  • List: Bus Terminals in Metro Manila

    Jeeps may be heralded as the quintessential public transport, but buses are still a staple in the Philippines. With over 7,000 buses plying the same routes, it becomes confusing even for the government to keep track. Couple that number with each bus company having their own terminal and creating a list becomes futile.

    Saying a bus will take you from Manila to any point in Luzon, Visayas, or Mindanao (yes, it is possible to get from Manila to Visayas or Mindanao by bus) will entirely depend on where you’re at in Manila. To make it easier, here’s a list of places where you should be for trips you want to take outside the Metro:


    1. Cubao, Quezon City is probably the most sought-after place for anyone wanting to venture outside of Manila. The Araneta Center Cubao Bus Terminal gets packed with people headed south for the holidays (Christmas, Holy Week, and any other long weekend). For those who commute on a regular basis, however, the terminals along EDSA are the most utilized. Baliwag Transit and Victory Liner are two of the most utilized bus companies if you’re headed north of the city, while Philtranco and Superlines are your go-to buses if you want to head south.

    2. Another option for anyone headed north would be the terminals in Sampaloc, Manila. GV Florida has their own terminal here, and can take you as far north as Ilocos. To get there, take the LRT Line 1 or LRT Line 2, getting off at the Doroteo Jose and Recto Stations respectively.

    1. Cubao is perfect for those who live or work in the northern parts of Metro Manila. Southerners, on the other hand, choose to head for Pasay City. Most of the bus companies in Cubao have terminals in Pasay; but the majority of bus companies here have routes going to Laguna or Batangas. The easiest way to get there would be via city buses that are headed for LRT.

    2. Paranaque (Southwest Integrated Bus Terminal). The only centralized bus terminal that’s sanctioned by the government, the Southwest Integrated Bus Terminal has buses that can take you to Cavite and other parts of Batangas. It’s located at the Uniwide Coastal Mall, and can be reached via bus that’s headed for MIA.

    3. Alabang (South Station Transport Terminal). If you’re in the area of Makati or BGC and are headed for the Bicol Region, the South Station Transport Terminal in Alabang, Muntinlupa would be your best bet. It’s the go-to terminal for anyone headed that far south of Luzon. To get there, simply get on a bus headed for Alabang South Station from either Makati or Market! Market!.
