Noveleta-Makati P2P bus service opens to commuters
NOVELETA, Cavite — After a month-long delay, the Noveleta-Makati Point-to-Point (P2P) bus service went on its maiden trip Tuesday with embarkation areas in this town going to destination points at the Makati Business District.
In an interview with Philippine News Agency (PNA), Mayor Dino Reyes Chua said the bus operator San Agustin Transport Service Corp. started operating at 6 a.m. Tuesday with a fleet of seven Golden Dragon buses, proceeding from their pick-up terminals in Puregold Noveleta and All Home, Kawit, going to the drop-off point in Trasierra in Makati City.
“This P2P will not only benefit people from Noveleta, but also the nearby towns of Rosario, Kawit, Cavite City, and Tanza,” Chua said.
The new transport service has hourly trips starting 6 a.m., with its last trip leaving at 7 p.m.
Meanwhile, vice versa trips from Trasierra to Noveleta starts at 8 a.m. and the last trip taking to the road at 9 p.m.
The P2P transport service charges passengers a flat-rate of PHP120.
“Nagpapasalamat po ako sa Department of Transportation (DOTr) and Land Transport Franchising and Regulatory Bureau (LTFRB) na nabigyan ng aksyon ang aming hiling (We thank the DOTr and LTFRB for acting on our request),” Chua added.
The P2P transport service has scheduled a 15-minute boarding time and its estimated arrival at destination point is about 30 minutes per trip.
The buses will traverse Cavitex to NAIA Expressway to Skyway to Trasierra, Makati and vice versa.
Senior citizens and persons with disabilities (PWDs) are entitled to a 20 percent discount and have standard designated seats in the front bus seats, it was explained. (Dennis Abrina/PNA)
