It is now more convenient to used PNR Trains as transportation. The railways were already cleared from residential squatter. You can now enjoy the view specially the different graffiti. It is also the cheaper way of transportation, fare ranges from 10-30 pesos depending on the destination. But you need to catch the train on their schedules.
