MANILA – Premiere Point-to-Point bus services are now available from Clark International Airport to Subic Bay in Olongapo and the City of Dagupan in Pangasinan, allowing thousands of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) a convenient way of going to their foreign destinations without the hassle of going to Metro Manila.
The buses are fielded by Victory Liner Incorporated (VLI), one of the biggest bus companies in Northern Luzon.
Point-to-point buses only pick up and drop off passengers at designated terminals, and are deemed a faster means of reaching one’s destination.
VLI Operations Manager Ronald Sarmiento said Victory Liner decided to give this service to help ease the burdens of OFWs and their families based in Pampanga, Bataan, Zambales and Pangasinan. Instead of disembarking at Manila-based airports and riding buses to Subic, Bataan, Pampanga and Pangasinan, OFWs and tourists – both locals and foreign – can now catch their international and local trips from Clark International Airport in Mabalacat, Pampanga.
Clark International Airport is the gateway to Northern and Central Luzon. Several airline companies like the Philippine Airlines, Qatar Airways, Cebu Pacific Air, Emirates, Asiana, Jin and Korean Airlines currently use it.
There will be four routes, with all trips going to and from Clark airport in Dagupan and Subic. For faster trips, Victory Liner will use the TPLEX and SCTEX.
“From Clark international airports, there will be a trip from Clark to Subic. This trip begins at 1 am and the last trip will be at 8pm. For those living in Bataan and Zambales, there will be trips from Subic to San Fernando. For residents of Pangasinan, trips to Clark will start at 1am and the last trip at8pm,” says Sarmiento.
For the Clark to Dagupan routes, Victory Liner will only pick up passengers from Clark airport, SM Clark, SM Carmen and Urdaneta Victory Liner terminals. For passengers going from Clark to Subic, pickup and dropoff points are to be found at Clark international airport, SM Clark, Victory Liner bus terminals at San Fernando and Dinalupihan and Harbort Point.
