I'm allergic to taxis. I usually take the bus or jeep whenever I want to go to a certain place and the only time that I take a cab is when I'm in a hurry or there's totally no other means of transportation to reach my destination so I was really glad when I've learned that there's a shuttle service to NAIA Terminal 3 which means I don't need to spend more than a hundred bucks just to go to the airport.
The fare is just Php 20. This is actually beneficial for those who have a flight at NAIA Terminal 3 and on a tight budget. Finding the bus station at the airport is easy. If you're an arriving passenger, you can immediately see the station in front of the Arrival Exit. You can choose to get off the bus either in Baclaran, Heritage Hotel or at the station inside Genesis Bus Terminal.
Finding the bus terminal at EDSA can be a little tricky though. It is located inside Giselle’s Bus terminal which just beside the northbound lane of EDSA. So if you're taking the MRT you just need to get off at the Taft station which is just a few steps away from the terminal. The best landmarks to look for are Chowking and McDonald's which you can easily spot once you're there.
The NAIA Shuttle Bus going to Taft and vice versa is no longer operational. The shuttle is now only used for transferring passengers between terminals 1, 2 and 3 and the fare is still Php20.
If you still want to avoid taking a cab, the only cheaper option to reach NAIA terminal 3 is to take a Nichols bound jeep from EDSA and drop off near Circulo del Mundo rotunda(the huge egg).
