  1. Its good to hear that idea..hope..they can more pick some other place in metro Manila like Quezon city and more..and I hope the price ticket its affordable and fix price.

  2. overpriced!!

  3. too expensive, it’s almost thesame as my fare from manila to baguio! noway! greedy!

  4. Your article only indicated pick-up points.
    Hope you also provide drop-off services.
    I believe the price is reasonable at P300 with the given pick-up/ drop-off points. I travel regularly and use a car rental since it gives me a feeling of security. I tried the airport taxi only once and it was not a good experience.
    Car rental drop off rates range from P695-1,100 for Diamond or Sofitel and P1,150-1,900 for Crowne Plaza or EDSA Shang.
    I know you can devise a system that will include prime locations in the Pasay, Makati, and Ortigas Center area (malls and hotels). Please consider this in your review or conduct a test run.
    Online booking is a welcome idea.
    Hope this project succeeds. Good luck!

  5. The buses should also make stops at or near MRT/LRT stations. like the Ayala and EDSA/Taft station.

  6. Nicca mapaye says:

    Are these buses available only for the passengers?…will there be accomodations for those na susundo o maghahatid, khit 1 person lng?…
