Baguio City has gotten closer and closer to Manila. What used to be an eight-hour drive was shortened to six. And now, if conditions are right, you can reach the City of Pines in only four hours.

But it’s not just the travel time that underwent major changes. Even when you’re taking public transportation, the quality of the journey has vastly improved too. Not only is the ride smoother — thanks to our expressways — the experience onboard the new buses are a lot more pleasant now. It’s no wonder why more and more people choose to visit Baguio these days.

Baguio is only 4-6 hours away from Manila, depending on which part of Manila you’re coming from, which route the bus takes, and whether or not it makes a stop along the way. Regular buses usually take Dau Exit (NLEX) or Concepcion Exit (SCTEX) and make at least one stop. Travel time is around 6 hours.

But the past few years have seen the rise of luxury buses that take passengers straight to Baguio! Victory Liner also introduced their first class buses, giving their loyal customers a more comfortable option. JoyBus has a fleet that is made up entirely of deluxe and premier buses. And most recently, Pangasinan Solid North Transit has also launched their own P2P buses to Baguio. These buses take every expressway ahead and they don’t make any stop, cutting down the travel time to only 4-5 hours.

In this post, we’ll share with you the schedules and fares of these premium P2P buses!

JOYBUS

JoyBus is the luxury arm of Genesis Transport. They only have two classes: Deluxe (aka Executive) and Premier. Both Premier and Deluxe classes are 28-seater executive coaches with 3 seats per row (2+1), ensuring a wide leg room and plenty of moving space. Each booking comes with free snacks, free bottled water, and free wi-fi. But here’s the difference:

  • Premier Class is their top class with USB ports and a personal entertainment device. In our experience, the movie selection is still pretty limited, but since you only have four hours to burn, it’s not that bad. All premier buses also have a restroom onboard and blankets.
  • Deluxe/Executive Class has no USB ports or personal entertainment device at all. There is a TV screen in front, like regular buses, but that’s about it as far as entertainment is concerned. I’m not sure if all executive units have an in-bus comfort room but there was one in the bus we tried.

Below are the timetables per route. We also indicated the types of buses. Items in bold are the Premier buses.

FIRST CLASS buses have bigger legroom, free snacks, free water, free wifi, and a restroom onboard. Note, however, that they don’t have personal entertainment devices installed.
