How To Get From Angeles City to Subic Bay (SBMA)
This is an alternative plan for escape from Angeles City! It’s very inexpensive to get from Angeles to Subic. One of the most cost efficient and comfortable is to take the UV Express Shuttle. This is a van that holds approx. 10 to 15 persons with air-condition comfort. The vans will vary with quality and age dependent on the operator. Just keep an eye for a decent looking van.
The van that you are looking to board is going to Olongapo. Let the driver know that you need to be let off at Harbor Point Mall – located just outside of the bridge going to Olongapo. The driver will let you off at the specified drop-off post at the mall. It’s as simple as that!
Cost at the time in 2017 was 130 pesos. That is about $2.50 USD. Not too bad for a 2 hour, comfortable trip!
Getting there from Angeles is just as simple. Just flag down a Trike driver and mention that you are looking to go to Dau (or Mabalacat as it’s also known) Bus Terminal PUV. Note that this is located just outside of the main entrance of the bus terminal proper. So make sure that the driver does not take you deep inside of the terminal.
The cost for the trike drive to the terminal is approximately 150 pesos. They will of course try to charge you more! Just work (ok haggle) the price to be something you are comfortable paying.
