Are you thinking of doing your own P500 project day tour?
Well, who am I to stop you from enjoying and exploring?
While to some veteran travelers and commuters, this may seem like a really easy thing to do – commuting from Manila to Los Baños – but, for promdies (slang for people who live in the provinces – which I am, since I live in Rizal) like me, I have had no idea how to get to Los Baños by commute.
There are two roads to Laguna, either by going through Antipolo and Tanay that runs into Rizal towns like Pililia and Jala Jala before Laguna or going through SLEX. Since I don’t know of any buses that ply the Antipolo and Tanay route, I opted for the SLEX route.
There are buses in Cubao and Buendia that go to Laguna, mainly to Sta. Cruz and then going into Batangas or Quezon.
Make sure to take the bus that goes to Sta. Cruz, Laguna.
Buses that go through Los Baños include Green Star, HM and BLTB (Batangas, Laguna, Tayabas Bus).
Make sure to get down at Caltex so it’ll only be a short walk before you get to Jolibee which is at the main crossing or junction of Los Baños.
The Green Star Bus to Los Baños cost P99 while the bus going back to Manila costs P89 (May, 2011).
Don’t forget to drop by IRRI and Flat Rocks.
