5 Tips for Every Commuter

Mars, FN's editorial assistant, shares a few helpful tips for pounding the city streets. By Marianne Salazar

Train rides in Manila may get you from one point of the city to another at a relatively fast pace, but let’s face it: the MRT during rush hour is absolute hell. 

Commuting may be a pretty frustrating experience for some of us, but I think it’s a necessary life skill for surviving the chaos that is Metro Manila. I firmly believe that everyone needs to learn how to commute--yes, even if you’ve been privileged enough to have a car and a driver at your disposal since the day you were born.

If you so happen to be one of those fortunate people, why don’t you try stepping out of your comfort zone for once to see the alternative transportation options Manila’s roads can offer you? Here are basic things to remember whether you’re riding a train, a jeep, a bus, a tricycle, or a cab. And before you turn up your nose at the idea of taking public transportation, remember that even Anne Curtis takes the MRT from time to time!
