Multi-mode commuting in Metro Manila

Postby Blumentritt on Thu Jul 07, 2016 1:48 am

Hello,

Is there anybody here who commutes daily in multi-mode in Metro Manila? I am considering a new job (more or less 8 am to 5 pm) in Makati. The plan is as follows:
1. 15 Minute Strida ride to LRT 2 Station Katipunan.
2. LRT 2 ride Katipunan to Cubao.
3. Change from LRT 2 to MRT 3 (15 minutes).
4. MRT 3 ride from Cubao to Buendia.
5. 15 Minute Strida ride to office in Salcedo Village.

Many years ago when I tried to catch the connection in Cubao, trains would come in, doors would open, nobody would leave, and nobody could enter as the trains where hopelessly full. I ended up taking a cab on EDSA.

The above was posted by Blumentritt, not Guest. Anyway, some add on questions:

1. Are there any problems bringing the Strida on the train during rush hours?
2. Rather than using my Strida LT I am considering to get the EVO with 3 speed gearbox. Would that be an advisable investment? I guess the question is about the trade off of speed versus weight.
3. A completely different approach would be to put the Strida into the trunk and drive in a car with my wife to Fort Bonifacio (her workplace) and take the Strida from there. Are people doing that? I only see people using racing bikes but never have seen a Strida biker.
