When I posted the news about the PNR Bicol Express that it was already operational, a lot of people inquired about the train fare rate and schedule. Finally, I was able to get the information on the train fare rate from a friend and posting it here for everyone's reference. The information on the train schedule from the PNR Wikipedia page says there is a daily trip that leaves Manila at 6:30p.m. and arrives at Naga City at around 4:00a.m. the next day. Travel time is about 10 hours.
I'm sure that traveling to the south is now more comfortable and convenient with the first class and sleeper coaches. I hope the Bicol Express will reach Legazpi City by this year. This will really be "bliss" for all the Bicolanos and tourists going to the south.
I just have a question : Can people going to some parts of Visayas and Mindanao use the Bicol Express as alternate mode of transportion and route? I think this will make their travel more comfortable and faster up to Legaspi City, and from here they can take a connecting boat or ship ride to the different islands of Visayas and to the big island of Mindanao. Can somebody comment on this please. Thanks!
