The Land Transportation Franchising (LTFRB) has brought forward the premium bus service P2P (Point to Point) last December 2015. Three years into fulfilling a quality transportation option for several locals has definitely brought convenience to many mass commuters.
From just three routes, the service grew into having 22 routes around the metro. Indeed, the modernization, organization, and comfort promised to riders continue to bolster progress in mass transportation vehicles.
P2P buses charge PHP 80.00 for regular rates, with discounts for students and people with disabilities (PWDs). The Beep card can also be used to pay for the P2P service. It used to operate from 5:00 AM to 8:00 PM all over Manila, but with several routes developed throughout the years, the service has become more flexible with its hours.
UP Town Katipunan to Glorietta 3 (Makati Central Business District)
Since the booming success of the P2P bus service in Manila, a new route has opened from UP Town mall, Katipunan in Quezon City to Makati City’s central business district with Glorietta 3 as the main pick up and drop off point for the city.
The schedule is as follows:
This route not only brings convenience for riders, it has become a more reliable form of transportation for people who work in the busy areas. The Ateneo De Manila University and the University of the Philippines among other universities in Katipunan are found in the vicinity of UP Town Mall. This makes the mall a popular hub for students, bringing more accessibility for people on the go.
From Makati’s central business district, the same level of convenience and accessibility is present for Makati city workers and goers. The pickup and drop off point being in Glorietta 3 makes it easier for city hoppers to get on and off the bus, whether they’re off to run an errand for work or off to school, comfort and suitability are guaranteed.
Comfort, Quality and Premium Commuting at its Finest
Whether you’re after an affordable ride to school, work or to the mall, P2P premium bus service is one of the best options in the metro, aside from the usual Uber and Grab. Consider the PHP 80.00 you will spend to be worth every peso with comfortable seating, an air-conditioned vehicle with enough space for even bikes to fit in and with no stops in between!
This 2018, look forward to more routes opening in and out of Metro Manila. Because commuting doesn’t have to be a stressful and chaotic way to work or school, ride with P2P bus service today!
