Partas is the only company offering direct bus trips from San Juan, La Union to Manila.

The pick-up point is at Sebay Surf Central Resort. If you’re checked in nearby, you can just walk to Sebay. If not, you can either take a jeepney for around 10 PHP ($0.20) or a tricycle for 50 PHP ($1) – 120 ($2.20), depending on the distance of your hotel from the pick-up point.

Only two trips are available daily so it might be best to buy your tickets earlier in the day.

If you’re travelling on a weekend or a busy season, you can also book your tickets online at least a week before. This way you’ll be assured of a good seat back to the metro. A 1st class express bus ticket costs 790 PHP ($15) if you book through the link below.

Check Available Bus Tickets

If you miss this schedule, there are also buses passing through the national highway, but take note that seats are not guaranteed. You can also check the bus terminal in San Fernando, La Union by riding a jeepney for 10 PHP ($0.20). Buses from San Fernando to Manila depart almost every hour from 10:00 to 17:00.

There are also local vans near the bus terminal but there’s no assurance that these would take the expressways, which can cost you an additional 1-2 hour travel time. The legroom and seats in vans are also uncomfortable for long rides.
