Considering the actual situation and geographic location of Dasmariñas, we shall focus on land based mode-the municipality's road network.
The town is reached from Manila through the Emilio Aguinaldo Highway from the north. THe same highway links Dasmariñas to Tagaytay City to the south. Another major highway is the Carmona-Ternate road passing along PalaPala and Langkaan.
Other major road links are:
1. Salitran-Molino road going to Bacoor and Zapote
2. Sabang-Imus road going to Binakayan
3. Amuntay-Puerto Azul road going to Governor's Drive
As to internal linkages, the roads providing mobility and access within the municipality are barangay, municipal and provincial roads.
In few years, the LRT 1(Light Rail Transit) will be available to commuters in Dasmariñas. This is believed to cut the travel time to Manila in a metter of minutes and will also provide much comfort/convinience and will also boost more economic development in this future city. The transit would be in full operation in the future.
Communication & Information
Dasmariñas rely upon agencies for their communication needs. These are the Bureau of Posts, the Bureau of Telecommunications, the RCPI, the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT), Digital Telecommunications (DIGITEL), GLOBE Telecom, ISLACOM, etc.Nationwide newspapers circulate daily in the town. Radio and television channels are recieved clearly in the area. Cable television provider (DASCA Cable) is also available.
With its first of its kind in our country, Dasmariñas has its own channel(Channel 47) available on DASCA Cable. Here, upcoming events, projects, announcements, finished projects, etc. are reached out to the Dasmariñas residents. The town also has its own newspaper, Usaping Bayan, the official newspaper of Dasmariñas.
The town has the rightful claim to be tagged as "the internet hub of Cavite" due to the presence of numerous Internet Service Providers (ISP) in Dasmariñas. Computer Centers and Internet Cafes,which provides access to the information super highway, are lined along the busy avenues of the town.
Power and Electrification
The main source of power supply is the National Power Corporation (NPC) with a substation at San Agustin. Power is distributed by the Manila Electric Company (MERALCO) having taken over FCECI since March 1985.
