    How to go to Fisher Mall by public transportation?

    Route #1

    From Munoz, LRT-Roosevelt Station, Project 8, Congressional Ave, Frisco, etc.

    At the corner of EDSA and Roosevelt, ride a jeepney with any of these signs on the front: "Pantranco", "Fisher Mall", "Quiapo Espana", "Welcome Rotunda", "Morayta", "Banawe", "Quiapo". Pay minimum. The jeepney will traverse the whole stretch of Roosevelt and it will turn right onto Quezon Ave. Get off the jeepney at the unloading area before Quezon Ave. Cross the road to get to the other corner of Roosevelt-Quezon Ave where Fisher Mall is situated.

    Route #2

    From Cubao and MRT-3 Araneta Center Cubao Station - one jeepney ride only

    Walk your way to the corner of EDSA and Aurora Blvd. Use the pedestrian overpasses there and climb down to the EDSA-Aurora Blvd corner of southbound EDSA, meaning all buses that pass through EDSA lane are bound for Pasay, Makati, Alabang, Baclaran, etc. Next, make sure that jeepneys that pass through your Aurora Blvd lane are bound for Divisoria, Stop&Shop, SM City Sta Mesa, etc. Once you're on the correct corner, walk along Aurora Blvd from the corner of EDSA until you get to the corner of the next corner which is Sgt J Cololos St. The jeepney to ride has the route and sign of either "Roces Palengke Pantranco" or "Roces Palengke Fiher Mall" or any variation. The important thing is there must be "Roces" and "Pantranco" or "Fisher Mall" on the sign of the jeepney. Pay minimum and get off the jeepney at its terminal in Roces. All remaining passengers alight there. All you need now is a short walk to Quezon Ave and you will see the mammoth building of Fishermall at the other side of Quezon Ave. Use the pedestrian overpass to get there.

    Route #3

    From Southwest Integrated Terminal in Coastal Mall Paranaque - one bus ride only.

    Go to the terminal of buses bound for "Fairvew" via Espana. Warning: Don't ride bus bound for Fairview that takes EDSA. Make sure that the route is via Espana. Usually they have secondary sign that reads "Lawton" and "Quiapo." It's a long trip and the stop you must use is the one nearer if not located at the corner of Quezon Ave and Roces Ave. After getting off the bus at Roces Ave, just use the pedestrian overpass to get to Fisher Mall.

    Route #4

    From Pier-South, Rizal Park, Luneta, Manila Hotel, Intramuros, Pamantasan ng Maynila, Manila Cathedral, etc.

    The sign of jeepney to ride is "Project-8 Munoz Pantranco" or "Project-8 Munoz Fisher Mall." Inside Intramuros, it passes through the main road in front of Manila Cathedral before heading to Pier. From Pier, it passes by Manila Hotel via Bonifacio Drive. It turns left onto Padre Burgos where you can ride if you're from Rizal Park or Luneta. If you're from Pamantasan ng Maynila, just cross Padre Burgos and flag-down one of so many jeepneys with "Project 8" sign.

    Just remember the jeepney must take Roosevelt Ave after traversing Quezon Ave. Roosevelt Ave is perpendicular to the left of Quezon Ave. The jeepney will either make left or make a U-turn and turns right onto Roosevelt. You can get off the jeepney at the exact location of Fisher Mall, just wait until it has already made a U-turn in Quezon Ave or turns left onto Roosevelt (if Left-turns are allowed).

    Route #5

    From TM Kalaw, Manila City Hall, SM City Manila, Lawton, Quiapo, Lerma, Morayta, UST, Welcome Rotunda, etc.

In Kalaw, you can ride at the corner of Taft and Kalaw (southbound) or at Kalaw cor Maria Orosa St. In Manila City Hall and SM City Manila, ride at Padre Burgos or outside SM City Manila. In Quiapo, wait for this jeepney along Quezon Blvd opposite Quiapo Church. From other areas mentioned, flag-down a jeepney of this sign along Espana (north-bound). Read second paragraph of Route #4.

Pay minimum. Don't take a jeepney with only "Delta" sign.

    From Alabang, Bicutan, FTI, Sucat, etc.

    Ride a city bus bound for north of MM such as "Novaliches", "Monumento", "Fairview", "Malanday", etc. There must be a secondary sign that reads "Cubao Ibabaw."

Please read Route #2 and Route #6.

    Route #9

    From Monumento, Malanday, Navotas and all stations of LRT-1.

    This route is via LRT-1 but you can also opt for bus/jeepney from Monumento.

And there are lots of jeepney in Monumento headed for Munoz. From all stations of LRT-1, take the train to Roosevelt Station.

    Route #10

    You only need two jeepney rides. The first one is to Quezon Ave via G Araneta Ave. The terminal of jeepneys going to Quezon Ave is located at Guirayan St, the road between SM Mezza Residences and SM Mezza II. Use the pedestrian overpasses from SM City Sta Mezza and climb down the bridge at SM Mezza Residences which is located at the other corner of Aurora Blvd and G Araneta Ave. All remaining passengers will alight at the last stop (other terminal) of the jeepney located at the corner of G Araneta Ave and Agno Ext where the building of Sanctuarium is located. Walk along G Araneta Ave toward the next main intersection which is Quezon Ave. Wait for a jeepney bound for Project 8 with signs that read "Project 8 Frisco Pantranco" or "Project 8 Munoz Fisher Mall."
