How to commute to Talisay?

Postby lncc » Tue Feb 19, 2008 1:31 pm

Now that the boat is at TLYC, I may just want to leave the car at home so the firstmate can go do her chours while I'm out sailing :). So how does one get to Talisay anyway from EDSA?

There's a bus line that travels all the way to Tagaytay City, then take the jeep that travels the Talisay Road to TLYC. Call Mermaid, she knows best.

Public transpo route via Cubao - Tanauan - Talisay - TLYC

Postby weremermaid » Wed Feb 20, 2008 4:44 am

source
From EDSA early AM, there are buses from Cubao heading for Tanauan. There is a bus depo right beside Ali Mall, Cubao, it is on the side of the old COD or Marikina Shoe Expo.

If riding from Cubao, the bus fills partially at 5am and gets going at 6am (probably other trips at an earlier time), runs down EDSA. I remember it picked up passengers along EDSA specially from the stretch before to the Magallanes MRT station. It may try to pick up passengers under Ayala MRT in that case and along Greenhills as long as there are no MMDA railings. Just tell them to drop you off at the transport area heading to Talisay.

Tanauan
By about 7am, they boot your sleeping self off nicely but firmly near a corner in Tanauan. Perpendicular to the main road in the corner is the tricycle line. Take one tricycle (pay full fare to rent it 'solo' I think P30, if not it will wait for many people) to take you to the jeep stop to Talisay.

Jeep stop is a biggish lumpy yard (muddy in wet weather, dust bowl in summer) and the next jeep in line rolls up to take passengers, so wait about 10-15mins before it finally gets moving. Jeep ride cost was under P200, maybe under P150 or less, can't remember right now.

Heading for/ and into Talisay
The jeepney takes an hour+ thru a very scenic route (and familiar route, if you've previously passed thru there by car) thru gently rolling hills. People board and depart throughout the route, the last stragglers in Talisay town's main road or in my case, I asked to be brought to the Talisay Market.

Went shopping for breakfast and fresh meal ingredients since I already had the cookset. If you know anything about cooking squash flower veggies, they have it, but they do have fish, kakanin and lots of nice veggies.

To TYLC, at last
Then it's a trike ride (est P30-50) from the market or Talisay town to TLYC.

_________
Note: Don't buy the ground coffee from Talisay market BTW, it's lousy - wimpy flavor and no kick whatsoever. Best to bring your own pre-ground Barako from reliable sources and of course your moka/ french press/whathaveyou coffee making thing.

Note 2: Was traveling with my big mountaineering backpack (had my camping, cooking, sailing gear, etc), crutches and 2-piece kayak paddles but these all survived the trip in trike and jeepney unscathed. Much commentary in the market place though.

Beware the tritran scam(according to at least 2-3 reports on the net)
A “raket” known to be being perpetrated by Tritran/JAM bus company since they have a lot of buses:
- All fares are collected first
- driver declares there is something wrong
- passengers are asked to disembark and ride the passing buses
- bus driver goes back to EDSA area or Alabang to pick “other” passengers
- THEREFORE, their total fare collection is twice the capacity
