    • JEEPNEY: The cheapest option, would only cost P15 per person. Ride a 04H jeepney from USC-Main, Capitol, Escario or Gorordo. Ask the driver to drop you off near Lantaw. Then walk for about 1-2 kilometers going to Mountain View. Navigate through Google Maps/Waze, or ask around for directions. The road is steep, but a little bit of hiking can be fun and healthy.
    • HABAL-HABAL: Ride a motorbike (max of 2 persons per bike), near or surrounding from JY Square Mall in Lahug. It would cost only P25 per head per way. You may need to pay more and schedule ahead if you want a ride back from the city.
