In an effort to lessen Manila’s traffic congestion, the government launched the Premium Point-to-point (P2P) Bus Service in March 2015. This move successfully made traveling easier and more comfortable for the commuters within the metro.
From just 3 routes by the last quarter of 2015, the P2P System has expanded to 5 more courses in 2016. These routes include Eton Centris – Glorietta 5, SM North EDSA – Glorietta 5, SM Megamall – SM North EDSA, Trinoma – Glorietta 5, Robinson’s Novaliches – Parksquare Terminal Makati, Robinsons Galleria – Parksquare Terminal Makati, Alabang Town Center – Greenbelt 1, Ayala Malls Southpark – Greenbelt 5.
The Department of Transportation (DOTr), Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), and MetroExpress Connect, Inc. are continuously creating more ways to better the transport infrastructure. With the demand for the premium bus service increasing, the P2P recently opened 2 additional routes which connect Cavite and Alabang road networks. On Thursday, DOTr Assistant Secretary for Transport Mark Richmund De Leon announced introduced the new routes: Starmall Alabang – Vista Mall Daang Hari Bacoor and Starmall Alabang – Central Mall Dasmarinas. De Leon also stated that 10 premium buses will be utilized for the route expansion.
Both routes will operate from 5:00 AM to 8:00 PM, with a departure interval of 15 to 30 minutes. The opening fare for the Alabang-Bacoor route is P50 while the fare for Alabang-Dasmarinas route is P70. There is a 20% discount on regular fares for PWDs, students and senior citizens.
