How to commute from Legaspi Airport

How to commute from Legaspi Airport

Bicol is very near Manila. As a matter of fact, the plane ride from Manila to Legaspi will only take around 45 minutes. 

Transportation to the Legaspi Satellite Bus Terminal or other parts of Legaspi from the airport: 

  • Tricycle
  • Jeep
  • Taxi
  •  Van for hire
  •  Hotel Coaster

Tricycle
  
Tricycles can be found inside the compound of the airport but their price ranges from Php 50 to Php 100. Keyword: Haggle. If they still insist on charging you that price then walk towards the gate of the airport. Outside the gate, you will find tricycles that charge from Php 20 to Php40 only, depending on how good your haggling skills are.

Jeep 

If you travel on a shoestring like me and you can manage to carry all you suitcases, then travel via jeepney like me where I only pay a fare of Php 8.00 going to the Central terminal in Legazpi.

How to find that jeepney?

Go out of the airport’s gate and walk towards your left (Landmark is the anchor saying welcome to Albay.) then walk straight ahead. You will find a lot of jeepneys at the end of that road. Facing that road, ride the jeepney going to the left on the other side of the road (Yes, you have to cross the road) to go to the central terminal. Fare is only Php 8.00.

Taxi

Unfortunately, there are only five (5) taxi cabs at that time when we went to Legaspi. So they are hard to come by. They use taxi meter and they are clean, fast and the fare is cheap, even cheaper than fares charged by tricycles.

Van for hire

If you are a solo traveler, it is not practical to hire these vans but if you are in a group, consisting of at least ten (10) people then negotiate with them. Price ranges from Php 500 to several thousands depending on your agreement. I even had an experience when after almost all my co-passengers were gone, a van agreed to bring me to the terminal for only Php 20.00 o saan ka pa :-P!

Hotel Coaster 
  
This mode of transportation won’t bring you to the terminal but to their respective hotels but at least it is free and you can ride a tricycle in front of the hotel. Tricycle along the highway or in Centro to the terminal would only be Php 8.00.

Enjoy your travels! Keep safe!
