Newport City is located opposite NAIA Terminal 3. Conveniently, Airport Loop shuttle bus is the way to go if you come from MRT Taft Station and LRT EDSA Station and your destination is any of these: Resorts World Manila, Star Cruises Centre, Remington Hotel, Newport Mall and other institutions which are located just across the airport loop bus stops.
But what if your destination is too far from NAIA Shuttle's unloading areas. Marriott Hotel, Maxims Hotel, Belmont Hotel, Palm Tree and The Shrine of St Therese church are located way far from the Airport Loop bus stops. The good news is you can get to any of these institutions from the Newport City free shuttle's bus stops in a breeze. What's more? Ride is free around Newport City.
Officially known as NCEA Free Shuttle, the bus terminal stop is located at the northern entrance of Newport City where public jeepneys from both Pasay Rotunda and Sales Rd unload passengers. You only need to walk a little bit from jeepney unloading area to the free shuttle terminal, wait for shuttle's arrival, get on board and get off at your destination. NCEA is acronym for Newport City Estates Association.
How to get to Newport City free shuttle terminal
From MRT/LRT stations in Pasay Rotunda
Wait for and take a jeepney with "Nichols" sign at loading area along EDSA's northbound lane near MRT Taft Station in Pasay Rotunda. You can also get inside the Bus Terminal at the back of McDonald's where Airport Loop has a terminal and look for the jeepney queue. Get off the jeepney at Newport City northern tip gateway where there is huge "Newport City" signage and big statues of five carabaos.
That is Newport Blvd. At the left corner is the Emperador Bldg which you should immediately see. The jeepneys actually stop there to drop off passengers. The Newport City NCEA free shuttle terminal is located along the left hand side of Newport Blvd as you enter it, on Emperador Bldg side. But you must make sure that you're on the right place because a bus from Eastwood City also parks along that side. There's a road sign that reads "NCEA Free Shuttle." Go there. See the first map below. Click all markers in the map - pin, bus icon, jeepney icon.
From Sales Bridge in SLEX
This is the route if you come from BGC boarding a jeepney to Gate 3 or if you are from Chino Roces Ave Ext. You can also take this if you're from Alabang or Southern Tagalog provinces (CABALARZON.) Just remember to alight at Sales/Nichols/Villamor as what you must mention to driver. There's also a PNR train station there. So both from Tutuban and as far as Bicol, commuters can use this route. Walk and cross SLEX via Sales Bridge from northbound lane of SLEX. If you're riding a jeepney or bus from EDSA/Pasay/Manila area, you don't need to cross Sales Bridge. Go to jeepney terminal that you will immediately see at Sales Rd which continues Sales Bridge. Those jeepneys are headed to Newport City. You need to buy fare token before you get on the jeepney in the queue. Same way, you will also alight at Newport City free shuttle terminal if you opt to use it. BUT... if your destination is Resort World Manila or Remington Hotel or Star Cruises Center and even St Therese Church as well as Palm Tree, you don't need to use the free shuttle because jeepneys from Sales Brige/Rd pass by right at their locations. In fact, RWM has entrance along Sales Rd. So just ask driver to drop you off at any of the aforementioned destinations.
