     Title: CERES Aircon Bus Schedule: Cebu to Hagnaya & Bantayan Island Philipines

CERES Aircon Bus Schedule: Cebu to Hagnaya & Bantayan Island Philipines - Photo of the Day

The current schedule says 10 buses are running daily that are capable of making the Ferry Boats on time in Hagnaya; 7 of them are the more comfortable aircon, with DVD movies on tap for the trip.

Travel time is 3hrs. aprox. in normal traffic, and 2.5hrs. travel time is the exception for the very early morning trips with not much road traffic, and  the drop off point is SM Mall in Cebu City where you can easily get a taxi to your hotel or destination.

Cebu North Bus Terminal Shedule: 5:30 am, 6:30am, 7:30am, 8am, 8:30am, 9am, 10am, 11am, 12noon, 1pm (note these times are only estimates; they do change, so plan to wing it if your bus has left earlier/later than is listed here)

*Other buses that will not arrive in Hagnaya in time for the last Ferry of the day are: 2pm, 3pm, 4pm, 5pm & 5:30pm. (if you must take one of these that won't make the last Hagnaya Ferry of the day, just get a hotel room in BOGO Cebu, a few minutes ride from Hagnaya, and take the early morning Ferry boat in Hagnaya the next day)

Best Advice: WAIT for an aircon bus, as the regular buses are open window older buses that take in all the road dirt, polluted air and vehicle exhaust, making you a dirty sweaty mess upon arrival in Cebu City, not to mention choking your lungs out.

Ferry Boats Santa Fe to Hagnaya: Running 5am-5:30pm, there are always buses waiting for the boat passengers, so no worries there, although you might only be able to catch a regular non-aircon bus at certain times of the day...that said, I'd always wait for an aircon bus - even if it meant an extra hour's wait time at Hagnaya Pier.

See you on the Island,
