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:

  • They seem to not follow the timetable as strictly as they should. One of our readers shared that in his experience, the first bus left Trinoma at 5:40am, not 4am. So please have plenty of lead time before your flight. If your flight is in the early morning and you don’t have a ride, consider spending a night in Clark for good measure. We’ve been trying to reach Genesis to clarify their schedule but no response from them until now.
  • 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.

    Hi po,

    Thanks for this
    Alam nyo po contact number ng Genesis Transport?
    Thank you!

  2. Helen says:

    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.

  3. Rafael Luis Flores says:

    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.

  4. Philippe says:

    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. 🙂

  5. Cheche Adobas says:

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

  6. Daphne Margarita Rimando says:

    For the clark to NAIA 3 route, is there a pick up and drop off at Trinoma?

  7. Crocodile Genesis Bus says:

    Don’t ride at Genesis Bus if your going at SM Mexico Pampanga or Robinson Pampanga because they will not go straight at malls. Ride only Bataan Transit Bus if your going to SM Pampanga and Robinson Pampanga. Konduktor or Conductor are very much crocodile, if your asking them if they going straight at SM Pampanga and Robinson Pampanga they will tell you they do but they aren’t. Be careful on riding Genesis Bus. Only Bataan Transit is the only bus that goes straight along Manila Pampanga Bataan.

    Its not true that it will drop off and pick up to those designated areas, im riding at genesis612, and its picking it up at sm clark, sadly it takes time.

  10. analou says:

    hi. how many hour po from trinoma to clark airport? 6am po kasi flight ko makakaabot pa po ba ako pagsumakay ako 4am?

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      1.5 hours mahigit. Baka masyadong tight if 6am ang alis ng flight. You should give it an allowance din in case something unexpected happens.

    • pat says:

      Catch the last trip po. Ung 12:30Am then maghntay nlng kayo sa airport.

  11. MAY ANN LARAN says:

    paano po kapag sa robinson galeria sumakay? derecho lang po ba mag abang? wala po ba reservation ng ticket?

  12. Chuchay says:

    I have 7am flight to Bacolod, if i’ll take 4am trip from trinoma to clark, aabot ba ako? thanks!

  13. Shei says:

    Hi

  14. Mariel says:

  15. elwud medina says:

  16. Aura says:

    Hello po,

    Ask ko lang po if babiyahe po ng P2P bus going to Clark airport from Trinoma need pa po namin bumili or pareserve ng ticket or something? or basta wait lang kami sa terminal?

  17. Thea says:

    Hi, flight ko po departing from clark is at 8am. Aabot po ba if I ride the bus at 4am sa Trinoma? Thanks

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      International or domestic. If domestic, kaya pa. If international, masyadong tight so i wouldn’t recommend that.

        • Yoshke Dimen says:

          Contact Genesis Bus na lang din to be absolutely sure of the time aalis ung bus.

  18. louie suyu says:

    gud mrning..ask ko lng po kung my contact no ng genesis p2p s clark airport po

  19. pat says:

    Flight po namen is 8:55Am. Balak namen ung 4am sa Naia3. Abot po kaya un?

  20. rider says:

    Hi! Where is the specific area in Trinoma grounds na sakayan ng bus bound to Clark airport? May nakapagsabi kasi sakin na sa side daw ng North Ave. tapat ng SM North (not along EDSA) ang sakayan. It will be first time going to Clark airport and my first time riding a P2P bus at Trinoma kaya I don’t know which is which. Please help.

  21. rider says:

    Also, if I’m riding a bus from south, saan ako banda bababa which is nearest to the pick-up point area?

  22. jay says:

    Ask ko lang po if 8am ang flight ko sa NAIA3 domestic, kaya po ba ng 4am alis ko sa clark P2P?

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Jay. Kaya if everything goes right. Pero super tight. If biglang magka-problema like super traffic or anything, you might not make it.

  23. Jessica Placido says:

    Hi Good Afternoon! Ask ko lang po. if 4am ang alis going to clark, and 8am ang flight, hahabol po ba? What time makakarating sa clark airport if 4am ang alis? Thank you in advance for your prompt reply.

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Jessica, from which stop? If from Pasay, siguro darating ka at around 6:30am sa Clark. If international yung flight, malabo na. If domestic, kaya naman pero medyo tight, so personally, di ko rin marecommend kasi in case something happens, like masiraan yung bus or biglang may accident and magtraffic, you’re going to miss your flight.

  24. Jun-Jun says:

    Hello,

    10:10 Am ung Flight from Clark, ok lang kaya yong 4AM na ride from Trinoma to Clark? Thank you..

  25. Ingrid says:

    Hi! My flight is 12NN at Clark Airport (Domestic Flight)

    I will ride P2P bus from NAIA 3, the 2 possible options of P2P bus trip is 06AM and 0830AM. Makakahabol kaya ako if 0830AM ako sasakay ng P2P bus? parang masyado maaga po ata kapag 06AM. Please response, thank you.

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Ingrid, parang masyadong tight yung 8:30am. Kung ako yan, I’d just take the 6am to be sure. But that’s just me. Hehe

  26. glenn says:

    pls update your bus schedule. nakalagay sa trinoma-clark 4 am ang first trip. pero pagdating ko dun 5:40 pa. sad.

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Glenn, thanks for sharing! Their latest timetable still says 4am, but I guess, ugh, they’re not following the sked as strictly as they should. I’ll take note and highlight this na lang sa post above so others are warned. Thanks again for this!
