How to get to Genesis Bus Terminal Pasay
The Genesis Bus Terminal Pasay is located right next to Giselle’s Park Plaza. Their main office is also within the vicinity. To get there, you may take the LRT-1 train until EDSA station or the MRT train until Taft station. Whichever you choose, it’ll only be a short walk to get to the Genesis Bus Terminal Pasay. If you’re coming from Mall of Asia, take a Libertad or Pasay Rotonda jeep from the MOA circle and ask to be dropped off at Taft.
How to get to Genesis Bus Terminal Cubao

The Manila to Baler route is available only from Cubao. Regular buses start operating at 3:00 AM until 7:30 AM with approximately one hour intervals. Genesis Bus’ more premium coach is the Joy Bus which leaves at 11:00 PM, 12:00 AM, 1:00 AM, and 5:30 AM. Brace yourself for a six hour ride. But since the departure times are quite late in the night, you’ll probably just sleep through your commute! Manila to Baler has a more limited schedule, guarantee your seats by booking online.
