NAIA 1-2-3-4 Shuttle Bus Updates

  • This is the sequel of our post on NAIA Shuttle Bus entitled "NAIA 1-2-3 Shuttle Bus: Easy Way To Get To & From NAIA Terminals". If you haven't read it yet, you need to do so because it contains the information supplemented by this second part, such as, how to get to the NAIA Shuttle Bus Terminal in Pasay Rotunda.

    NAIA Shuttle Bus at Genesis Bus Terminal
    I needed to publish this second part because there are changes on NAIA Shuttles that if not disseminated accordingly will bring confusions to commuters. One of the major changes is the new look of NAIA Shuttle Bus that serves commuters from Genesis Bus Terminal in Pasay Rotunda to Terminal 3 of NAIA. You might keep on waiting for a NAIA Shuttle arrival not knowing that the bus has already arrived. Added to that the fact that the NAIA Shuttle from Pasay Rotunda has no signage of its destination on its windshield.
    NAIA Shuttle arrives at Genesis Bus Terminal
    If you're not familiar or if it's your first time to commute from Pasay Rotunda to Terminal 3 via NAIA Shuttle, you wouldn't know which one of the buses at the bus terminal is the one bound for NAIA-3. That's because the NAIA Shuttle Bus has now transformed into an all-white colored bus in outer body with HM lettering plus 2 digit number painted in dark color. Gone is the corporate lettering of NAIA 1-2-3 Domestic Loop that commuters got to read as soon as they saw the NAIA Shuttle bus back then. So, folks, here's the new look of NAIA Shuttle Bus that you get to see at Genesis Bus Terminal in Pasay Rotunda. Above are the latest photos of NAIA Shuttle Bus taken at Genesis Bus Terminal in Pasay Rotunda on July 27, 2012. Note: After alighting at Terminal 3, you will transfer to another newly added NAIA Shuttle for Terminal 4-2-1, in that order. Yes, there's another new fleet of NAIA Shuttle in Terminal 3. Read on to learn more.

    In this article are answers to these questions:


    What is the new NAIA Shuttle Bus that takes passengers to and from NAIA 1,2,3 and 4?
    What are the schedules of NAIA Shuttles?
    How do shuttles get to each terminal, which one comes first?
    Can I now take a NAIA Shuttle from Terminal 1 even if I'm not an arriving passenger?
    How do we recognize a NAIA Shuttle?
    Are all NAIA Shuttles dedicated to Terminal 4?
    Where is the NAIA Shuttle from Pasay Rotunda headed after dropping passengers at NAIA-3?
    Where can I get off the shuttle from NAIA-3 aside from Pasay Rotunda?
    How much is the fare of a NAIA Shuttle ride?


    My goal is to bring you information you need to know in getting to and from each of NAIA terminals. There are factors you need to remember in riding a shuttle from one terminal to another the most important of which is don't miss your terminal destination because when you do, you might get late for your flight and that's the last thing you want to happen. It happens from time to time. I have witnessed one when I boarded the NAIA Shuttle Van while documenting the flow of shuttles for this update. As soon as we left Terminal 1, a lady asked another passenger where's the location of Terminal 2. The man told her that he boarded the shuttle at Terminal 2. It occurred that the lady didn't alight when the van made the stopover at Terminal 2 and now she would have to stay on the van as it drops passengers at Terminal 4, Terminal 3, Terminal 4 again before going back to Terminal 2. That's quite a long journey to your terminal. Tip: Ask the driver, especially of the shuttle van, what's Terminal he's just made the stop over. They always assumed all passengers are familiar with NAIA terminal locations.


    What is the new NAIA Shuttle Bus that takes passengers to and from NAIA 1,2,3 & 4?



    EGC Transport, a newly added fleet of NAIA Shuttle now serves commuters and airline passengers. It takes passengers from one terminal to another. Upon arrival to Terminal 3 from EDSA, you can ride this bus. If this bus has not yet arrived, then you can ride a shuttle van. Read the types of NAIA Shuttles and how to recognize them. In these photos is the ECG Transport Bus:

    EGC Transport Express - a new NAIA Shuttle Bus
    At NAIA Terminal 3 loading and unloading area for passengers bound for Terminal 1,2 and 4, EGC Transport Bus NAIA Shuttle parks to drop and load passengers. First Stop from Terminal 3 is Terminal 4, but you need to inform the conductor or the driver that your destination is Terminal 4 for him to drop you at pedestrian crossing opposite the Domestic Terminal.

    Passengers riding EGC Bus at Terminal 2




    As you can see in this photo taken from the inside of EGC Transport, the bus parks at Airport Shuttle waiting area of NAIA Terminal 2 where passengers bound for Terminal 1,3 and 4 are waiting. After passengers bound for Terminal 2 have alighted, it's their turn to board the bus. The crew of EGC Transport Express will load passengers' luggage to help them out.


    EGC Transport unloads passengers at NAIA-1


    The EGC Transport Express NAIA Shuttle Bus drops passengers outside departure lobby of NAIA Terminal 1. It will not pick up passengers there. Unlike NAIA Shuttle van that I got to board even if I was not an arriving passenger. Please read Can I now take a NAIA Shuttle from Terminal 1 even if I'm not an arriving passenger?



    EGC Bus waits for arriving passengers at NAIA-1
    After all passengers have alighted at departure of NAIA-1, EGC NAIA Shuttle Bus goes down to the area of "NAIA Shuttle Service to Terminal 2,3 & 4" outside Arrival Lobby which is located to your right as you get outside Arrival Lobby. There's a sign that reads NAIA Shuttle Service To Terminal 2, 3 & 4. You can't ride at this area if you're not an arriving passenger. You can ride a NAIA Shuttle van outside departure area which is upstairs.




    What are the schedules of NAIA Shuttles?



    NAIA Shuttle Van arrives at NAIA-1 Departure

    The first trip of NAIA Shuttle from Genesis Bus Terminal in EDSA-Taft Pasay Rotunda to NAIA Terminal 3 is at 6 am. It serves the public up to 10 pm daily. The shuttle buses and vans that serve passengers to and from Terminal 1,2,3 and 4 start their operation at 6 am up to 2 am.





    How do shuttles get to each terminal, which one comes first?



    This is crucial information for those who would take a NAIA Shuttle van. They don't have specific destination. For example, you board a shuttle van at Terminal 2 thinking that it gets to Terminal 3. To your surprise, the van takes the direction to Terminal 1. Tip: When riding NAIA Shuttle van, always ask the driver about where he's headed. Please read separate post about this, click here.

    Sign of Shuttle Service for arriving passenger at NAIA-1
    EGC Transport Express has specific route. From Terminal 3 it drops passengers bound for Terminal 4 at pedestrian crossing opposite the Terminal. You must inform the conductor that your destination is Terminal 4, if that's the case. Next is Terminal 2. From Terminal 2, it goes directly to Terminal 1 departure area to drop passengers, then it goes to the arrival area to pick up arriving passengers. Next to Terminal 1 is Terminal 4. You must inform the crew you're alighting there. Please read Are all NAIA Shuttles dedicated to Terminal 4?. Last destination is Terminal 3 where the bus starts the driving loop again.



    Can I now take a NAIA Shuttle from Terminal 1 even if I'm not an arriving passenger?



    You can not ride NAIA Shuttle at Departure of  NAIA-1
    If you have just accompanied a flying relative or friend, you can not board a NAIA Shuttle. It's no longer allowed. This is an update as of June 27, 2013. As on the morning of that day, I've tried to hop in and was told only "connecting flight passengers" are allowed. To get to MRT-3 Taft or LRT-1 EDSA station, ride a public bus at loading/unloading area few meters away from Terminal Bldg. Use the stair and go down to Arrival level. Cross the street and wait for a bus to arrive.



    How do we recognize a NAIA Shuttle?



    NAIA Shuttle Van has NAIA lettering and destination sign
    Obviously, you can easily recognize EGC Transport Express. But what if the bus hasn't arrived yet. If you're in a hurry, you can ride the NAIA Shuttle Van. Since the van ia a Toyota vehicle, you might mistake other motorist car for the NAIA Shuttle. To avoid that, just look for a Toyota van with NAIA logo on the front and on both sides of driver's seat. There's also a sign on the windshield that reads "Terminal 1,2,3 Domestic 4".




    Are all NAIA Shuttles dedicated to Terminal 4?



    EGC Bus drops passengers at Terminal 4 roadside


    No, in a sense that they don't make a stopover at Terminal 4 when there's no passengers that tell them to do so. Even if a NAIA Shuttle comes from Terminal 2 or Terminal 1 and it traverses Domestic Road lane that touches Terminal 4 ground, it won't enter the Domestic Terminal if no one is alighting there.


    Passengers from T-1 & T-2 can alight at Terminal 4


    So, if you're an arriving passenger at Terminal 4 headed to Terminal 3, expect to wait longer than ordinary. You are lucky if by chance a passenger on-board a shuttle from Terminal 1 or 2 is alighting as you get out of the old Manila Domestic Airport. Otherwise, just take a cab which are ample outside the terminal.




    Where is the NAIA Bus from Pasay Rotunda headed after NAIA-3 drop-off?



    NAIA Shuttle Bus Stop is located next to Star Cruise Bldg
    The NAIA Shuttle Bus from Pasay Rotunda to Terminal 3, after dropping passengers at NAIA-3 unloading area, goes directly to its Bus Stop in Newport City to drop passengers bound for Resort World Manila and other destinations there. It doesn't pick up passengers because there are other NAIA-3 Shuttles at the loading area. Commuters from Newport City going to MRT/LRT lines can ride the bus at Newport City bus stop. Read details on the separate post, go to How To Commute To Newport City & Resort World Manila.




    Where can I get off the shuttle from NAIA-3 aside from Pasay Rotunda?



    Unloading areas are posted in NAIA-3 Loading Bay
    You can alight at strategic locations along the route between NAIA Terminal 3 and Bus Terminal in Pasay Routunda where MRT/LRT lines are located. First unloading is at Tramo corner Andrews Ave before traffic lights of Aurora Blvd aka Tramo. Second unloading area is at Baclaran. Just inform the driver that you're alighting there. Now for those who have reserved a room at Heritage Hotel prior to their arrival, you can also get off the NAIA Shuttle Bus from Terminal 3 right in front of Heritage Hotel. This unloading area is also good if you want to transfer to a taxi. It saves a lot of money to take a cab at Heritage Hotel than at the airport while it's not convenient to take one at Pasay Rotunda, not to mention the safety issue. Next to Heritage Hotel stop is Genesis Bus Terminal, although in my experience last time, the driver had allowed quick unload before Taft, albeit, he rushed and pressured the passengers to move real quick.



    How much is the fare of a NAIA Shuttle ride?



    NAIA Shuttle fare is Php 20 flat rate
    The cost of riding a NAIA Shuttle is Php 20 as of this writing. You must pay every time you ride a shuttle, i.e., pay Php 20 upon riding NAIA Shuttle from EDSA-Taft to Terminal 3, pay Php 20 when you ride a shuttle from Terminal 3 to Terminal 2, pay another Php 20 when you ride a shuttle from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 and so on.


    Hope this update on NAIA Shuttles answers questions that might boggling your mind. Another reason I've created this is to answer questions asked in the comment section of the post "NAIA 1-2-3 Shuttle Bus: Easy Way To Get To & From NAIA Terminals" by commuters, flying & arriving passengers and those who accompanied relatives or friends in leaving the country. And that's what I exactly did.

    9. This particular article of this blogger offers the most detailed information about airport shuttle. Nowhere in this planet earth AIRPORTS can you find anything close to this very detailed work of Mr. Lagalag. I frequently travel in and out of US and Philippines and this article is of great help. If only this article will come out in a pocket sized booklet it would be a survival guide to commuting in the most densely populated place in the world. Thanks to MMDA for keeping our roads a great place to park--cars are not moving as if parked on the major highways. Well at least there's an option given by this blogger.

      ReplyDelete
    10. @ Amado. Thank you po for you heart warming comment. You are absolutely right in your observation on our major highways. I think the government should really put all plans and "drawings" into actions that can have surprising results.

      ReplyDelete
    11. Mr. Lagalag, if the EGC bus drops off the passengers in front of NAIA 1 departure area, which way I will go if I want to go to the NAIA 1 arrival area? Let's just say I have an arriving relative to fetch. Thank you very much.

      ReplyDelete
    12. @ Frances. The arrival area is downstairs. But it's restricted, only arriving passengers have access there. That means you can't ride EGC Shuttle from NAIA-1 if you're fetching an arriving passenger.

      The best thing to do is to take a NAIA Shuttle Van outside departure area. Ask your arriving relatives to exit at departure or tell them to use the stair to get to departure frontage once they exit arrival area.

      I always update how things are run as far as NAIA Shuttle is concern. At this time, that's the situation at NAIA-1.

      If things change, I will create a post to inform commuters and airline passengers. Make sure you're subscribed. :)

    13. I will be flying out and back via T-2. I will try taking the bus from T-3 to T-2. So correct me if I'm wrong, from T-3, the bus will go to T-1 (departure), then down to arrival, then to T-2 (arrival), then take stairs to T-2 departure area?

      How long would it take for the bus to travel from T-3 to T-2?

      Thanks. BTW great post and keep the good posts flowing.

      EGC Shuttle Bus goes directly to T-2 from T-3, so it's faster if you take that one. NAIA Shuttle vans don't have specific route, sometimes they go to T-1 first, sometimes to T-2 first. So, my advice is to ask the driver. Yes, just take the stairs in T-2 to get to its departure entrance.

      How long would it take for the bus to travel from T-3 to T-2?

      Depends on traffic situation By EGC bus, around 20 to 25 minutes.

      BTW great post and keep the good posts flowing.

      Thank you so much. Please share DirectionsOnWeb to others.

    15. just got back to cebu 2 days ago from a 5 days stay in manila. my guide in going around MM was my android phone with offline map installed. of course the maps couldn't tell me how to get around, only where i was. and your guides came in handy, most especially your guide on commuting to and from NAIA T3. in fact i lost my way when i first flew in because i was still expecting it would be the domestic terminal i would be arriving to.

    39. Flying out of terminal 3 . Will be in baclaran church. Where exactly does NAIA shuttle stop there? We need to be at the terminal @ 1025. Thanks

      ReplyDelete
    40. @ ChaiFaub. It stops to unload passengers along Roxas Blvd bus stop near the frontage of Redemptorist Church. Please observe loading/unloading rules there and go to the proper area. Wait for the bus and as soon as passengers alighted, board the bus and tell the driver that you are flying passenger bound for NAIA-3. Please have ample time allowance because the bus will park at its terminal in Pasay Rotunda and you might transfer to another one. You don't want to be late on your flight so have spare time. Hope this helps you.

    41. Hi Lag alag, 24hrs ba ang operation nang mga Airport Taxi from NAIA-1? I'll be arriving in NAIA-1 via Delta at 12:15am, mag taxi sana ako from airport to five star bus terminal in Pasay. And also, meron pa kaya bukas na money changer sa arrival area nang past 12mn in NAIA-1? Thanks in advance for your advise. Your blog is such an informative and helpful site. More power.

    44. Thank so much for this Lag alag! , , You have said that it is only by chance that we can ride the shuttle bus if we will start at Terminal 4, are there other way of transport from T4 to T3 other than a taxi cabs and the airport shuttle buses? or is it just ok to walk from T4 to T3? Thank you so much once again!

      ReplyDelete
    45. @ inthelandofzmiles. Hi, you are welcome. There is another way and that is the 2 jeepney rides. You can take a jeepney with "Baclaran" sign along Domestic Road. It will turn left on Airport Road. Get off the jeepney before it takes the bridge that crosses the river there. Cross the road. You will immediately see, just before the bridge, a jeepney terminal bound for "NAIA 3". You must first buy a token before you ride the jeep being filled up. Before the jeep leaves, they will collect tokens from the passengers. Ask the driver to drop you off at the unloading area nearest to NAIA 3. Please take note that this is good only if you don't have heavy luggage and if you're not in a hurry. But if your next flight which originates at T-3 is immediate, cab will be much better. It takes longer time to reach NAIA-3 by taking the 2 jeepney rides. Use only this alternate rides if you have ample of time. Hope my directions help you.

    48. Thank you very much; your guides have been really helpful. However, when my sister and I arrived at NAIA 3 on Jan 3 and Jan 7 respectively, the Php20 shuttle wasn't available, and this (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Ckf5AXROw3g/UBTnXpylxRI/AAAAAAAADJQ/Kbmf2WICfB0/s320/naia%2Bshuttle%2Bunloading.png) was covered up. The guards weren't sure if it was just temporary. Any news on this? :)

      ReplyDelete
    49. @ water-bottles. Oh this is the first time I heard about that and I haven't heard anything yet since. I think it's just temporary because I don't think airport authorities will let passengers experience prolonged inconveniences. It'll be fix I'm pretty sure :)

    57. Hi Mr Lag alag...my flight with ZA/AA at terminal 4 but they give me this direction link through my email how to commute to T4:
      http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=206480390321573713148.0004cbc310138f58f5155

      I find this direction is different with yours, what do you think about this Mr. Lag alag?

      ReplyDelete
    58. @ terus jalan dan makan. LOL. Firstly, they gave you "walking direction". Second, the end point is wrong. If you followed that you will end up in different location. But it passes by T4, alright.

      Here's a head up. Google Map direction is not that accurate when used in Metro Manila. I have tried it many times. Like it suggests a tram route from Point A and then tells you to walk 2 to 3 kilometers to your destination (Point B) when there's a bus ride from Point A to Point B.

      Having said that, I believe that seeking direction at Google Map in western countries like United States or developed nations in Asia like Japan is extremely reliable. Well, what can I say? This is Philippines - a third world country. This is based on personal observation and opinion only :)

      ReplyDelete
    59. Mr. Lag alag...agree with you, still my faith "your post is the best for me!!!" So continue to read it again, again and again. Dont let their email make me get lost.LOL. Thank you so much!

    61. I guess someone forgot to mention to you that the whole 'ban this' thing stopped being funny months ago. Now it's just a sign you can't think up anything intelligent to add to the conversation.

    62. Most limos already have twwo exit doors and tempered safety glass that will break easily with a break out tool ! The problem will be with the intoxicated passengers opening them up and falling out. Most modern cars lock the doors as soon as the car is in gear, cchild door locks are also a problem! I propose a law to put smoke detectors and glass break out tools in every coMmercial passenger vehicle. Smoke detectors would provide an early warning system and would be inexpensive. Any upstanding operator would already have a fire extinguisher and first aid kit in their vehicles.

    63. Hi! Thanks for sharing your articles. I have read the 2 parts on this topic and I just want to clarify some things. I will be arriving with my senior citizen mom at T2 at 6am on August 2. We will be bringing with is a total of 4 big luggage plus 2 small ones as carry-on. We have a connecting flight at T3 at 12 noon. Does that mean we need to take the SHUTTLE VAN from T2 to T3 (and make sure to ask the driver about destination)? Will we have no problem loading our luggage? Tumutulong naman yung driver di ba?

      ReplyDelete
    64. @ mikay. Yes. Especially in your case with those heavy pieces of luggage. You should ride the NAIA Shuttle van that goes directly to T3 from T2. Don't ride a bus that goes first to T1 before heading back to T3 as it may cause you being late. Yes, ask the driver if he's headed to T3 then ask him to help you load your luggage. They normally do that (loading passengers' luggage).

    66. My suggestion for you so that the readers can easily digest what you have written here is also do it graphically (by using arrows and symbols on a simple map) to prevent confusion. Anyway, thumbs up for the work! We appreciate it!

    67. @ dave dexter. Thank you so much for your suggestion. Hope I can find time to do that. One reason you find it in text is for search engines so that every time a query is made for example in Google search, search results feed the information needed to the users. Your comment really boosts my spirit. Many thanks.

    68. Hi, how long does the shuttle takes from T3 to T2? where is the exact location of the shuttle at T3? I'll arrive at T3 at 5.30 am and will be having connecting flight at T2 at 9 am. Do i have enough time to ride the shuttle or i just ride a cab instead? thank you

    69. @ anna gunawan. Sorry for late reply. Depends on traffic, 20 to 30 minutes or more. Outside Arrival. Yes, I think you have enough time.

    70. Hi Lag alag, I'll be fetching 2 relatives that will be arriving on the same day, one at T1 and then T3. What is the best way to get from T1 to T3? Can we take the shuttle bus or van? But from what I understand on your post a non-flying passenger isn't allowed to take the shuttle anymore. Thank you.

    71. @ bd27dfaa-5b78-11e3-a697-000bcdca4d7a. Yes po, non-flying passengers are not allowed. You can opt for cab outside departure level. It's more convenient.

    72. This may sound like a stupid question, but how to get from NAIA 1 Arrival Extension Area to departure level? Thanks po.

      ReplyDelete
    73. @ bd27dfaa-5b78-11e3-a697-000bcdca4d7a. I am sure there are some ramp/lift/escalator there going to departure level. Kindly tell your guests to see if they can find signs that lead to departure. Or they can seek assistance from airport officers. Hope this helps.

    74. Hi Lag alag - Thanks for the very helpful tips and instructions you've been posting over here.. ( I wish you have a facebook account for this too).

      meanwhile, i have a somewhat irrelevant to directions in reaching a terminal from another. Instead, as i hope to arrive at NAIA 4 from NAIA 1 this coming Thursday (night time) -- will I be able to stay inside the terminal building (NAIA 4) as I await my connecting flight to the Visayas on the following day (first flight next morning departure)??

      ReplyDelete
    75. @ Android Jim. Thanks for the compliment. I am sorry to inform you that Terminal 4 is not 24-hours, so you can not stay there to pass the time and wait until morning. NAIA Terminal 1 is open 24-hours. The best thing to do is to talk to the officer of check-in counter at Terminal-1 and ask them if you can stay there until 3 and a half hour before your connecting flight at T-4. Just tell them of your itinerary, I think it's allowed but I am not 100% sure. Nevertheless, it's no harm in asking. That said, please make sure that you arrive at T-4 3 hours before your departure time. Hope this answers your question.

    80. Dear Lag alag,

      Android Jim here -- thanks again for the info and it really helped.

      On actual events that happened, i have the following to add:

      The shuttle service from NAIA1 to NAIA4 (old domestic terminal) was quite a surprise.

      First, I was surprised that it was FREE. Perhaps, because it was Christmas season, or better, if the service is now declared/decided to be free for travellers. Along with other transit passengers on board, we decided to give the driver a gift of P50 each (we were prepared to pay the P20, but P50 is nothing compared to the service and ease with a courteous and helpful driver as a bonus), not only because it was christmas, but we thought it was just fitting for the very courteous and helpful driver of the shuttle who took us to our destination quicker than we expected.
      Secondly, as he took the inside route along the perimeter of the airports entering NAIA2's inner corridors where only airport vehicles are allowed, it was as if we were given a tour of the inside part of the airports that is not commonly available to the public. And so, from NAIA 1 to NAIA 4, after passing through NAIA 2, it only took just about 10 mins (with free "sightseeing" of the inner sights of the airports)!

      I would recommend that for anyone who's arriving from one terminal and proceeding to another, taking the shuttle service is really a better option compared to taking a taxi or any other mode of transport from one NAIA terminal to another.

      On staying the night at NAIA4, I am glad to write this feedback that one can stay inside the check-in area from evening till morning to await one's early morning flight.

      While there are no available services such as food and other comforts that other terminals have, at NAIA4 the basic facilities/amenities are available such as the clean toilets and waiting areas where some can sit and wait till morning.

      And while keeping one's luggages and belongings safe is still a personal responsibility, one can feel safer with the presence of several security details whose duty is inside the waiting area. It would have been nice to take a nap, but with the TV on, it's not that easy to take that much-needed sleep.

      Regardless, I got what I wished for. Perhaps, it was not as comfortable as one would wish for, but NAIA 4 is far different from the old domestic terminal of the past...

    81. @ Android Jim. Wow! that's good news, sir. Thank you so much for sharing what you have experienced with NAIA Shuttles. Hope that these valuable bits of information will be read by our readers. The one about Terminal 4 allowing passengers to stay the night is news to me. Very interesting. That's quiet an improvement as its one of their hotline officers that told me about the old policy. At any rate, these are all good news for flying passengers. Again, thank you for sharing.
