A jeepney heading to a train station less than 3 miles away, would take 1 to 2 hours, and +30-60 mins for heavy traffic. In a railway transit, the ticketing process would take 30 mins, while the whole ride for 5 km will take 45-60 mins. In usual cases, an ordinary commuter might wait 45 mins for a public vehicle ride.

Data are contributed by its users. The more contributors, the data are more relevant. Thank you for your comment, RJ, haven't know that traffic jams are so bad in Manilla.

Please change the data. A bus ride to the city center in Manila takes around 90 minutes, a train ride takes about 60 minutes (mostly because of the waiting) and a car drive takes anywhere from 75-120 minutes to cover 15kms
