Bicol Isarog Transport System Inc. is a bus company that was established in March of 2011 by its President and General manager Mr. Geraldo C. Abano and Executive Vice-President & Treasurer Jose Marco H. del Pilar. The idea of setting up BITSI started when Mr. Abano and Mr. del Pilar acquired Isarog Line on March 24, 2011 from the Cu family of Naga City which was represented by Steve Cu. After this, BITSI was formally incorporated in the SEC on April 19, 2011. While operating Isarog Line, BITSI then acquired RSL Bus Transport on April 7, 2011 from Governor Joseph Cua of Catanduanes who was signified by his daughter Elaine Cua. Then on June 27, 2011, the company was able to obtain their third and biggest acquisition, Penafrancia Tours & Travel Transportation, Inc. from brothers Bonifacio L. Cu, Jr. and Bonifacio Bryan L. Cu, also from Naga city. Though the company is newly formed, our bus lines whose routes are from Manila and all over the Bicol province and vice versa have been in the business for over 20 years and now the strongest.
Our management team and its staff holds office at 151 Aurora Blvd corner G. Reyes St. Bgy. Salapan San Juan City and together with our fully trained mechanics and technicians, we have formed the fastest growing bus company that moves passengers to and from Bicol. We have terminals and booking offices in Alabang , Cubao and Pasay in Manila and, Bulan, Caramoan, Irosin, Legaspi, Nabua, Naga, Sorsogon, Tabacco and Virac in the Bicol Province.
Starting with only 18 buses, the company was able to increase its fleet to 100 buses in less than 6 months. And with the growing demand for transport service to the Bicol province, we have customized our buses to different types of target market. Our buses include Economy 2×3 seats, the Deluxe 2×2 seats, Royal 2×1 seats or commonly known as the lazy boy seats and the recently added, the sleeper bus, which can accommodate up to 20 passengers who can roll, curl and lie down comfortably throughout the duration of the whole trip.
With the developing tourism in the Bicol region and the expanding market of their local products and delicacies, the company wishes to be part of that growth. Our chartered trips that bring tourists or locals to and from hotels, resorts and the beautiful islands of Bicol will be one of our major and specialized services. The timely delivery of local products, baggage and cargo to other regions at the most cost efficient way will also be part of our thrusts. All these services will hopefully make us the biggest and most preferred bus company in South Luzon.
Unlike other bus companies, the management and stockholders of BITSI boasts off its more than 50 years of leadership in the industry. The experience, expertise, financial capacity and track record of our management set us apart from the rest of the players in the industry. Together with the Bicolanos, we aim to be the top choice of transport service in Southern Luzon. We commit to providing only the best services to the Filipino people.
In Bicol Isarog, we give high importance to comfort, security and affordability.
