The SPOT.ph Guide to Metro Manila's P2P Buses

Your comprehensive cheat sheet to all the available routes.

(SPOT.ph) The Premium Point-to-Point Bus Service was launched in 2016 in an effort to convince people to leave their cars at home and ease the traffic congestion happening every day along EDSA. The Point-to-Point (P2P) bus service is a public utility vehicle sub-category that offers commuters another safe, comfortable, and reliable mode of transportation. It allows shorter travel time, as buses depart on a fixed schedule and travel directly from the terminal to the drop-off point.

It first started as a holiday project in partnership with Fröehlich Tours in January 31, 2016 under a special permit issued by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board. It then expanded to four more routes by April 25 of the same year.

The non-P2P commute involves...hailing a bus bound for Alabang/Pacita/San Pedro in front of Ayala EDSA. You can sit down, if you're lucky. Once in Alabang, ride a jeepney via Alabang-Zapote Road and get down at Alabang Town Center. This will take you about two hours depending on the traffic and a fare of P40 to P50. A cab ride, on the other hand, will cost you P300 to P400. That's excluding toll fees.

Bus Company: Froelich Tours
One-way Fare: P65 (Standard), P50 (Discounted)
Travel Time: 30 minutes
Availability: Monday to Friday

The non-P2P commute involves...crossing three segments of footbridges and praying to the heavens that you can actually hail a bus. This is, after all, North EDSA, and a lot of people are waiting to get on the same bus as you. The two points are not really that far, but expect the bus driver to stop at a very corner possible to squeeze in more passengers.
