DOTr launches P2P bus service in Pampanga
Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur Tugade on Friday led the official launching of the first premium point-to-point (P2P) bus service in Pampanga.
The Genesis P2P bus service will ferry passengers coming from Clark International Airport to Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 and vice versa.
Another route, Clark–Trinoma in North EDSA and vice-versa, will also be available.
“The P2P is a very laudable project that must be pushed, pushed, pushed. We started with just four P2P routes and now we have 12,” Tugade said.
The Clark–NAIA route will have stopovers in Robinson’s Galleria and Resorts World Manila, where passengers may be dropped off or picked up staring Sept. 15.
Rely Jalbuna, Genesis Transport Service Inc. operations manager, said Genesis won the public bidding for the 48 franchised lines. He said that even before the bidding, Genesis was the de facto bus link of Clark to other areas.
“Clark and Genesis have been partners for years on a shuttle operation basis. That we won in the bidding for the P2P bus service based at Clark just sealed out a permanent partnership,” he said, as quoted in a Sun Star report.
According to Jalbuna, 10 buses with a capacity of 50 passengers each will be deployed for the new bus service.
The first trip will be at 4:00 a.m. And the last trip will be at 9:00 p.m. for all routes.
Fare is P350 from Clark to NAIA and Resorts World, P300 to Robinson’s Galleria, and P250 to Trinoma.
