2018 BACOLOD to MANILA / MANILA to BACOLOD Ceres Schedules

I have yet to experience riding a Ceres bus from Bacolod to Manila and Manila to Bacolod. I just think it’s more convenient and faster to ride a plane, even though I much prefer land travel to air travel. But understandably, I get why some people would opt for the bus. It could be that the last-minute plane tickets are too expensive and they need to get to Bacolod or Manila as soon as possible. That’s why it’s really great that Ceres Bus Liner offers these types of trips.

Bacolod South Bus Terminal

As mentioned above, I haven’t experienced the trip personally but I’ve tried to gather as much information I could. This includes the bus schedules, the total bus fare, and the total travel time. I actually saw the bus once at the Bacolod South Bus Terminal and I’ve seen some of their promotional tarps in the past. If you are from Manila, the trip starts from the Ceres terminal in New York Cubao Avenue. If you are coming from Bacolod, the trip starts at the Bacolod South Bus Terminal.

The total fare from Bacolod to Manila and vice versa is ₱2,400. The bus departs at 5 AM from Cubao and 5 PM from Bacolod. The total travel time is around 24-26 hours as long as there are no delays when it comes to the ferries.
