Philippines - New Tourist Perk: The UBE Express
by Kimkam Soon seo specialist
The first hurdle every traveler faces upon arrival to any tourist
destination is the need for a transportation w88 service
from the airport to their place of stay or hotel. In the Philippines,
specifically in Manila, taxi cabs are the custom vehicles that appear to rotate
around all three terminals of the airport.
Although, in the constant
modernization of transportation in the city and around the world,
transportation apps like Uber and Grab make getting a ride easier.
When I arrived from my trip to Europe last June 2016, I was
fortunate enough to be picked up by my family and relatives from the airport.
Although, witnessing the obvious chaos that goes on in airports with the first
hand struggle of my cousin’s girlfriend when finding a ride home, UBE Express
was a legit service and life saver.
Arriving at NAIA, it became quite difficult for my travel
companions such as my cousin and his girlfriend, to get a cab that will drop

rushing to get home and the cramped space from people forcing themselves in the
bus, it was indeed shocking for me to witness such excitement from Filipinos themselves.
Out of sheer curiosity, my cousin decided to ask where they were
going to get a bus from NAIA directly going to the Makati area at an unpleasant
hour. The couple then mentioned the new UBE Express which launched just last
January 2016, was a premium bus service that many Filipinos were getting into
for its stellar service and practical routing system.
We then decided to Google
the UBE Express and eventually got around to booking a ticket online. It was
fast, convenient and definitely user friendly.
How is it
different from a regular bus?
The new service that was provided by the Department of
Transportation and Communication is an airport bus service that bring tourists,
travelers and visitors from the airport to the main business districts around

accommodation of 24 passengers for a fixed rate of PHP 300.
Passengers are also
presented with several payment methods aside from cash, like via credit card or
the usage of tap cards. It takes several routes around Manila in order to cater
to the most efficient and convenient needs of the tourists and travelers on
