Expanded UBE Express Makati route welcomed

WITH the intent of making the mobility of commuters more convenient and dignified, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) has welcomed the route expansion of the UBE Express Airport Bus Service to connect the Makati Central Business District with the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). 

“This route expansion of the UBE Express is a strategic addition especially for prospective patrons who may have intended business engagements or may desire to access the business district of Makati,” DoTr Assistant Secretary Cherie Mercado said.

“We need to institute ways of making mobility more inclusive and dignified by widening interconnectivity and providing more transportation alternatives available for everyone," Mercado added. 

UBE Express buses have started last April 5 to stop at hotels within Ayala Center, including The Ascott, Dusit Thani, Holiday Inn and Suites, The Peninsula Manila, Shangri-la, New World, and Fairmont Makati. 

The express buses will pickup and drop off passengers daily from NAIA Terminals 1 to 4 to the Ayala Center hotels.

UBE Express is also planning on a new UBE Express hub soon from Park Square in Makati to accommodate passengers in easy accessing and connecting with other modes of public transportation available.  

UBE Express is partnering with Ayala Center Estate Association (ACEA) and the Ayala Malls for this route expansion plan. 

Along with this, the Ayala Malls also introduced "EasyRide", an ongoing project of the mall chain giant that will provide convenient access to various modes of public transportation to their mall-goers and shoppers.  

“This partnership signals the willingness of the business community to help the administration form realistic solutions to address issues such as transport accessibility and terminal congestion in our airports. We welcome these positive efforts and wish for their further collaboration with us,” Mercado ended.  

UBE Express plans to expand the area of coverage in order to include other major areas in Metro Manila.
