Genesis Bus Lines is a transportation company with routes to some Central and Northern Luzon provinces. Destinations from Manila are Balanga and Mariveles in Bataan, La Union, Baguio, Cabanatuan in Nueva Ecija and, Baler and Casiguran in the Aurora Province. Genesis Manila terminals are in Kamias, EDSA, a few meters from Baliwag Transit, and in Pasay. Most taxi drivers know their terminals so one just have to tell what terminal are you going.
I’ll try to keep you posted with their schedule and rates every time I take the bus. Best thing to do is to confirm schedules and fares by contacting their terminals. Here are the phone numbers and schedules:
