    How to get to Makati City Hall: Commute and Driving Directions

    For people applying for business permits, real property taxes (amelyar), birth certificates (as well as marriage, death and other certifications from civil registry), even pay the hefty traffic violation fines meted out by the infamous MAPSA traffic enforcers.

    How to get to Makati City Hall-- the official residence of the President of the Republic of Makati:

    makati city hallMakati City Hall taken on board the Pasig River Ferry

    Commute to Makati City Hall is easy via the MRT Gudalupe Station (or
    from Pasig River Ferry Guadalupe terminal) From the station, walk
    towards McDonalds and Jollibee where you need to board a jeepney going
    to LRT/Pedro Gil and request the driver to drop you off at the munisipyo
    (municipal hall) on J.P. Rizal St then walk to the City Hall (right
    side). Note jeepneys plying the Guadalupe-Delpan route also pass by the
    city hall but they're on the other side of EDSA Guadalupe near Loyola
    Memorial Chapels.

    Alternatively, commuting from LRT Pedro Gil station, board jeepneys
    going to Guadalupe then alight near the city hall on S. Osmena (JP Rizal
    is a one-way street during the day that's why) after passing by Kalayaan
    and Nicanor Garcia (formerly Reposo)

    By public transport again LRT Gil Puyat Station (good for those coming
    from Cavite, Taft Avenue corner Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue), ride jeepneys
    going to PRC (Sta. Ana Race track or Philippine Racing Commission).
    Alight at the corner of Pasong Tamo and Kalayaan then transfer to a
    jeepney going to Guadalupe (either ibabaw of ilalim will do) and request
    the driver to drop you off at the new City Hall.

    Driving directions to Makati City Hall:

    Those fortunate enough to have a car, you can get to the City Hall via
    EDSA then turn right after crossing Guadalupe to J.P. Rizal, drive all
    the way towards Nicanor Garcia and turn right when you see the imposing
    building on your right. You can also get there via Makati-mandaluyong
    Bridge where it's about a kilometer from the corner of Makati Avenue and
    J.P. Rizal. (note: there's parking inside the city hall complex; color
    coding/number coding in Makati, there's no 10am-3pm window and does not
    suspend number coding scheme even if the MMDA suspended theirs)
