Jeepney Guide In Going To Selected Cebu Government Offices

Governement offices don’t usually change position or address overnight. However, it is still important to be familiarized with the local government offices around us. I bet the following agencies and offices are already familiar for most but there are still some fellow citizens outside Cebu City proper who still might need some aid in going around the city. We don’t know when we’d really need to access theses offices’ services but it really pays to be informed earlier as to their whereabouts.

Taxis, of course, are the best choice to go to places with the hassle. But then, it can be costly especially when you get caught in heavy traffic. Jeepneys are always there but it needs some patience during the ride. However it need not be that tortuous. You only need to know the exact jeep to ride on.


This is located at WT Corporate Tower, Mindanao Avenue, Cebu Business Park Cebu City. It’s just a walking distance from Parklane Hotel and Ayala Mall.  If you’re from Colon or downtown area, you can ride a jeepney with 14D signage as it goes directly to Ayala. Ask the locals once you reach the place and pretty sure they will just point out the building from a not so distance place. Just be careful with the running cars as the area can become a place for heavy traffic. Other jeepney signages which you can ride on include 13C,04C and 12L. Basically, you can ride anything that’s bound for Ayala and you are sure to get to the place.
