    PVP Liner Bus to Ayala Avenue, Makati from SM San Lazaro, Manila

    PVP Liner once served commuters to Ayala Avenue, Makati coming from Sampaloc, Manila, this is the route of PVP Liner bus from España via Nagtahan. They stopped operating the route when Mayor Erap demanded only buses with bus terminals in Manila can enter the city.

    AS of posting time, PVP Liner resumed operation but bus terminal now at SM San Lazaro and pass by Taft Avenue to Buendia (Gil Puyat), turns right to Makati Avenue and turn right to Ayala Avenue then back to SM San Lazaro via Gil Puyat and Taft Avenue

    UPDATE: August 8, 2016

    PVP Liner STOPPED operations after Manila bus ban of Mayor Erap, PVP Liner probably doesn't have a bus terminal at P. Noval corner Espana

    Bus fare to Ayala Avenue from España: PhP25.00

    From P. Noval St. corner España, Sampaloc, Manila (UST) is located the PVP Liner bus waiting for passengers.

    The bus will turn left to España, right to A.H. Lacson (formerly Gov. Forbes),
    pass Nagtahan Bridge, onwards to Quirino Highway,
    left to Sen. Osmena Highway (linked to SLEX)

    left to Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue (formerly Buendia, area known as Mayapis, near the PNR train station), cross Pasong Tamo and Ayala Avenue (landmarks: Makati Medical Center, Crispa, Makati Post Office),

    right to Makati Avenue (landmarks: Petron, Pacific Star Building, Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP), Manila Mandarin Hotel), right to Ayala Avenue (The Peninsula Hotel, Shangri-la Hotel, Makati Stock Exchange, Ayala Triangle, Tower One),

    cross Paseo de Roxas (The Enterprise Center, Bank of the Philippine Islands, Insular Life Building, Philamlife Tower) cross V.A. Rufino St (formerly Hererra St, landmarks: Rufino Tower, PBCOM, Smart Tower) cross Leviste St/Salcedo St (landmarks: GT Tower),

    cross Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue (landmarks: RCBC towers), pass around Zuellig Loop (The Columns) then goes back to España via the earlier described route to A.H. Lacson, left turn to Dapitan St then bak to P. Noval St or straight to Quiapo.

    Note: PVP liner also has routes from Quiapo, to Taft Avenue, Bautista then Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue

    in the morning, there are numerous corners in Sampaloc where you can see queues of people waiting for shuttle buses, gt express or colorum lines.

    EDSA buses with signboard Ayala/LRT turn right to Ayala from EDSA, up to Buendia, Zuelling Loop then Sen. Gil Puyat up to LRT and Leveriza. The Ayala/Ibabaw buses just pass by EDSA and Ayala Avenue intersection and drop off passengers under MRT Ayala Station

    Hi -

    Good morning! Will the PVP liner bus pass through Taft Avenue (Pedro Gil LRT Station) going to Makati Med during daytime? If not, is there a nearer street from NFA Paco Manila office where these buses pass? What are their schedules? Thanks!

    At Oct 29, 2012, 12:45:00 PM, Blogger GingGoy said...

    anonymous, yes, those buses pass by Taft avenue up to Vito Cruz (Pablo Ocampo) only from Quiapo

    How about po if I come from Ayala cor Gil Puyat Ave in Makati? Will they pass by The Columns then straight to Pedro Gil LRT station? Thank you po!

    At Oct 30, 2012, 10:53:00 AM, Blogger GingGoy said...

    anonymous, yes, PVP liner will pass by The Columns (actually circle around the twin towers) after passing by PBCom, Rufino Tower (Rufino or Herrera St), RCBC Tower, Smart Tower, Makati Medical Center (MakatiMed), turn right to Buendia (Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue) and either turn right to Osmena Highway going to Nagtahan or to Bautista going to Taft Avenue. It's best to ask the conductor first before boarding the bus as not all buses pass by Taft Avenue going back to LRT Pedro Gil (herran)

    PVP bus is back and operational, it's starting point/waiting terminal is in front of SM San Lazaro (Felix Huertas corner Yuseco).
    First trip leaves at 5am, then 5.30am, then 6am and leaves at 15min interval onwards (6.15, 6.30 and so on) Mon-Fri
    For Saturday, I think first trip is 6am and then 30min interval afterwards
    Schedule is subject to change as they are still adjusting their service, they just started operational again this 2016.
    Bus route so far is via Taft/Bautista St then turns left to Gil Puyat Ave, turns right at Makati Ave then turns right again at Ayala Ave where they will start to pick up passengers back to SM San Lazaro (Loading bay in front of Makati Stock Exchange/Ayala Triangle)
    Bus fare is still P 25.00 from end to end
