Effective today, September 1, 2021, the new UBEx route will include the LRT-1 EDSA Station as well as other destinations: SM Mall of Asia, Ayala Malls Manila Bay, Paranaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX), and NAIA Terminals 1-3.
The designated pickup and drop-off points for LRT-1 EDSA are located at the Southbound entrance of the station.
Through the LRMC-UBex partnership, commuters who normally take several modes of transport to reach their destinations can travel faster by taking the train and 24-seater premium airport bus service at an affordable cost.
The first trip of the UBEx bus begins at 6:00AM daily, and the last trip is at 7:00PM, with a bus arriving every 30 minutes.
Passengers can also pay for both LRT-1 and premium bus rides using a beep™ card.
“Passengers will have a seamless transportation from LRT-Line 1 to SM MOA, Ayala Malls Manila Bay, PITX and NAIA Terminals and vice versa,” says UBex President Gabriel David.
“Passengers of NAIA Terminals will greatly benefit from the connection of NAIA Airport to LRT-Line 1,” he added.
As a promotional offer from September 1 until October 1 2021, the minimum fare (fare for the shortest distance) starts at P25.
After the promotion period, this rate will become P50.
“This partnership with UBEx is a step towards achieving integrated mobility for Filipino commuters,” according to LRMC President and CEO Juan Alfonso.
LRMC is collaborating with more mobility service providers and promoting its services together to ensure seamless connections, he concluded.
