What are the Bus Classes & Prices of Isarog Line?

The price of your bus trip will depend both on the destination and the class of your ticket. Note that not all ticket classes are available on certain routes yet for longer trips there is almost always a good choice of options. Opt for a sleeper coach for the most convenient overnight trip. Sleeper buses are usually equipped with berths or soft reclining seats, feature an onboard toilet and your ticket may also include other perks like snacks or even a lunch. Taking a night bus is also a good idea if you want to save on your hotel room. During the day an express service is often the best value for money as it makes less stops than an ordinary or standard class bus and travels faster. On some routes it may be crucial to choose the right class as, say, an ordinary or second class bus may need some 6 hours to cover the distance the first class or express bus travels in two hours!

Pros & Cons of Bus Travel

Pros of Bus Travel
  • Buses usually boast the widest network of destinations covered. They travel to the places you cannot get to by plane or even by train
  • Travelling by bus is easy – there is no need to arrive to the bus terminal much in advance, and the check-in is usually a very fast formality opposite to air travel
  • Bus tickets are very affordable. Yes, there are costly first class or VIP options but is you are on a budget, bus is the first means of transportation you have to think about
  • At the same time, there are different classes of service to suit any budget. If you are after a higher level of comfort, buses get you covered, too.
Cons of Bus Travel
  • Intercity bus terminals can be located outside the city centre in the outskirts. It means you will need to calculate extra time and money to get there. In certain destinations getting from the bus terminal can cost you more than you would expect because only a limited number of transportation companies is allowed to serve the route – and prices may be inflated.
  • During busy weekends or high season buses serving some tourist destinations may run out of schedule and require advanced booking.
  • While buses are not as weather dependent as ferries, bus trips can also be delayed or cancelled due to bad weather or road conditions – keep it in mind if travelling during certain seasons or to certain destinations.

Bus left early and arrived ahead of the estimated time of arrival. There were a few stops and after that it was all smooth sailing.

Driver and conductor are nice but the personnel at ticket/booking station needs to improve the way she talks to her customers.

The trip was quite fast been on the destination on time... how ever the conductor and the drivers are not hospitable.and friendly. at first i was struggling with my lugguge as i was placing it in the compartment, the conductor was there and he was just instructing me instead of giving a hands to lift my lugguge. Then on the bus en route. I ask if they can adjust the a/c since it was too cold that time i managed to shut it off but still there are blowers at the sides(up). They just told me that they cannot adjust the temperature anymore...its too cold though. It was my first time riding the Isarog lines(Bus) And well its a good experience riding but i was a little upset about the service of the crew...

Fairly good. Booking through the website won't allow you to avail senior citizen's discount and choose your preferred seat.

The bus crews are so strict. I humbly request to at least wait for another 10 minutes as my baggage was still in transit along MOA. Unfortunately my request was not granted.

The bus ride was good. Seats are comfortable and spacious. We stopped 2x on the way from Manila to Legazpi. We were on time. The only thing, it is very cold in the bus. Too much!

False advertisement. No snacks and meal and steward. No WIFI

No actual terminal. We need to walk to the middle of the highway to get into the bus. No CR in the ticketing office too. Well other than that, basically it's still good there's an office there to accommodate passengers.

There should be an option to choose seat number upon booking. I booked this bus so i will not be seating with someone i'm not related to. But the seat is pre-assigned.

Hindi accurate yung time sa nabook ko compare dun sa exact time na alis ng barko. from 2pm then changed to 12:30pm. Pag dating ko ng barko walang inisue na ticket sakin dahil late dw ako, samantala dumating ako before 12. Kaya pinaiwan muna ako sa loob ng bus na nasa barko sabi sakin pag umandar na daw yung barko saka ako umakyat. haissstt nakaka disappoint.

delayed trip from 12 hours it took as almost 24 hours travel. although the it wasnt their fault that there are close roads that causes so much traffic at least they can do is organize the terminal so that there is proper waiting area for the passengers..

Suggestions for improvement: Bus 801- 1) the seat numbers did not indicate which are the aisle or window seat. 2) USB charging connections very high and not accessible 3) there was an engine defect and we were stopped on the road for 3 hours. Cubao Terminal - 1) male Cr. You call it a "comfort" room? No water and very dirty! 2) terminal is too small for your large operation.

I booked a 20:00 to 9:40 trip to Legazpi as it was perfect for my 11am to 1pm engagement. We arrived Legazpi at almost 1pm! That's a 3 hour delay from the estimated time of arrival which is insane. I saw a review which said that the sleeper's space was uncomfortable and he/she was only 5'6". I'm almost 6 feet. I'll let your imagination handle that one. Still thankful for safely arriving in Legazpi though, but I'm not riding this bus line again.

The bus was 1.5 hours late. The bus ride was good, the airco could have been less cold.

I got d upper “bed” nside d sleeper bus; space was small: i cant even sit straight as my head is already touching the ceiling yet im only 5’6. Seatbelt was short i cnt even locked it; im an average-size man. “Hallway” was small; 1 person can only pass at a time

I was seated next to a woman who put “herbal oil” before going to sleep; I did not like the smell. There should Be an option to choose seat number; there should also be a rule that man should not be seated next to a woman, unless they are related.

Nice sleepers, it’s very comfortable but we arrived at 4:45am instead of 7:45, the air conditioning was way too strong, it was freezing in the bus. Driver a bit crazy, it’s moving a lot..when I say moving it’s more like crashing. No pillow or blanket.
