  • Lag alag


  • The first integrated bus terminal for provincial buses in Metro Manila which aims to ease traffic in the metropolis is scheduled to open on August 6, 2013. The initial integrated terminal is built for buses that ply the routes of Batangas-Manila and Cavite-Manila. After August 6, 2013, these buses will no longer be allowed to take their usual routes from their respective origins beyond the location of the integrated terminal designated for them.

    Location of Integrated Bus Terminal for Batangas & Cavite Buses


    The bus depot for the two provinces of CALABARZON is located at Coastal Mall which is situated at the corner of Aguinaldo Blvd and NAIA Rd Ext in Paranaque City. Aguinaldo Blvd which is also known as Coastal Rd is the extension of Roxas Blvd. Similar integrated bus terminals are set to open in Alabang and North EDSA. Alabang Integrated Bus Terminal will serve buses from other provinces south of Manila, e.g., Laguna, Quezon, etc. Meanwhile, North EDSA Integrated Bus Terminal will be the home of buses from provinces north of Metro Manila such as Bulacan, Pampanga, Bataan, etc.

    How To Get To Coastal Mall Integrated Bus Terminal


    Via EDSA - Just ride a bus with "MIA" or "NAIA" sign. You can take this bus from any point in EDSA. In some cases, you might need to take two bus rides if you don't find a NAIA bus in your area. Drop off at Coastal Mall. You use this route from any of the following locations: Novaliches, Fairview, Munoz, Cubao, Megamall, Guadalupe, etc.

    Via LRT - From any station, get off the train at EDSA Station and ride a "NAIA" bound bus and alight at Coastal Mall.

    Via MRT - From any station, alight at Taft Station and take "NAIA" bound bus and alight at Coastal Mall.

    How To Commute From Integrated Terminal To Different Locations In Metro Manila


    If you are having a problem in commuting to your destination after getting off the provincial bus in Coastal Mall, please read the newly created post entitled Commute Guide From South West Terminal To Different Locations. You can click that link or go here. Listed there are locations of terminals of jeepneys, city buses and UV Express headed outside of Coastal Mall and South West Integrated.

    Affected Passengers


    All passengers from Batangas and Cavite should alight at Coastal Mall. From there, they can take another bus or jeepney on the way to their destinations. They can take a bus bound for "Monumento", "Cubao", "Fairview", etc and drop off at their destination or at MRT Taft Staion/LRT EDSA Station. From these stations, ride a train and alight at station nearer to your destination. If you want to know where to ride a city bus after alighting a provincial bus at Coastal Mall, please go to South West Integrated Terminal & City Buses Coastal Mall Station.

    Affected Buses


    For years, terminals of these buses in Metro Manila were found in different locations in Pasay and Manila areas. Gil Puyat aka Buendia in Taft Ave for one had been popular location of many terminals for these provincial buses. Lawton and Sta Cruz in Manila were also known as bastion for these passenger liners.

    Long Term Benefits


    According to MMDA, volume of traffic along major roads of Metro Manila will be decreased once the three big bus integrated terminals are completed. The available spaces gained from the removal of provincial buses will be used by fewer buses and motorists. Thus, significantly reducing traffic.

    Although this major change in commuting brings huge inconveniences for our fellow citizens who travel to their works from their respective provincial towns, colossal benefits for the majority in terms of fast and smooth commute and drive within our metropolis are achieved.

    Furthermore, numbers of vehicular accidents that involved mostly buses will decreased significantly. In the process, we ease the traffic and save lives.

    5. @ Kristelle Gazmen. Ang mga signboards po sa harap ng mga bus ay may mga secondary sign ng iba pang lugar o syudad na dinadaanan ng ruta nila. Ang maipapayo ko po ay sumakay kyo sa bus na kung saan ay dadaan eto sa Lipa. Mangyari din po na makipagugnayan kyo sa help desk ng South West Integrated Terminal.

    6. @ Ed. Ang available pa lang po ngayon ay ang mga air-conditioned UV Express AUV. Matatagpuan nyo po ang terminal nila sa harap ng main entrance ng Coastal Mall na nasa kanto ng Aguinaldo Blvd aka Coastal Rd at NAIA Rd Ext. Kung wala po kyo makita ay mag-antay lang po kyo kasi paisa isa ang dating nila. Kagagaling ko lang po dun para tingnan ang sitwasyon kaya asahan nyo po ang impormasyon na sinabi ko.

    18. Hi. I don't read Tagalog so can't understand any of the comments. Can anyone please tell me whether all buses to Batangas pier now go from the new terminal or whether you can still go from Cubao? Also which bus companies now do this route? BLTB apparently no longer exists and the JAM website is down. I will be coming from Olongapo and hope to make a connection without having to go from one Manila terminal to another myself as I have never been in the city before. This will be in February 2014.

    19. @ Colin Marquard. Hello, I have checked last month if the buses bound for Batangas from their terminal in Cubao still operate. I have seen Batangas buses still serve commuters from Cubao Kamuning area. I think authorities are lenient on the imposition of this city buses ordinance. But February 2014 is another thing. Please do contact me weeks before your arrival in Manila en route to Batangas. There might be major changes like strict implementation of this law on provincial buses. Here to help. Thanks.
