    Airplane

    by cyndymc Updated Oct 25, 2010

    We were lucky to have been able to get the promo fare of Cebu Pacific. Cebupac announced the discounted rates last June 2010, and hubby had to stay online to get slots for the promo fare. Double whammy! The travel period for the promo fare included the dates for the Masskara Festival! We got the earliest flight (4:55AM) so we can have an early start in Bacolod City. So if you intend to go to the Masskara Festival next year, be alert to book early. Watch for promo fares of Cebu Pacific.

    Airport Shuttle

    by cyndymc Updated Oct 25, 2010

    From the New Silay-Bacolod Airport, you can can take the air-conditioned vans going to Bacolod City. You will see them parked just after youi get out of the arrival area. We didn't use this shuttle service because we opted for a chartered taxi, but I gathered that fare is P150.

    Chartered Taxi

    by cyndymc Updated Dec 20, 2011

    Upon recommendation of my cousin-in-law, we opted to charter a taxi going to Bacolod City. We used the services of Faith Taxi, which my cousin-in-law always uses when he has business trips. We could have taken the airport vans, but hubby wanted to make sure his bag for photography gear is not cramped with the bags of other travelers. The Faith Taxi unit we used was new, clean (and smelled clean,too), had really cool air condition, and a radio by which the driver and the office can communicate with each other in case of accident or car breakdown.

    Hubby and I were impressed the first time we used the services of Faith Taxi. The driver assigned to fetch us at the airport was very professional, clean-looking and a nice guy. When I asked if our taxi would be passing by the church or any old house along the way to Bacolod City, he said no, but he offered to bring us to the Silay Cathedral. He also drove us around the City to see some old houses. Faith taxi rate is P500 from the Airport to the hotel in Bacolod. Tip is optional; we gave P100 tip.

    From Bacolod City to the airport, we again got the services of Faith Taxi. Rate was the same, P500. We gave only P50 tip because we went straight to the airport, no favor asked for side trip elsewhere.

    Update: When we went to the 2011 Masskara Festival, we were fetched by my cousin from the airport. After the festival, we got the services of Faith Taxi again. I canvassed from other taxi/car rental and they were charging us much more than P500.

    Metered Taxi

    by cyndymc Updated Oct 25, 2010

    Modern air-conditioned metered taxis can be hailed to go around the city. Flag down is P30. We didn't have a hard time getting a taxi from our hotel because many taxis park infront to wait for passengers. However, we had a difficult time hailing one when we came from the Masskara Festival. Some taxi drivers can be choosy; they son't want to use the meter sometimes, especially when they sense you are tourists...but you have to be choosy. too, Don't get old cabs, and make sure the aircon is working well.

    Public Utility Jeepney (PUJ)

    by cyndymc Updated Oct 25, 2010

    Bacolod City's jeepneys looked longer than the ones you see in Manila. Minimum fare is P7 only. Before you set out to go around the city, ask the front desk or hotel security guard what route you should take. The route is painted on the sides of the jeepney.

    I gathered that there are four jeepney routes: Banago-Libertad, Mandalagan- Libertad, Bata-Libertad, and Shopping-Libertad routes. It is easy to learn which PUJ to take; they ply the direction of rectangular routes. PUJs are the most popular mode of transportation for travel around the city.

    Joyride around Bacolod!

    by buenababe Written Jul 7, 2011

    When you are in Bacolod and you plan to go to places around the City, transportation is not a problem. Plenty of jeepneys that operate on specific routes usually pass by the downtown area where most shops are located.

    Some jeepneys operate 24 hours and there are others which are only until midnight. So it depends on where you are going.

    Standard fare within the City irregardless of the distance is P7.50 pesos, around $10cents.

    Ever-reliable Tricycle!

    by buenababe Written Jul 7, 2011

    In areas which the jeepneys dont pass by, especially going to Subdivisions or Housing, there are always tricycles ( improvised motorcycle with a side-car) which can be relied on. A tricycle can accommodate 5 passengers but sometimes it can reach up to 10, which of course depends on the size of people it carries. Filipinos are usually small so it can fit.

    Fare is usually P7.00, but on special trips or you are the only passenger, the driver may charge up to P50.00.

    From Dumaguete to Bacolod by land

    by thomyorke Updated Apr 4, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just go to the bus terminal and take the aircon bus to Bacolod via Mabinay which took around 5 hours. I think the reliable aircon bus is only til 2pm.
