Bus trips to Bicol, Visayas fully booked as Holy Week starts
Tickets for provincial bus trips from Araneta Center Bus Port in Cubao, Quezon City to Bicol and Visayas from Sunday, March 25, to Friday, March 30, were already fully booked at the start of the Holy Week, according to a report on Unang Balita by Jay Sabale on Monday.
However, there may be extra buses available as soon as buses arrive back in Quezon City from the provinces.
Passengers intending to go to their home provinces by bus need to go to the bus port to reserve tickets as reservations by phone are not allowed.
On Sunday, more than 6,000 people flocked to the Araneta Center Bus Port to take provincial buses to their hometowns.
Management expects that more passengers will flock to the bus port on Wednesday in time for the non-working holiday on Holy Thursday, March 29.
Filipinos traditionally go to their hometowns for the annual Holy Week break which will end on Easter Sunday. —KG, GMA News
