Commuting in the Philippines might be one of the most dreading things. Traffic is always present in EDSA, C5, España, Commonwealth, and other major roads in and around Metro Manila. That’s why when Department of Transportation (DOTr) launched the point-to-point (P2P) buses in 2016, most of us have experienced a more efficient mode of transportation.
This year, DOTr has a good news for everyone: they are adding 22 bus routes including Pampanga to Bulacan, Cavite to Makati, Parañaque to Manila, and Malabon/Navotas to Pasay.
In a Facebook post on January 11, DOTr said: “In order to provide more efficient and comfortable modes of commuting, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) will open the following routes for point-to-point (P2P) bus service.”
Here are the 22 bus routes that are slated to be added this year:
- Pasig (city proper)-Ortigas
- Pasig (city proper)-Makati
- Las Piñas-Makati
- Taguig (city proper)-Ortigas
- Taguig (city proper)-Makati
- Dasmariñas-Makati (via Daanghari)
- Malolos-North EDSA
- Bocaue/Santa Maria-North EDSA
- Malabon/Navotas-Pasay (via R10)
- NAIA-Sta Rosa, Laguna
- Clark-Malolos, Bulacan
- Clark-Tarlac City, Tarlac
- Clark-San Jose, Nueva Ecija
Operated by DOTr, the premium P2P bus service has direct routes from the terminal to specific drop-off location. It also leaves on time regardless of the number of passengers.
