Looking to ride a bus to Baguio? We’ve got you covered in this post! Here are Victory Liner and JoyBus schedules to help you plan your trip!

In the past, Baguio City was an eight-hour drive. In recent years, it was shortened to six hours and now, with the right conditions, you can reach Baguio in as fast as four hours!

That’s right. You can easily reach Baguio today without any hassle.

Aside from the travel time, the quality of a bus to Baguio has improved, too. There are now new buses going to Baguio which has a smoother ride and more pleasant.

Depending on where you are coming from in Manila, Baguio is only four to six hours away. The travel time when it comes to regular buses going Baguio is around 6 hours. These usually take NLEX or SCTEX and make one or two stops.

But when it comes to a bus to Baguio, there are available executive buses like the JoyBus of Genesis Transport and the First Class Deluxe service of Victory Liner. They don’t make any stop along the way and take the expressway so the travel time is cut down from 6 hours to only 4 to 5 hours.

If you’re planning on riding a bus to Baguio, here are the fares and schedules of JoyBus and Victory Liner.

Cubao Terminal

JoyBus Schedule

JoyBus of Genesis Transport is one of the bus to Baguio I usually take when going home to Baguio because the Baguio terminal is closer to the central business district. There are two types of JoyBus buses – Premiere and Deluxe. Both buses have a capacity of 28 seats. Each one offers free WiFi, restrooms, water, snacks, and wide legroom. The only difference is that Premiere has a personal entertainment device (somewhat like a tablet) placed on the back of each seat and USB ports for you to charge your device.

How To Book A Bus To Baguio Online

I’ve written a step-by step guide on how to book online for both Victory Liner and JoyBus. You can check them here:

JoyBus Vs Victory Liner First Class Deluxe

JoyBus Deluxe & Premiere are mostly the same as the Victory Liner First Class Deluxe bus. But here’s a  comparison between the two to help you decide which one you’d like to ride.

According to Experience

What I like about JoyBus is that they lend their passengers blankets. Each blanket is wrapped in cellophane and washed every after use to ensure that they’re clean. Unlike JoyBus, Victory Liner buses are too cold especially when you travel at night so make sure to bring your own blanket if you don’t want to purchase from Victory Liner.

I’ve read comment threads online where people are saying that Victory Liner First Class buses have cleaner restrooms. During my travels, I find that the cleanliness and status of the restrooms depend on the bus unit you’re riding on and who you’re riding with. Some passengers don’t clean up after themselves. Some bus units have better restrooms than others. It all depends.
