Traveling from Bulacan to Quezon City is now made easier. Today, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) launched two new routes for their Point-to-Point (P2P) premium buses coming from the Bulacan area to Quezon City. To be specific, the two new P2P bus routes will be from Santa Maria, Bulacan to Trinoma North Avenue in Quezon City and from Robinson's Place Malolos, Bulacan to Trinoma North Avenue, Quezon City.
For those planning to use the P2P bus to travel from Bulacan to Trinoma or vice versa, the service is free today. Similar to other routes, the first trip of the P2P from Bulacan to Trinoma will begin at 5AM with the last bus departing at 8PM. The DOTr says there will be 15 buses plying the route with a fixed schedule of trips that leaves every 30 minutes regardless of passenger count. The bus will then travel directly from terminal to drop-off point without frequent stops. As of writing, the DOTr has not released any information regarding fare prices the new P2P routes.
The premium buses use a cashless system with the reloadable Prime Tap cards. All of the buses air-conditioned and come with a host of features such as Wi-Fi, TV's, and CCTV to name a few. They also have a retractable wheelchair ramp to give PWDs easier access.
Both Bulacan to Trinoma routes help exand the P2P network further. The addition of new routes are expected to help decongest traffic and encourage private vehicle users to take the P2P bus instead. More routes for the P2P bus are currently being planned in Metro Manila and other areas.
