MARIVELES, Bataan-Through the effort of Gov Abet S Garcia, a bus company opened its new line from this industrial town all the way directly to Tuguegarao in Cagayan.

As this developed, Gov Garcia said that the bus company is also mulling the putting up of its trips from Port of Orion to Olongapo city.

“The Victory bus is studying this route (Orion port to Olongapo city) if it is feasible,” Gov Garcia told this writer.

If this pushes through, commuters coming from MOA (Mall of Asia) in Pasay can take only two hours to Olongapo city, shortening its trip from four to five hours.

MOA to Orion port via Ferry boat, takes only an hour while Orion to Olongapo takes only an hour via SCTEx.

Earlier, top management officials of Victory bus sought the help of the governor in opening their new route for Mariveles.

The governor immediately agreed it and extended a helping hand to the Victory’s proposal as this will serve the peope of Bataan and the investors.

Mayor Jocelyn P Castañeda welcomed the new bus line trip here as this will give more comport to the workers coming from said routes.

Eighty percent more or less of the residents here who worked in AFAB are from neighboring provinces such as Region 1, (Ilocos); Region 2 ( Cagayan) and others.
