Ultimate Guide for Budget Traveler and Adventure Seeker

Manila to Baler with Joy Bus (Review)

For a long-hour of travel, its advisable to ride in a big bus with air conditioner, comfy chair and has its own CR. It's good to arrive in your favorite destination with a good sleep or without complaints to the bus.

Genesis Transport Service Inc. (GTSI) offers a deluxe busesm that will provide its passengers a different travel experience. This bus is called JoyBus. It is the executive coach of Genesis, promises to give its passengers a “joy ride,” convenience and safety ride.

Travel time to Baler Aurora will take 6-7 hours for a regular bus. I decided to choose Joy Bus of Genesis instead of other local bus company. I heard a lot of good reviews from my friends and travel bloggers about JoyBus. At first, my plan was to book online via iWantSeats, a real time bus booking in the Philippines. Since ny house is 15 minutes away from the terminal of Genesis, I decided to go directly to their office in Cubao, Quezon City to  purchase tickets. Fare is Php700. Cubao to Baler has an hour interval trip.

JoyBus is equipped with 28 comfy chairs, a toilet, LCD tv and has wi-fi service where you can connect to the Internet while on the road. The bus has its own stewardess. According to some of the articles online, these stewardesses graduates of tourism-related courses and underwent training in food and beverage handling.

The chair was big. It's like a lazy chair that provides real comfort to your back. It's really comfortable and relaxing. There's a big space on each chair where I can stretch my feet all the time. Other perks on this bus include blanket, biscuit and a bottled water.

From Manila to Baler, it only took 5 1/2 hours. Most of us had a great sleep. We don't feel tired even it's a long trip. Please be advised to bring jacket or sweater because it's really cold inside. 

JoyBus offers trip Manila (Cubao)- Baguio, Baguio- Manila (Cubao), Manila(Cubao)-Baler and Baler Manila(Cubao). You can contact them at 709 0803 or 421 1425. Genesis is located at G/F Genesis Transport Building 704 EDSA Corner New York St., Cubao, Quezon City, Philippines 1109.
