Last update: January 28, 2018
While the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is on the works, SM Prime and Jam Liner launched a consortium of public transportation via the Cebu myBus not just to somehow alleviate the worsening traffic in Cebu but also to accommodate the public to pass through Mactan International Airport and South Road Properties (SRP) where the new SM Seaside City Cebu is located.
To start with 33 buses initially, there will be a total of 77 myBuses moving around the city. These buses are manufactured by Volvo, Mercedez Benz and Daewoo.
The Cebu myBus is PWD-friendly, GPS and CCTV-enabled making it a safe, secure and friendly transport service around Cebu. It can can accommodate 42 to 90 passengers, including standing passengers.
MyBus / ePLUS Card
Starting January 15, 2018, ON-BOARD TAPPING (Automated Fare Collection) shall be implemented on ALL routes. For the convenience of all, myBus encorages the use of 1 myBus card per passenger. In the meantime, multiple tapping on a single card will still be allowed.
Cash will still be accepted in the meantime, to give time to others to acquire the MyBus card. However, this is only allowed until May 2018.
For PWDs, Senior Citizens and Students, register your cards to avail discounts at SM Seaside Office or SM Cinemas at both SM City Cebu and SM Seaside City.
