#Adie on Sep 27, 2015 :
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.
