    Bataan by Bus

    by i-s-a Written May 29, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Coming from Manila, visitors have the option to go to almost any part of Bataan by bus. Bus companies plying the highways of the province are Genesis, Bataan Transit, Sinulog and Victory Liner. The last two passing only Dinalupihan...it goes to Olongapo as its final destination rather than Balanga.

    Genesis has terminals at Pasay (beside the MRT Terminal) and Avenida (at the back of Philippine Rabbit terminal). Bataan Transit in Avenida (beside Genesis) and in Cubao (same terminal as 5 Star buses).

    Manila Routes would be Avenida and Pasay....Bataan would be Balanga and Mariveles. Fare would range from Php150 to Php 190 depending on your destination and on the prices of petrol.

    NOTE:
    These bus companies do not allow reservation...work on a first come first serve basis. Just hop in and wait for the conductor to give you the receipt and pay.

    If your destination is beyond Balanga (Pilar, Orion, Limay, Cabcaben, and Mariveles), take the Mariveles bus to avoid long travel time. These buses use the highway and would skip the towns of Hermosa, Orani, Samal, Abucay and Balanga.

    If you need to transfer to a jeepney or tricycle...you could also request the driver to bring you to the Center Terminal in Balanga.

    easiest way of traveling...

    Road conditions in Bataan are very good in the most part of the province and improving at a rapid rate, due to a concerted effort by the provincial government. The turnoff to Bataan from the Olongapo- Gapan Road at Dinalupihan is clearly marked. The road forks three km. Further on; the left turn being the coastal road, passing through major towns. This road is no longer continuous and cut near Orion and Limay.

    By veering right at the junction, you cab travel on the Roman Superhighway, which saves considerable travel time. The capital Balanga can be reached in about 25 minutes from Dinalupihan turnoff, while it is a further 45 minutes drive to Mariveles and the Bataan Special Economic Zone.

    One hour ferry to Bataan

    by birgitte Updated Sep 7, 2002

    Ferry service from Manila to Bataan is now available. Travel time is considerably shorter than if you were to travel by bus or car to Bataan from Manila.

    From Manila, you embark/disembark from PICC in Roxas Boulevard. The port on the Bataan side is in Orion. The trip takes 1 hour. That is considerably shorter than the 2 - 5 hour drive it would take you if you were to take a car or bus to Bataan from Manila.

    The Ferry is airconditioned and faily safe.

    If you have a tendency towards sea sickness, avoid the last trip which happens in the late afternoons. That is the time that water tends to be a bit choppy although you can be assured that if the situation is a bit dangerous, the ferry service will not continue.

    The first trip is 6:30 Am. The last 5:15 Pm. Please arrive early as this is one of the services in the Philippines that doesn't follow "Filipino time". That means, the ferry always leave on sched... on the dot. Tickets can be purchased on the spot and there is no need for reservations.

    The ferry in the picture looks similar to the one they use. This one actually takes the route Manila - Corregidor.

    Jeep service is available at the Orion ferry dock at certain hours to take you to Balanga or other routes. But if you have relatives/friends who have cars, there are parking lots there and waiting areas they can use while waiting for you.

    Corregidor Ferry
