Thank you to Elean for giving us an update on the available FX routes! :)

jhom said...

how about from antipolo to eastwood?
thanks!

lance said...

Hi jhom, from Antipolo, ride an FX to Ever Gotesco Ortigas. From there, ride a jeep or FX to Cubao and get off at Eastwood City. Hope this helps!

LYNDA said...

hi, i'm starting to work in eastwood next week, and going there now is costing me pesos for taxi fare. where exactly in philcoa are the FX rides? and what time are they there? are they coming in to CP Garcia? thanks for this site, this is more useful than the actual Eastwood Web site :D

lance said...

Hi Lynda, based from our sources, the PhilCoA-Eastwood FXs are located across McDonalds, near the Wet Market. If you can't find them, you can ask the barkers where they are parked. We're not sure what times they'll be there, but we think like most FX taxis at PhilCoA, they'll be there from 7am to 10am.

With regards to passing by East Avenue (Carlos P. Garcia Avenue), we're not sure what route they take (either via Katipunan or Cubao).

On your first day, you can try riding an FX from PhilCoA just to see where it passes to get to Eastwood. Although... it is not very recommended that you ride an PhilCoA-Eastwood FX other than at its terminal since most likely it will be full until it reaches Eastwood (just like the Divisoria-Makati FX). Hope this helps! :)

Sheree said...

Hi there, just a quick question. From Quezon Ave MRT, do you have schedules when there are FX's going to Eastwood, Libis because I didn't see any FX going to Eastwood? Also from Eastwood to Quezon Ave is there a similar FX service? Thank you!

lance said...

Hi Sheree, sadly we don't have a schedule for the FX from Quezon Avenue (near McDonald's) to Eastwood. We think like most shuttles to Eastwood, they'll be there from around 7am - 10am. You can ask some of the barkers at the area.

With regards to a return trip to Quezon Avenue, we think that there might not be one (like most rare FX Shuttles like: Divi-Makati, PhilCoA-Makati, etc.) However, you can confirm this with the barkers or the FX driver. Hope this helps!

patchyness said...

Hi! I would like to confirm if the FX from Galleria is only until 9AM? My shift is from 9PM onwards so I'm wondering if there are still FX from around 8PM? Thanks!

lance said...

Hi patchyness, based from our sources, the FX is only available at morning. However, we think that there might be a chance that there would be an "evening shift" maybe around 6pm - 8pm (?) due to the rush hour.

In any case, just in case there is no FX, you can ride a jeep to Rosario or Cainta and get off at C-5 corner Ortigas Avenue. From there ride a jeep to Cubao and get off at Eastwood. Hope this helps!

Hi!

Thanks for the info! I'm also considering to work in Eastwood, but I live in Muntinlupa/Las Pinas. Based on your post, I think the best route would be the FX to Marikina from Park Square One, or the FX from Ortigas. Do you know the schedules of these FXs? How about the best route going back to Ayala (South) especially in the evening?

Thanks again!

Hi! There is an FX terminal in Market!Market! that goes to Rosario. Will it pass by IPI? Thanks.

How abt from marikina to eastwood,? Tnx!

Damian Bathory said...

I find it funny when vacationers don't even bother checking sites like this or maps to grasp how to get around the place they're going to. Do they even know that personal exploration can be just as fun as any petra tours?
