Ever since I started working in Makati again I have taken to ride the EDSA MRT line almost every day. I live in Cubao near Camp Crame and my work since January of 2011 is in Magallanes. When I started riding the MRT to work, I would walk all the way from our house to the MRT Santolan-Annapolis station. I would then wait to squeeze into the MRT train. Sometimes I would have to skip several trains before I could finally push my way into a coach. After 7am, the situation is such that passing trains would normally be packed sardines-tight.
I would then endure the fifteen to twenty minutes or so ride to Magallanes station where I would alight. I would then walk all the way to Lapu-lapu Avenue in Magallanes where a shuttle from our office regularly plies every fifteen minutes.
Riding the MRT can be truly challenging but it beats having to drive a car in the morning. The few times that I bring a car to the office, it would normally take me more than an hour to brave the early morning rush hour traffic on EDSA.
