West, you know where to alight. For regular bus routes from EDSA to a bldg in BGC, go to Commute Guide To Buildings & Attractions Inside BGC From MRT Ayala Station.

    Below are the three rush-hours routes of BGC Buses from its terminal in EDSA just meters away from MRT Ayala Station. Click each route, you will land to their respective route maps. Click the "back" button there to return here and continue reading the guide.

    What is the Name of your Building Destination?


    You must know the name of the building you are headed to. You're just going to look up the building in the lists below. Once you found it, you remember the bus stop name, get the walking direction given and off you go. Commuting to a BGC building location, even for first timers has never been easier. Just read on.

    Which Bus Stop will you use to get to your building?


    Once you see the name of your building, you will easily get the Bus Stop it is near to. In that section of this guide is the ordinal position of that bus stop from EDSA Bus Terminal, i.e., first stop from EDSA, second bus stop, etc. It is important that you know the ordinal position or number of your bus stop so that you know when to get off the bus. You will also see the name of the bus stop on the waiting shed - written conspicuously.

    Walking direction from Bus Stop to your building is linked to separate page


    Very Important: You must wait for the new page to load COMPLETELY before you can read the walk direction for your building. Except for HSBC Bus Stop, all Bus Stops here are the exact Bus Stops used in regular routes during off-peak hours. So the walking directions from Bus Stop to buildings during peak hours and during off-peak hours are of course the same. So we linked your Bus Stop here to the location on the regular route page where walking directions are given. Remember that the new page automatically scrolls down to the location of particular walk direction. The browser might become slower. So you must wait patiently.

    How do I know which Bus Stop to get off from the bus?


    As you read through this guide, you get to know which Bus Stop inside Bonifacio Global City is to use to get to your building destination. Lists of buildings for each bus stop are provided. Look for the name of your building on the first bus stop. If it's not found there go to the next bus stop and so on. It is followed by walking directions from Bus Stop (HSBC Bus Stop only.) In other bus stops, 'walk direction' links to the separate page are provided. The separate page is our main article for commuting to BGC buildings & attractions from MRT-3 Ayala Station in EDSA. If you want to check the whole article first, open it in a new window or tab by hitting this link: Commute Guide To Buildings & Attractions Inside BGC From MRT Ayala Station

    Now begin your commute from BGC Bus Terminal located in EDSA-Ayala just across MRT-3 Ayala Station. Next subheading tells you how.

    How To Get To Buildings In BGC During Rush Hour from MRT Ayala Station?


    Buy ticket from Ticket Booth at BGC Bus Terminal which is located across MRT-3 Ayala Station stairs, northbound exit. The BGC Bus Terminal is inside McKinley Exchange bldg aka Telus which is at the corner of EDSA and McKinley. Once you have the ticket, stand in line under the sign of your bus route,i.e., Upper, Lower or East. Or follow directions given by officers managing the queue. Alight at the Bus Stop nearer to your building destination and walk toward it. It's important that you must already know the location of your building in relation to the nearest Bus Stop before you ride the bus. So here are my tips: Do these before riding a train to MRT Ayala Station. Look for the name of your building or spot to which you are headed on the lists that you will see below. If you don't find your destination on the first list, go to the next list, and so on. Once you see your building or spot, check what bus route it is under. Then remember the location of bus stop nearer to it. Write in a piece of paper or type on your tablet's or phone's notepad the walking direction from the bus stop to your destination. That's it.

    Don't forget to see the map below the text there and click the pins on the map. To return to this page again, DO NOT click "back" button there. Instead, click the tab of this page on your browser. Now, if your building is listed above, click the link below:

    Here is the last set of building destinations served by Upper West route of buses from EDSA-Ayala. If you found your building here, click the link below the list for walk direction from the bus stop.

    Accralaw
    Bellagio
    Blue Sapphire Residences
    Bonifacio Ridge
    Bonifacio Technology Centre
    Burgos Circle
    Crescent Park Residences
    Fort Palm Spring Condominium

    JP Morgan Chase
    Kensington Place
    Net Plaza
    Penhurst Park Place
    The Fort Residences
    The Sapphire Residences

    If your destination is listed above, you must get off the bus at the 3rd Bus Stop which is located at 1st Ave and it is named Crescent Park West. The bus turns left onto 1st Ave from 31st St. From Crescent Park Bus Stop, walk your way to your building destination. Click 'walk directions' link' below after reading instructions from here down to that link - to get the walking direction for your destination. You MUST wait for the next page until it is loaded completely, otherwise you will get lost. DO NOT scroll the page while it is loading. Just wait.

    Once the page is loaded, begin reading only after this sentence:

    "Here are the buildings nearer to this bus stop:"

    Ignore the first paragraph there and the title. You see that page is for off-peak hours but the bus stops are the same used in peak-hours. The big difference is the ordinal number of each bus stop in relation to its distance from EDSA Bus Terminal. That is why you need to ignore the title, because it says the ordinal number during off-peak hours. We are in peak-hours here and the ordinal numbers of bus stops here are different.

    So just read the walking direction from the bus stop on that page to your building destination. There is map for more help. Click each red pin in the map to reveal the name of the building it represents. Now go click the link below.

    The fourth Bus Stop of Lower West route (from EDSA) is the sixth in regular or off-peak hours route. It is named Fort Victoria. That is why when you get on that page, it says "Sixth Bus Stop." Just remember during peak hours, Fort Victoria is fourth bus stop inside BGC from EDSA BGC Bus Terminal. And it is not practical to get off the bus there as it takes longer time on the whole loop. The fastest way is to use the first bus stop which is McKinley Parkway. Nevertheless, below are the buildings very near to Fort Victoria.

    Upper Route Bus and East Route Bus share the first Bus Stop from EDSA-Ayala which is HSBC Bus Stop in 5th Ave. So you can also take East Route Bus (rush hours only) in going to the first set of buildings mentioned in Upper Route.

    Second Bus Stop from EDSA Terminal in this route is Nutriasia. It is located along 30th St before the corner of 9th Ave. From 5th Ave, the bus turns left onto 30th St. BHS means Bonifacio High Street and this Bus Station is used in going to the center of High Street instead of the front which is in 5th Ave. 9th Ave passes through the middle of linear High Street park.



    At this point, commute directions to buildings served by "East Route" bus during peak hours are the same with "East Route" bus during peak hours. So, for that, it's better to use the main guide. Look for your building there in alphabetically listed buildings in the table, click it, and you will land to the walking direction you need. Go check the map and click each pin and placemark on the map. Here is the link to our main commuting guide to buildings inside BGC from MRT Ayala Station:

    Commute Guide To Buildings & Attractions Inside BGC From MRT Ayala Station




    Route maps of Rush-hour BGC Buses from MRT Ayala Station


    Upper West - served by HM Bus/Worthy Bus


    Tip: Dragging the map from Left to Right will show you how Upper West bus navigates from MRT Ayala to Upper West BGC and back. 'Pinch-out' gesture shows you street names and if you know the street of your bldg you know which bus stop to use. Play around with the map: 'pinch-out', 'pinch-in', drag. Familiarize yourself with vicinity and by zooming in (pinch-out) alone you get to see major buildings such as Globe Tower, Shangri-La Hotel The Fort, etc.



    Lower West - served by BGC Bus


    Tip: By viewing map on your smartphone in landscape mode you get a larger map similar to laptop & desktop view. Drag the map Left to Right and it shows the 'Lower West' Bus paths and turns. By knowing the ordinal position of the bus stop nearest to your building destination, you will not get lost as you get to alight at the right Bus Stop. But first, find out what bus stop your building is nearest to. So hit the 'back' button now.



    East Route - served by HM Bus/Worthy Bus


    In this map for 'East Route' bus, the last three bus stops have the same ordinal positions from EDSA as with the off-peak hours bus routes. That is Nutriasia, Universtiy Parkway and Market Market are second, third and fourth, respectively, from EDSA Terminal in both off-peak and peak hours.





    Hope this guide helps you in commuting to your building destination or any spot within Bonifacio Global City. Especially that this particular post is created for commuters going to BGC during rush hours.
