Thankfully, the Buendia bus terminal is accessible to commuters. The most straightforward way is to ride the LRT-1 train bound for Baclaran until Gil Puyat Station. From there, it’ll take you only a minute to walk to the Buendia bus terminal.
Don’t get confused: there is indeed a Buendia station on the MRT line but that’s not the stop you’re looking for. Instead of Pasay, you’ll end up in Makati! If you do end up taking the wrong train, just take a five minute walk to EDSA from the MRT Buendia station. Catch a bus to Baclaran and get off at Gil Puyat. Taft Avenue is generally a busy area so try to avoid the rush hour when commuting.
