Directions on how to go to SM Mall of Asia and MOA Arena:

Take note, the SM Mall of Asia is at the very end of EDSA. So all you have to focus on is to get to EDSA and go to its southern end. The nearest LRT/MRT Station is EDSA-Taft Avenue.

From the North:

Option 1. Quickest way to commute is by riding the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) Blue Line southbound. You can go down at the Taft Avenue Station and then either ride a bus bound for SM Mall of Asia or Baclaran or take a jeepney bound for SM Mall of Asia on the intersection below the terminal.

Option 2. You can also just take a bus going to Pasay/MOA if you are not pressed for time.

*Take note that there’s a special jeepney that passes through Pasong Tamo, particularly Waltermart and Don Bosco and then goes to Osmena (South Super Highway), then turns to EDSA to go to MOA. These are special trips that you might be able to spot.

Option 3. If you are taking the LRT, see separate section below.

From the South:

If you are coming from Alabang or any area from the south, you can take the jeepney going to Pasay Rotonda and then take the jeepney or bus under the Taft Avenue MRT station.

If you are coming from the Manila/Caloocan area or near the LRT stations, the best way is to take the Light Rail Transit (LRT) southbound and go down at the EDSA-Taft Avenue station, use the footbridge that connects the LRT station to the MRT station and then ride a jeepney or bus going to SM MOA, signboard is SM Mall of Asia, of course.

Also, there are jeepneys via Taft Avenue that go straight to MOA.

If you are in the Roxas Boulevard/Baclaran/Paranaque area, there are jeepneys that pass by that have signboards saying MOA, these jeepneys have terminals in the MOA area as well.

If you are in the Macapagal Boulevard/Pasay area, there are jeepneys that pass by that have signboards saying MOA, these jeepneys have terminals in the MOA area as well.
