New airport bus service operates between 6AM to 11PM

The administration’s aim to reduce vehicular traffic to terminals of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) gets another major boost with the opening of its latest terminal in Manila.

Located at Robinson’s Place Manila, this will serve as an Ultimate Bus Experience (UBE) hub with operating hours between 6AM to 11PM for the airport bus route that serves Heritage Hotel, Midas Hotel, Hotel Jen,Century Park Hotel, Diamond Hotel, Luneta Hotel, New World Hotel, Pan Pacific Hotel, Bayview Hotel, Manila Pavilion, Manila Hotel and Bayleaf Hotel to NAIA 1, 2 and 3.

“With the support given to us by Robinson's Place Manila, UBE Express can now provide service to the Filipino people especially OFWs by providing quality transportation – convenient, comfortable, and world class quality. Because in UBE Express, we want to give every Filipino an Ultimate Bus Experience,” said Ube Express President Garrie David.

The 24-seater UBE express airport service will use a Mercedes-Benz MCV C 120 Low-Entry model that uses a BlueTec engine that is Euro V compliant, with a low-entry design, PWD compatibility, GPS tracking, a mobile tracking app, radio communications, on-board WiFi, CCTV cameras and e-ticketing technology.

More routes and locations within Metro Manila are planned and will be opened soon.
