Cebu City North Bus Station
From Mactan-Cebu International Airport, the taxi fare is approximately 160-180 pesos to get to the North Bus Station in Cebu City. It will take about 30 minutes to get there.
From the seaport, the taxi fare is approximately 100 pesos to get to the North Bus Station. It will take about 15 minutes to get there.
Upon arrival, proceed to the row of yellow Ceres buses on the right side of the building.
As of May 2017, this is where the air-con buses are parked which travel to Hagnaya Port and Bantayan Municipality.
Look for the sign that says STA FE / BANTAYAN.
NON-Air Con Bus (Cheap Seats)
If you want to take a non air-con bus, they are typically parked on the left side of the building.
Look for the sign that says HAGNAYA / LAMBUSAN.
You’re Going to Hagnaya Port
Note that sometimes the signs inside the bus will say Hagnaya, Bantayan, Santa Fe, or even Bogo City.
Just ask one of the terminal personnel for the correct bus to Hagnaya Port and let them know you are going to Bantayan Island.
Also note that there is a municipality located north of Hagnaya Port called Daanbantayan. That’s not where you need to go.
Buses Leave Every 30 Minutes During the Day
The regular buses leave about every thirty minutes or so. You don’t have to wait very long once you board.
You don’t need to purchase a ticket ahead of time. Just grab a seat.
Once the bus gets underway, the assistant driver will hand you a ticket and collect the fare later in the journey.
