With travel restrictions being eased and destinations reopening up to tourists and returning residents alike, more people are considering traveling again. However, things are very different now. There are more protocols and travel requirements to ensure health and safety, and regulations are still in place for accommodations, establishments, and transportation.

The holidays are just around the corner and many are looking forward to going back to their provinces to spend time with their families. Some provincial bus companies have resumed operations albeit under strict restrictions and with very limited routes. Among them is JAM Liner, a popular choice for those coming from and going to the CALABARZON region.

What terminal does JAM LINER BUS use?

JAM Liner currently has only 3 routes and they’re all to and from various spots in Batangas. All these work on a point-to-point basis.

In Metro Manila, JAM Liner uses the Paranaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX), which is not the main hub for buses to and from the Southern Tagalog Region.

In Batangas, JAM uses the following terminals:

  • Batangas Grand Terminal
  • JAM Lemery Terminal
  • SM Lipa Bus Terminal
