Baler, Aurora: A Joyful Joyride With Genesis’ Joy Bus

Genesis Joy Bus Baler Aurora

Traveling through the mountainous region of Nueva Vizcaya on the way to Aurora Province was made convenient thanks to continuous development of roads and daily trips care off Genesis Bus Lines. And with the company’s latest addition to their fleet, the journey to the heart of Aurora Province was even made better with a  “first class” coach called “Joy Bus”

Adding to Genesis’ arsenal of regular air-conditioned 40-50 seater, and 28-seater deluxe buses bound for Baler is the 28-seater executive coach Joy Bus. Welcoming passengers on board is the bus stewardess giving them a brief walk through with Joy Bus features and guiding passengers to their assigned seats where a rusty orange blanket and a small yellow pillow printed with the Joy Bus logo await the traveler. Ensuring the comfort of the passengers are the coach’s wide seats that will cradle its temporary owner to sleep.

Travel time was cut short as the Joy Bus in its vivid blue coat, cruises NLEX, SCTEX, and National Highways minimizing stopovers to 2 or none. A bottle of mineral water and a cupcake are served for snacks. Nature’s call stopovers could be avoided with the built-in comfort room. Both features reduce 2 hours from the 8-hour average travel duration.

Joys Bus passengers are never kept far away from their social networking sites, the day’s news and daily updates with the coach’s on-board WIFI connection. Just ask the hospitable attendant to turn on the router and you’re a zap away from an internet connection.

Reservations made guarantees and grants passengers a seat instead of going to the terminal hoping for an available seat. Calling Genesis Bus Terminals will provide inquirer with further instructions.

The three hundred peso difference with the regular price is paid off with comfort and time saved. Deluxe buses and executive coaches may be a little expensive for a “Biyaherong Barat” (cheap traveler) but hey, it was worth the experience.

    • Hello Virgie.

      Yes, it’s safe naman. Bus lang. Tapos daan na lang po kayo ng tourist information center nila sa may munisipyo po siguro or provincial capitol, para ma-assist nila kayo sa itinerary. =) Ganon po ginagawa ko pag first time ako sa isang lugar.

  10. Hi there,
    Just want to ask if ever we bring my daughter and niece with us,our family is planning to go to Baguio, do they still count as an adult fare? Like my niece which is 2 years old and will not occupy another seat?


    • Hi Cerila, sorry po, hindi po ako affiliated with Genesis, I cannot address your concern. But you could check their website, baka nandun po yung schedule nila and mga contact information. Pasensya na po.

  12. Hi, I booked Joybus this April, using their Online reservation site.. and I think this is convenient for you guys.

    Just Sign-up, follow the instruction and boom, done. super quick, You just need to pay your balance thru dragonpay or BPI, and print the eTicket . (there’s a 25 peso reservation fee)

    I do hope these information will be useful for you guys. Thanks for the info about Baler btw.🙂
