How To Commute To Tagaytay

Option #1 By Bus
The following bus companies provide transport between Manila and Batangas, with Tagaytay CIty as a major stop. Please take note that these buses travel a slow route - Aguinaldo Highway, which traverses Bacoor, Imus, Dasmarinas, and Silang in Cavite. 

Kindly ask the bus conductor to let you off in Tagaytay Rotonda.

FROM CUBAO


There are buses going to Nasugbo in Batangas parked in front of Alimall, Cubao. There are Air-conditioned buses available. I still don't know the fare as of this writing because we usually bring our own car whenever we visit Tagaytay City.

FROM TAFT

You could also try the bus terminal at Taft station. If you are coming from MRT, take the exit at the left side. You will find Crow buses going to Olivarez/ Nasugbu at the back of Dunkin Donuts/ Chowking/ Sogo. It will pass Tagaytay City.

Travel time is approximately 3 hours. So that's a pretty long ride if you avail of public transportation.

Option #2 By Van

There are vans going to Tagaytay in Mandaluyong just in front of Jollibee in Starmall, Mandaluyong.

You could also ride a van located along a street before Metropoint mall along Edsa-Pasay Rotonda. The van is going to Batangas but it will pass by Tagaytay City via Sta. Rosa exit. This will shorten your travel time to just about 1 hour and a half. The route is through Southwoods exit then to Aguinaldo highway, Silang, Cavite. 

Option #3 By private vehicle
