For NAIA and PITX connections, LRT-1 collaborates with the P2P bus service.
The Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) has collaborated with UBE Express Inc. (UBEx) to provide direct point-to-point (P2P) connections to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and the Paranaque Integrated Terminal Exchange, making it simpler to go throughout Metro Manila (PITX).
The LRMC, which operates and maintains the Light Rail Transit Line 1 (LRT-1), said in a statement on Tuesday that it had signed a memorandum of understanding with UBEx to create a new P2P route that will start on Wednesday and include the LRT-1 EDSA Station, NAIA Terminals 1-3, PITX, SM Mall of Asia, and Ayala Malls Manila Bay (Sept. 1).
The P2P buses’ designated pickup and drop-off locations are situated near the southern entrance of LRT-1 EDSA Station, according to the report.
“Through this collaboration, travelers who would usually need to use several modes of transportation to reach their destinations now have the opportunity to travel quicker by using the train and a 24-seater premium airport bus service at a reasonable cost,” according to the LRMC.
The new route’s first journey is at 6 a.m. every day and the final trip is at 7 p.m., with a bus coming every 30 minutes in between.
“Passengers may also use a beep card to pay for both LRT-1 and premium bus rides,” according to the LRMC.
It stated that as a “special promotional offer,” the new P2P service’s minimum price would be PHP25 from September 1 to October 1, 2021, with the minimum cost increasing to PHP50 after that.
UBEx is a privately held transportation business that offers peer-to-peer bus services, making it Metro Manila’s first P2P bus operator.
For different airlines, the business also offers tarmac shuttle services to carry customers inside the airport facilities.
