Secrets of the city: Makati to UST in 50 minutes

Faye Cura, who runs the blog Ang Fierra Ni Juana, was attending a seminar in University of Santo Tomas last week when she discovered the fastest way to get to España from her house on Delpan Street across JP Rizal Avenue (near Puregold) in Makati City during the morning rush hour.

Here’s her tip: Take the Taft-LRT-Bukid jeepney and get off at Taft Avenue near Pedro Gil St (30 minutes), walk to LRT Pedro Gil Station and head to Bambang Station (10 minutes), and then walk on Remigio Street to UST (10 minutes).

Total travel time: 50 minutes.
