Airport-bound passengers from Quezon City now have a more convenient option to travel as the Araneta Center partners with UBE Express, the Philippine’s first premium point-to-point bus service, to offer a new route from the bustling commercial district to the four terminals of Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), and vice versa.
Formally launched on September 3 with officials from the Araneta Group and UBE Express, the premium bus service to and from NAIA will begin its run on September 4, Tuesday, with a fare of only P100 per head.
This new service is seen as a big boost for commuters from the northeastern part of Metro Manila who are bound for or coming from the airport. Furthermore, this service is also highly valuable to the many ex-pats and foreign visitors who are staying in the Araneta Center or its neighboring communities.
Fully air-conditioned, equipped with Wi-Fi, GPS, CCTV
With the heavy traffic and congestion in Metro Manila, traveling to or from the airport can easily give the riding public a stressful goodbye or a taxing welcome.
UBE Express aims to remedy this situation with its top-of-the-line buses that are fully air-conditioned, equipped with global positioning system (GPS) technology, Wi-Fi connection, Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras, and easy access to persons with disabilities.
While waiting before their trip to the airport, the riding public can also enjoy a throng of dining, shopping and leisure options in Araneta Center. Upon arriving from NAIA, they, too, have the option to stay in Novotel Manila Araneta Center, located a few blocks away from the UBE Express lounge at the Araneta Center Bus Station, and enjoy what the country’s premier lifestyle and leisure hub has to offer.
The first Araneta Center-bound P2P bus from NAIA will leave at 5:30 a.m., while the last trip will be at 9 p.m. The first NAIA-bound P2P bus from the Araneta Center Bus Station will leave at 7 a.m. and the last trip is at 9 p.m. UBE Express recommends downloading their app on Android (iOS version to follow) to check on the real-time routes of the buses.
The premium P2P buses are just the latest mode of transportation that plies roads going to and coming from Araneta Center. Aside from private vehicles and taxis, public utility vehicles such as buses and jeepneys and elevated trains from the Light Rail Transit Line 2 and the Metro Rail Transit Line 3 ferry an average of more than a million people to and from Araneta Center every day.
