If you only want to go around the city proper you can ride the Motorela or Rela (it is the Cagayan de Oro’s version of Philippine tricycle).

Jeepney’s conductors in Cagayan are aggressive in picking passengers and they would come across your way and ask you where are you going and would help you of your belongings even though you wont ask for their assistance. If you are in a hurry you will be advised to take a taxi cab because Jeepney’s would take so long to arrive at your destination, they tend to stop every major street intersection to wait for upcoming passengers, and it will surely pissed you off. Taxi’s are all around the city and you won’t be having hard time waiting for them; these taxis are mostly new models, to site some, Avanza, Altis and Toyota.

Buses are available in going out side the city, there are terminals in different places, for people going to Bukidnon, Agora terminal is their starting point, and going to Iligan or some places is there Bulua terminal is in service.

The seaport in Cagayan is one of the busiest ports in the country, it is located at Macabalan. There are regular ferry trips to/from Cagayan de Oro to major cities in the Visayas region and Manila.
