P2P Bus Services in Metro Manila: A Commuter's Guide | Moneymax

If you’ve been living for years in Metro Manila, you know the horrors of commuting like the back of your hand. The horrible traffic and jam-packed MRT and public buses always make you wonder what sins you have committed to deserve such ordeals. Fortunately, there’s now an easier, faster, safer, and more comfortable alternative: the Point-to-Point or P2P Bus Service.

The Perks of Riding a P2P Bus

Unlike regular buses with multiple stops, P2P buses have a fixed departure schedule and fewer pick-up and drop-off points, enabling commuters to cut travel time. P2P buses also feature convenient amenities like comfortable seats, restrooms, and free Wi-Fi that make getting around Metro Manila a pleasant experience. You wouldn’t mind paying extra for a P2P bus ride because its premium service is worth the higher price compared to MRT and regular buses. It’s also a lot better than losing your precious time and money being stuck in traffic.

However, P2P routes, schedules, and fares are too complicated and confusing for first-timers. Many Filipino commuters aren’t very familiar with the P2P Bus System, as it’s been implemented in the Philippines for a few years now. Be well-informed about your transport options to plan your commutes better. Get started with this handy guide to P2P bus services in Metro Manila.

Final Thoughts

Being a relatively new public transport mode in the Philippines, the P2P bus system is still far from perfect—but it’s a step in the right direction. Using this P2P bus service guide, plan your commutes well to save time and energy. For example, instead of driving all the way to your destination, you can travel faster this way: drive to a mall with a P2P bus station, park your car, and take a P2P bus to your destination. Also, follow the Facebook pages of P2P bus operators to stay updated on any changes in P2P routes, schedules, and fares.
