You’re Going to bantayan Island via Hagnaya Port
Note that there is a municipality located north of Hagnaya Port called Daanbantayan. The name is obviously similar to Bantayan. 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.
Cebu City North Bus Terminal Info
The bus terminal has vendors who sell food and drink if you are hungry. There is a CR (comfort room) at the back of the terminal building. Make sure you have some coins as it is a pay toilet. The bus terminal has a seating area, but you shouldn’t have to wait long for a bus to depart.
Note that if you arrive at the bus terminal by taxi, the driver will ask you to pay 10 pesos in order for him to drop you off inside the gates. If you don’t want to pay the 10 pesos fee, the taxi driver will drop you off outside the gates at the curb. We recommend you pay the 10 pesos and get dropped off inside the gates of the bus terminal.
