This is an amazing news!
The Department of Transportation (DOTr) opened Point-to-Point Bus (P2P) down South with Starmall Alabang – Vista Mall Daang Hari and Dasmarinas routes.
In order to help reduce traffic congestion and encourage private car users to use public transport, DOTr, Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), and MetroExpress Connect, Inc. launched two new routes of the Premium P2P, namely, Route 1: Starmall Alabang-Vista Mall Daang Hari, Bacoor and Route 2: Starmall Alabang-Dasmariñas.
With an introductory fare of Php 50.00 (Php 40.00 for students, senior citizens and PWDs) for the Alabang-Bacoor route, and Php 70.00 (P56.00 for students, senior citizens and PWDs) for Alabang-Dasmariñas route, and vice versa, the new P2P routes will operate from 5 AM to 8 PM, with fixed schedule of trips that leaves every 15 minutes during peak hours and 30 minutes during off-peak hours regardless of passenger count. The buses will travel directly from terminal to drop-off point without frequent stops.
MetroExpress Connect’s premium buses use a cashless system with reloadable Prime Tap cards. The certified Euro 5 compliant air-conditioned Volvo buses are also equipped with free Wi-Fi, 4 flat screen TVs, onboard radio, CCTV, and GPS. They have four reclining seats per row with generous leg room and low floor entry with a retractable wheelchair ramp at the exit for persons with disabilities (PWDs).
