P2P Bus Experience: Alabang - Cavite Route

Premium Point-to-Point (P2P) Bus Service has been a long convenience to the commuters when it was started last year (2016) or last quarter of 2015 (if I'm not mistaken). The routes that opened last year were: Alabang-Makati Route, Ortigas-Makati Route, North Edsa-Ortigas Route, and North Edsa-Makati Route. 

I already experienced riding in Alabang-Makati route and it was such a great convenience. I worked in Makati before for more than 2 years and it took me 3 hours or more to get there from Cavite, huh? But when I tried the P2P bus, it took me almost 30 minutes from Alabang to Makati + 1 hour travel from Cavite to Alabang. Can you imagine how much time I saved from travelling with those routes? It's very convenient to me!



Good thing! June 4, 2017 when it was announced in GoCavite website that P2P Now Connects Alabang to Cavite. With the partnership of Department of Transportation, LTFRB and MetroExpress Connect, Inc, they opened 2 additional routes: Starmall Alabang - Vista Mall Daang Hari route and Starmall Alabang - Central Mall Dasmarinas route. The first route costs Php 30 and the other one is Php 50. There is 20% discount for PWD, senior and students.



There are fixed departure schedules, which is a good thing. Here's the timetable that I got from them at Starmall Alabang waiting area:


The are only few passengers at that time and most them already took off at Camella Homes Daang Hari and Evia Mall Daang Hari. I noticed that many are unaware of this recent change. I'm saddened with the fact that most Filipinos blame the government about the inefficiency of public transportation. Hence, they don't acknowledge this kind of changes. 😔

This is the look inside the P2P Bus.

How about you? Have you tried to ride on a P2P bus? How was your experience?
