This Bukidnon bus company is getting tons of attention
Let’s face it. Pabama Bus Tours and Transport Bukidnon used to be regarded as the “smallest player” among the 3 bus companies serving the Bukidnon – Cagayan de Oro route. Pabama, owned by a family based in the Municipality of Kibawe in Bukidnon, had the smallest fleet compared to Rural Transit Mindanao (formerly Bachelor Express) and Super 5.
These days, however, the small fry is now very ready to face the giants.
Pabama invaded social media by storm when they introduced their brand new, high-end units made by Chinese firm Zhong Tong. Check out this photo taken by my policeman-cousin Erwin:
The new Pabama Bukidnon buses are equipped with mini trays (just like what you see in airplanes), cup holders, comfortable captain chairs and yup, check out the individual tablets! You will definitely be kept entertained since the tablets have music, games, movies etc. You can also use your own USB (either you open your own files or you can charge your smartphones – pretty convenient!)
Here are other photos of the new Bukidnon buses that are definitely the talk of the town. All photos from the Pabama Facebook page:
The units are airconditioned and fare is pegged at Php 130.00 per person from Malaybalay City to Cagayan de Oro. I also heard that they have drinks for sale onboard!
Pabama serves the Kibawe to CDO route. The buses make pit stops at major municipalities and cities along the way including Valencia City and Malaybalay City.
