This highly urbanized city is in the northern part of Metro Manila and is further subdivided into two congressional districts. It is also a bustling city of around 1.4 million inhabitants, making it the 4th largest city of the Philippines in terms of population. It spans a combined but geographically separated land area of 55.8 sq. km. making it also the 2nd largest city in Metro Manila in terms of land area.

Take the LRT Yellow Line and alight at either 5th Avenue, or Monumento Stations. You can also take EDSA-plying buses, which sometimes passes by Monumento area.

In the near future, Caloocan City will be connected to the EDSA MRT-3 line through an expansion project that will eventually connect MRT-3 with LRT Yellow Line 1.

Provincial Buses (from the northern Luzon area)are known to have their main terminals in the Monumento area. The city is also the easiest connection to cities such as Subic. Olongapo. and Baguio.

Small but convenient and very affordable tricycles ply around the city. Just say where you are going and they will bring you as fast as possible. Fares are at the range of PHP 7.00 (for single person payment) to PHP 30.00 (if you want to ride the tricycle on a "special" basis - meaning you and you're companion are the ones that will ride.)

Jeepneys also ply around with their own respective fixed routes. Metro Manila fares of a minimum of PHP 8.00 is applied. The city is geographically divided in to 2 parts, Caloocan City North and South. Taking a tricycle from let's say, Bagong Barrio, is a big no-no among drivers. And besides, it is also not allowed by the local government.
