Passengers can enjoy the newly purchased 24-seater air-conditioned Mercedes Benz buses complete with WiFi and CCTV security systems for a maximum fare of P300. There's also an introductory fee of P150 for passengers traveling until December 2016. Tickets can be purchased at the Ube Express airport booths or by booking online.
Meanwhile, ABS-CBN noted that the NAIA Expressway will be open for motorists by September 22. The NAIA Expressway will provide a direct route from NAIA Terminals 1 and 2 to parts of the south including SM Mall of Asia and the Cavite Expressway. Motorists will be charged a toll fee of P35 to access the expressway.
Two other road-decongestion projects linking NAIA to other expressways will be completed by December and January.
