Do you have any local travel plans this coming long weekend and for the holiday season? If you’ll be using public transportation, read this first.
Pinoy Commuter Problems
Pinoys have long been resigned to the fact that commuting almost anywhere in the Philippines is such a major hassle. Long lines, no set departure times, needing to go to the terminal just to buy tickets in advance, overbooking (for those with advance reservation systems) and overcrowding during peak season are common experiences for travelers and passengers.
Online Reservations via Biyaheroes
With the holidays just around the corner, it’s good to know that commuters can now enjoy stress-free travels out of town with online bus and boat reservations with Biyaheroes.com. Passengers choose seats for free, claim a variety of freebies, and earn points. Payment options include credit/debit card via Paypal, 7-Eleven, all major banks, and the most common payment centers.
You can book directly at their website at biyaheroes.com.
Biyaheroes charges P50 only (about $1) for bookings below P500 or a 10% service charge above it, but some companies price tickets with the same or even lower fares than walk-ins, making them even cheaper to book online.
Transportation Service Provider Partners
Biyaheroes has partnered with major bus lines in Manila such as JAC Liner for trips to/from Quezon and Marinduque; PARTAS for Abra, Ilocos, La Union, and Baguio via Laoag; and CODA Lines for direct to Sagada, Bontoc, and Banaue trips.
The website also caters inter-provincial bus and boat partners like Lexxus Shuttle for Puerto Princesa to/from El Nido, Sabang (Underground River), and even Port Barton; Bunso Transport which is a transport vessel servicing Coron to/from Mindoro and El Nido; and Davao Metro Shuttle for Tagum to/from Abreeza Mall in Davao.
Having the transportation service taken care of is a big help in enjoying one’s travel experience. We can only hope that Biyaheroes expands its network to include more provinces and other reliable transport providers.
