From Las Pinas, you could just ride a bus or an fx to Lawton directly (via Coastal) from Alabang-Zapote road. You don't have to go all the way around to Alabang to find a Lawton bus.

anne said...

from LRT Station, walkable naman pero sumakay ka nalang ng PRC/Morayta na jeep. Dadaan yun sa harap mismo ng FEU. sabihin mo nalang sa mamang driver kung san ka bababa.
