BIYAHEROES: The Best Online Bus Booking Platform in Manila! Try it!

Cover

One of the toughest predicaments travelers face is how to get from Point A to Point B in the least stressful way possible. Deal breakers include the cost of travel, time convenience, and accessibility of transport. Biyaheroes, an online booking transportation solution, is easily a DIY Traveller’s best friend.

With the sheer number of people taking public transport each day, commuting comes with its own set of nightmares: long lines, the hassle of physically purchasing your tickets, and unreliable departure schedules. With Biyaheroes, you can travel to over 20 local destinations with a few clicks of a button and minus the stress!

Here’s how you can become a bonafide Biyahero!

Biyaheroes started as a casual conversation about commuters' woes over lunch two years ago. Later that year, the idea came to fruition and now provides one of the most cost-efficient ways to travel in the country.

At face value, Biyaheroes is a streamlined solution that tackles the daunting nature of public transport. In the midst of the convenience it provides, however, the startup also aims to promote local communities through tourism via sustainable modes of transport and modern technologies.

While not offered yet, Biyaheroes has plans of tapping into local potential by offering activities, accommodations, and even the best in local dining. Direct bookings will also be made available at hotel desks instead of online! The company hopes to add these awesome features by the 1st quarter of next year.

By eliminating the use of company-owned transport, Biyaheroes can help you get where you want to be with the help of their travel partners and local guides within your destination! This intrinsically provides a more genuine travel experience and allows travelers to be in control of their own itineraries.

Team OAP along with co-founder and PR Chieftain of Biyaheroes, Mirra Reyes, rode CODA Lines all the way from Manila to the Mountain Province. Acting as their primary guinea pigs for their upcoming booking features, we got to experience Sagada’s mystical caves, cloud-filled vistas, unique death rituals, and tasty northern dishes!
