Workers of business process outsourcing (BPO) companies in Cebu will soon find it easier to commute to work with the opening of a new bus route in the city. Vallacar Transit, operator of Ceres buses, and Cebu Holdings Inc have agreed to deploy buses to the Cebu Business Park (CBP) and the Cebu IT Park (CITP) to address the transportation needs of call center workers. The buses ply the Cebu South Bus Terminal-CBP-CITP-CBP-Cebu North Bus Terminal route and vice versa. The buses will have a 15 to 30-interval and will collect P25 for the first five kilometers and additional P1.60 per succeeding kilometer, according to Dale mark Carangan, administrative manager of Vallacar Transit. The long term plan is to extend the route to Carcar City in the south and Danao City in the north.
