About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    DLTB Bus Line to Batangas, Lucena and Sta. Cruz, Laguna

    For a few months now, an old familiar bus line plies the routes of Manila to Batangas City, Manila to Lucena, Quezon and Manila to Sta. Cruz, laguna with the same color as the once ubiquitous BLTB Bus (which stands for Batangas Laguna Tayabas Bus Co).

    BLTB has since stopped operations and now DLTB is now on the roads with the same look and hoping to regain the bus route of the old BLTB Bus Line.

    In Pasay City on Taft Avenue just beside the south-bound LRT station of Sen. Gil Puyat (Buendia), you can see the new DLTB bus terminal.

    In Sta. Cruz, Laguna, Tutubi also saw the DLTB bus station on the former bus terminal of Kapalaran Bus Line (KBL once ruled the Manila to Sta. Cruz route against the former red buses of BLTB) near the Pagsawitan junction and Asian Travelers Hotel in Sta. Cruz.

    The Cubao to Sta. Cruz and Pasay - Sta. Cruz routes used to be dominated and monopolized by HM Transport and Green Star Express respectively, both under the wings of JAM Transit (with terminal in Barangay Pagsawitan, Pagsanjan)

    DLTB Bus fare (cheaper than HM Transport and Green Star)
    LRT to Sta. Cruz, Laguna: PhP132.00
    Buendia to Calamba: PhP74.00
    Buendia to Paete: PhP143.00

    DLTBco Trip Schedules:
    Buendia to Sta. Cruz: first trip at 4am. last trip at 10pm

    update: DLTB bus serves the Buendia to Sta. Maria, Laguna twice daily at 4pm and 6pm trip schedules to pass by Calamba, Los Banos, Bay, Calauan, Victoria, Pila, Sta. Cruz, Pagsanjan, and the highways of Lumban, Kalayaan, Paete, Pakil, Pangil, Siniloan, Famy, Mabitac, Sta. Maria. Same bus routes leave Sta. Maria town at 4am and 6am daily going to Taft/LRT/Buendia

    DLTB Co doesn't have yet an official website but has a facebook page. please call or email them directly for the latest fares, trip schedules, freight/waybill charges and charter bus rates.

    Anong ibig sabihin ng "DLTB"? "D" stands for "Dagupan" ba?

    anonymous, nope. DLTB is owned by DMMV something like Del Monte...that's why my officemates who commute everyday to Tanauan, Batangas call DLTB as ketchup though i don't think there's a relation between DLTB and Del Monte catsup

    SINO PO BA ANG BAGONG MAYARI NG DLTB?

     
    At Jun 10, 2012, 7:13:00 PM, Anonymous Rico David said...

    Me and my family do have a bad experience with the conductor of DLTB bus # 22 which travels from Gil Puyat to Sta. Cruz, Laguna.I paid for 3 persons (me,my wife and son)and we are coming home to Laguna. Each of us were ticketed P99 so the three of us equaled to P297. I gave the conductor P1,000 and he gave me the 700 pesos change and counted it in front of me. Still he still lacked P3, he said he'll give it to me later.

    He passed many times near over my seat but he is not giving me the P3 change. When I asked him about it, he told me he gave it to me already. I argued with him and showed him the coins in my pocket which are P11 (10 +1 peso). He has nothing to argue as I showed that there are clearly no 3 pesos along with my coins so he gave the P3 to me which I swear he did not give it to me. I can sense that this conductor is up to something. Staring at me from afar, he came back to me again and said his collected money is lacking 100 pesos and he said he has given me P800 which is 100 pesos over. I told him how can that be when you have counted my P700 change in front of me? When I show him the content of my wallet there is the 500 + 200 change he gave me and some few 20s. He still argued that he gave me P800.

    When he came to his seat near the driver they were laughing out loud and still glaring at me. This conductor is really a bad person who should not be in a respectable and innovated bus line like DLTB co. He did not have his nameplate on his polo shirt which DLTB conductors must have. He is wearing a baseball cap which must not be when inside the bus. I take the time to email you people to know this and may the management of DLTB find this conductor and warn him. DLTB management, check the background of this conductor. He may victimize other people and good for me I am ready to put up a fight when I know I'm right.

    Note: The bus number is 22 (which he tacked in our tickets) vying from Gil Puyat station (below LRT station) to Sta. Cruz. We boarded the bus between 2:30 pm on June 10 and were at Los Banos at around 4pm. If you will be boarding this bus, be aware of its conductor. He is moreno, slim, and around 5'6". He usually wear a baseball cap.

    maraming kapalpakan ang dltb. maraming mandurugas na konduktor lalo na ung bus number 22 na plying from Gil Puyat to Sta. Cruz.Beware sa sukli nyo. Pag nagbayad kayo ng malaking pera at sinabing sobra sinukli sa inyo at gusto kayong kuhanin ng 100 hwag kayo pumayag. Ang masama pa walang name tag konduktor ng DLTB. Kunin nyo name ng konductor at ireport sa office. Modus Operandi nila ita sa DLTB.

    kanina lang around 7:30 pm. Sinungitan ako ng bus driver ng dltb byaheng pa Sta.Cruz, Laguna. Wala akong ginagawa sa kaniya. Kaya Wala siyang karapatan para sungitan ako. At dun naman sa conductoe niya, hindi ko kasalanan kung sa unahan ako nakatayo at dun kami nagsisiksikan, kasalanan yun ng mga nasa gitna kasi ayaw nila umusod sa dulo. kaya wag kang magpaparinig at sakin ka nakatingin. Estudyanta lang ako, wala kayong karapatan para maging ganyan. oh baka naman dahil estudyante ako kaya ganun ang attitude nyo sakin? tsk tsk Si lod na bahala sa inyong dalawa.Bus 315 hyundai Aer yung nakalagay sa ticket ko.
