P2P BUS CLARK & MANILA: Schedule, Stops & Fares

One of the best things that happened for travelers from Metro Manila and Central Luzon is the launch of the Premium Point-to-Point (P2P) Bus service from Manila to Clark Airport.

Clark International Airport is the fastest growing gateway in the country, and airlines have been constantly adding new flights that fly into and out of it. This somehow addresses the congestion problem that has been plaguing Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) for years.

     

Direct bus trips to Clark from Manila are not new. PHILTRANCO has been operating this route for years, albeit with only five trips per day. But the P2P buses provide more options and pick up and drop off passengers from all NAIA Terminals as well as a few key stops like Resorts World Manila, Robinsons Galleria (Ortigas), and Trinoma. These buses are also more comfortable, with fewer seats, bigger legroom, and working wi-fi.

These P2P buses ply two Clark routes: one originating and terminating at NAIA Terminal 3, and the other originating and terminating at TRINOMA.

 

Bus Stops in Manila

Here are the exact locations of the pick-up and drop-off spots of P2P buses n Manila. NOTE that the NAIA 2 and NAIA 1 stops are for DROP-OFF ONLY. You can’t board the bus from there. If you’re coming from NAIA Terminals 1, 2, or 4, you will have to take a cab or Uber to Terminal 3 (Bay 14).

  • NAIA 3. Bay 14 at the Arrival area. PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF.
  • NAIA 2. Bay 20 at the Arrival area. DROP-OFF ONLY!
  • NAIA 1. At the Departure Curbside. DROP-OFF ONLY!
  • Resorts World Manila. There is a bus stop close to the Valet Counter, just next to the Casino Entrance. PICK-UP AND DROP OFF.
  • Robinsons Galleria (Ortigas). At the driveway EDSA side. PICK UP AND DROP OFF.
  • Trinoma. P2P Terminal along EDSA, close to MRT North Station.

Important Notes:

  • The total travel time varies depending on traffic. To be safe, allot 3-4 hours. Based on experience, the total travel time is around 2.5 hours. Note that this was on a weekday late afternoon/early evening. We left Clark Airport at 4pm, passed by Trinoma at 5:47pm, and reached Resorts World Manila at 6:25pm. If it’s done the other way around at the same time, I’m pretty sure it will be much, much longer.
  • These buses WILL NOT stop to pick up or drop off passengers at any place other than the designated spots. Do not try to alight elsewhere.
  • The Ortigas departure times vary depending on Manila traffic. You might be in for a bit (or a lot) of waiting time.
  • If you’re trying to catch a flight, allow some lead time. Be at the airport at least 2 hours before a domestic flight or 3 hours for international. Duration of check-in processes can be unpredictable, especially at the Immigration counters where queues can be long. Better safe than left by the plane.

    Thank you for this post. I have been looking everywhere for the most convenient way to travel from NAIA T3 to Angeles City. I think this is it.

    It would be helpful if it can be shown where exactly in Clark Airport one can wait for the buses that go to Trinoma. (The map you provided is vague about it.) A lot of tourists exiting the airport to get to Manila get scammed by people who want them to ride their crappy overpriced jeepneys and FXs.

    In my experience 2 years ago, I specifically asked a uniformed airport employee where the P2P bus going to Trinoma is located. I was told to just go with the barkers and was led to an “aircon” FX that blew hot air. (I guess that’s more than enough evidence of connivance between the 2 groups.) I later on learned that the P2P bus stop was just a few meters away from where I asked and there was in fact one waiting when I exited the airport. Instead of riding to Trinoma in comfort, I ended up riding a crappy FX to outside of the city and then had to catch a Mnaila-bound bus at the bus station outside – costing me almost double.

    Do they allow you to bring luggage in the bus (or at least place it in the compartment below)?

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Yes, there is a compartment below for big bags and suitcases. You are also allowed to bring small bags (backpack, etc) inside. 🙂

    Would you know if the regular commuters can avail this service? Thanks.
