2020 Ceres Schedule & Fare: Bacolod to Dumaguete

27 comments

I used to travel always from Bacolod to Dumaguete via Mabinay by Ceres bus for work back in 2013, just after I graduated from college. I’ve long resigned but I still go there to meet up with old friends or for connecting trips to Bohol. I wasn’t writing then and it’s only recently that I’ve made it a habit to take pictures of schedules whenever I travel. There are trips every day and the buses will travel via Kabankalan City and the town of Mabinay.

There are two types of buses and you can either ride the aircon or non-airconditioned ones depending on the time of departure. However, even if the Ceres schedule says otherwise, don’t be surprised if the aircon bus is unavailable for some reason as that can happen sometimes.
