Public Utility Buses Plying Metro Cebu

Currently, only two commuter bus line serves Metro Cebu, the KMK Transport Corporation and the SM-affiliated MyBus which started operating when around the time SM Seaside City opened at the South Road Properties. The KMK Bus plies the route between the City of Naga to SM City Cebu in the North Reclamation area via the N. Bacalso Avenue, turning right at Pope John Paul II Avenue towards the SM PUJ Terminal. On the return trip, it takes Pope John Paul II Avenue, turns left at A. Soriano Avenue, turns right at General Maxilom Street, then turns left at N. Bacalso Avenue, then proceeds straight to its destination in the City of Naga. Minimum fare is currently pegged at PHP 12.00.

MyBus serves more routes and has services that extend to the airport and as far south as Talisay City but most of its routes pass through either SM City Cebu at the North Reclamation Area and at SM Seaside City at the South Road Properties.

Soon to operate is the Bus Rapid Transport that will run from Barangay Bulacao in the southern part of Cebu City to Talamban in the north. The project was recently approved and is yet to be implemented.
