    Route #1

    From anywhere inside Bonifacio Global City or BGC

    Use any bus stop inside Bonifacio Global City and wait for a BGC bus with "North" sign. If you're in Market Market or SM Aura, take a BGC "Central Route" bus to RCBC bus stop and wait for BGC "North Route" bus. Get off the bus at the last terminal/stop which is located right at the location of St Michael the Archangel Parish Church.

    Alternatively and faster if you're in Market Market or SM Aura, take a jeepney to Guadalupe at loading area along McKinley Pkwy which is the road between Market Market and Serendra. In SM Aura, it is the road that bounded the lengthy side of the mall on the east, northeast to be specific.

    Route #2

    From MRT Guadalupe Station

    Exit the MRT Station at northbound exit which is attached to Guadalupe Commercial Center mall. Either enter the mall and exit the mall at the ground floor main entrance beside Chowking or use the train station stairs, walk uphill along EDSA and turn left on the perpendicular street which bounded the Guadalupe Commercial Center. There are jeepneys there. Ride one with any of these signs: "Fort Bonifacio", "Gate 3", and "Market Market." It will pass by St Michael the Archangel the Parish which you will see on your right once the jeepney enters Uptown area of BGC via 10th Ave. To make sure, just ask driver to drop you there.

    Route #3

    From MRT Ayala Station

    Exit the MRT Station at northbound exit and get inside BGC Bus Terminal. Take "West Route" BGC bus and alight at RCBC bus stop aka The Fort bus stop. Wait for the "North Route" BGC bus and get off at the last bus stop where the St Michael the Archangel Church is situated. You must buy ticket first from a crew manning the bus stop.

    Route #4

    From Gate 3 and Sales Road

    One long jeepney ride from Osmena Highway. Go to Gate 3 Plaza which you can see from Sales Bridge. Turn right onto the perpendicular street which also bounded the Gate 3 Plaza bldg. You will walk past the entrance of Gate 3 Plaza and immediately see the terminal of "Gate 3 to Guadalupe" jeepneys on the right, opposite Gate 3 Plaza. Go to the queue to board the next "on-duty" jeepney. Ask driver to drop you off at St Michael the Archangel church.

    Route #5

    From Monumento and others areas in CAMANAVA (Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela)

    Option 1. By train. Board a Baclaran bound LRT-1 train at nearest station and get off at EDSA Station. Transfer to MRT-3 to either Ayala Station or Guadalupe Station. If you prefer one jeepney ride from MRT to the church then get off the train at Guadalupe Station. If you prefer 2 aircon bus rides to the church, alight at Ayala Station. Ayala Station comes first. Guadalupe is next to Buendia which follows Ayala.

    Option 2. By bus. From any point of EDSA, take a bus bound for south of MM, i.e., Alabang, Baclaran, MOA, etc. Get off the bus at either Guadalupe or Ayala. Cross EDSA via pedestrian bridge in Guadalupe and MRT Station in Ayala. Take the next ride/rides - jeepney to the church or 2 BGC aircon buses to the the church. Guadalupe comes first before Ayala in this route. Take bus with "Ayala Ibabaw" secondary sign if you prefer to take BGC buses.

    Route #6

    From Novaliches, SM Fairview, Fairview Terraces and areas nearby

    Option 1 is to take a bus to south of MM mentioned in route #5 and follow given direction there. Option 2 is to take a bus or jeepney to EDSA and take Taft bound train and follow already given direction.

    Route #7

    From Alabang, Festival Mall, Starmall Alabang, Filinvest City, Sucat and areas nearby

    Option 1. Via PNR. From any station of PNR along Osmena Hi-way/SLEX, board a train bound for Tutuban and get off at Nichols Station. Head to Gate 3 Plaza by taking the road that continues Sales Bridge which crosses Osmena Hi-way. Walk away from the bridge and you'll see Gate 3 Plaza on the right. Follow direction given at route #4.

    Option 2. By bus or jeepney. Take a bus bound for north of MM, i.e., Monumento, Novaliches, Fairview, alight at Nichols or take a jeepney bound for Pasay Rotunda/MOA (Mall of Asia), alight at Nicholds. Follow direction given above.

    You can opt for Option 3 which is getting off the bus (bound for north of MM) at Ayala Ave and take 2 BGC buses to the church. But I don't recommend that for the reason that it is too way far out. But conveniently, it is the way to go like arriving at the church via 3 aircon buses.

    Option 1. Via PNR. Board a PNR train bound for Alabang and get off at Nichols Station. Follow direction given at Option 1 of Route #7.
