    Victory Liner Deluxe Bus to Baguio (Cubao/Pasay): Trip Schedules, Fare, Contact Number, First Class Bus

    In the absence of direct flights from Manila to Baguio, the most convenient public transportation going to Baguio is offered by Victory Liner via its deluxe bus service to the summer capital.

    Tutubi recently went to Baguio for an official trip that coincided with the Panagbenga Festival. He first took an ordinary air conditioned bus from Cubao to Baguio (mainly because his office mate wasn't able to reserve ticket on time which usually sold out early for the Baguio flower festival) and the deluxe bus service on the return flight.

    UPDATED May 2019

    Victory Liner Deluxe Bus service is called as such that it uses a special 29-seater bus equipped with its own toilet/CR/washroom (aircraft terminology: lavatory), a service attendant (sterwardess or "flight" attendant) and bus fare inclusive of light snacks (a bottle of mineral water and pack of Cream-O chocolate cookies). The seats can be reclined much more than the those of the ordinary aircon buses, comes equipped with legrests and footrests to make your legs stretch just enough for you to lie down. Also unlike the ordinary aircon bus trips, the deluxe service don't make three stopovers due to the presence of the on-board lavatory taking about 45 minutes off the travel time.

    inside the Victory Liner bus station filled with people leaving Baguio after the Panagbenga Festival

    The deluxe bus service's 29 seats, all equipped with seat belts, are numbered 1 to 29 with seat numbers 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 17, 20, 23, 26 on the left column window side; seat numbers 3, 6, 9, 12, 19, 22, 25, 29 right column, window side (recommended if you want to be alone or disturbed by your seatmate). The rest are middle aisle side. Seat number 19, the seat of Tutubi, is facing the toilet.
    There are free snacks, wireless Internet (wifi), power outlets for charging your gadgets like in an airplane, more legroom and sometimes android tablets for your use.

    There are also two video monitors for films shown during the trip. (They played Sherlock Holmes and Surrogate with Blu-ray copies, pirated films really) plus free Internet Wifi and android tablets for use of passengers to while away time.

    victory liner deluxe busthe deluxe bus service comes with ample leg room, much more than the ordinary aircon buses, reclining seats, and leg rest but not not enough for you to lie down.

    Bus fare is PhP200.00 more than the ordinary aircon bus fare but worth it for incontinent people (not Tutubi. He didn't even use the CR during the entire trip) or those looking for "first class" service. :P


    Call Victory Liner telephone number for ticket reservations to reserve tickets and pick up a few days before the trip to avoid ticket cancellations. This is specially true for holidays particularly long weekends and Holy Week and peak season that is Panagbenga Festival on the last Sunday of February.

    If you're like Tutubi who enjoys the "trees and not just the forests" by looking out the window to see the scenery, request to be seated window side. To avoid direct sunlight when traveling during the day, request to be seated on the left column (facing the driver) when traveling from Manila to Baguio in the morning and right column in the afternoon since you're basically traveling northbound.

    A similar Gold bus service by Philtranco plies the Manila to Legazpi City and Manila to Daet (Camarines Norte) route taken by Tutubi in 2008 for the Daet and Calaguas Island trip.

    Pets like cats and dogs are not allowed inside aircon buses as a rule of LTFRB

    Cubao to Baguio trip schedule: 10:50pm daily (travel time 6 hours via NLEX-SCTEx)
    Baguio to Manila trip schedule: 1:15pm daily (travel time 6 hours, no stopovers)

    Victory Liner Deluxe Bus Fare Baguio to Cubao, Quezon City: PhP715.00
    Victory Liner Deluxe Bus Fare Baguio to Pasay: PhP750.00
    Victory Liner Ordinary Bus Fare to Baguio: PhP450.00

    Baguio to Pasay First Class trip schedule: 12:10am, 1:10am, 9:10am, 10:10am, 11:10am, 12:10pm, 1:10pm, 10:10pm, 11:10pm

    Ordinary buses stopovers: Balagtas, Bulacan; Tarlac, and Singson, Pangasinan

    On the return route: bus stops are Camachile on NLEX and on EDSA there's Paramount (the no longer extant Paramount Theater at the corner of West Avenue and EDSA in front of SM City North EDSA), Quezon Avenue (under the Quezon Avenue viaduct in front of Centris Station), and Kamuning and finally at Victory Liner Cubao Station.

    Bus travel, dunno, if those busses are really comfortable...

    we usually ride victory liner buses too when going to baguio; although we took a huge van during our last trip 2 years ago when we stayed there for 4 days and savored panagbenga 2008.

    it's my first time actually to know that such deluxe buses are now available at victory liner. i know farinas in lacson ave, manila has those "luxury" buses with toilets and all; bound to ilocos norte.

    how was this year's panagbenga?

    pieterbie, in your part of the world, it's a different thing :(

    docgelo, deluxe bus service is quite old actually, but first time to try it. Panagbenga is still the same, too many people. I've an upcoming post about my Panagbenga 2010 experience titled "Di Na Natuto" for i've been there too in 2003 :(
