Thursday, October 11, 2012
BUS company Genesis Transport Service launched on Tuesday its full operation of JoyBus, the executive coach service of the company, cutting travel time to and from Manila to less than five hours.
Rely Jalbuna, operations manager of the company, said the JoyBus was designed to reach Baguio City in a shorter time with first class service.
The JoyBus is a modern bus designed with 28 seats for ample leg room and space. It runs through the express route to cut travel time by at least an hour.
Jalbuna said there are a total of four JoyBuses plying the Cubao to Baguio route from 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. and Avenida to Baguio from 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.
Baguio to Cubao service leaves every 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and the Baguio to Avendia route from 12 p.m. and 2 a.m.
The express bus was crafted to respond to the market needs of tourists and regular commuters who often need to get to Manila at the fastest and most convenient way. The buses are designed to have WiFi access for all passengers.
The JoyBus is also equipped with blankets, a toilet and is serviced by a stewardess to attend to the needs of passengers, with travel fares far lower than the competition.
The company started its operation in 1991, Genesis Transport began operating with only three buses, a crew of six, and two partners. The first route was believed to be Manila to Bataan province.
In 2007, Genesis Transport had a total of 300 buses, servicing routes to key destinations in Central Luzon including Tarlac, Bataan, Cabanatuan City, Aurora and Baguio City.
Genesis Transport has opened a new subsidiary, known as Manila Genesis Charters & Tours Inc., in 2006 as a Philippine corporation and is duly registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Meticulous planning combined with an in-depth knowledge and expertise of the transport, charter and tourism market culminated the inception of Manila Genesis Charters & Tours Inc. This company is offering chartered tourist service and shuttle service in Clark Special Economic Zone in Pampanga.
