In going to Mayong payong a lot of options:

From the City go to terminal ride a multicab going to Mobo just tell the driver to drop you off at Mayong payong intersection ( fare Php20/pax )
From the City ride a tricycle going to Mobo ( tricycle be waiting to be fully loaded before going ) just tell the driver to drop you off at Mayong payong intersection ( fare Php15/pax )
