Commuting in Naga City is a bit different to Manila, where you are used to taking jeepney to get to any places. Public jeepney is the main mode of transportation in Manila. In fact, you can let a bus pass, but a jeepney is a must.
In Naga City, the king of the road is the motorized tricycle that we only use in Manila in areas not served by jeepneys.
If you're going to any location in Naga City, you just instruct the driver to take you there. You can get to SM City Naga, Naga Coliseum, Naga Cathedral or even the farthest Penafrancia Basilica by flagging a motorized tricycle. Fare rate is only Php 8.00. Because tricycle is the main mode of transportation here, it functions like a public jeepneys. So, expect that it picks up more passengers along the route.
So, how does it work?
As simple as one two three.
One. Flag down a motorized tricycle.
Two. Ride and say your destination, e.g. Basilica, SM, CBT, Naga Cathedral, Crown Hotel, Caceres Street, etc.
Three. Get off the tricycle and pay 8.00.
Note: Drivers charge more if your destination is way too far. When I went to PNR from Naga Land Hotel to buy fare ticket, I was only charged 8 pesos. I just gave the driver 10 pesos and never got the change.
