Welcome to Lucena

Welcome to Lucena!

You can get here from:


Take any bus going to Manila and just get off at Lucena Grand Central Terminal. You can also take the PNR’s Bicol Express Train going to Lucena City.


  • By Bus:

Head over to any of the following Bus Terminals where you can find buses with regular trips to Lucena:

Alabang Terminal – you can take a Jac Liner, JAM Liner and N. de la Rosa bus going to Lucena. An AB Liner or Barney Autolines bus bound to Guinayangan via Lucena is also another option.

From there, you’ll be passing on the towns of Tiaong, Candelaria, and then Sariaya. From Sariaya, you will see another junction where you have to turn right, (because driving straight ahead will lead you to Tayabas) going to Lucena City.

    • Hi, Annie!

      It’s been a while since we’ve taken any of the three buses that have Lucena on their bus routes (JAM, JAC, and Lucena Lines), so we can’t tell for sure, but based on our personal experience, JAC Liner’s fleet of buses appear to be newer and better equipped (that’s just our impression). The seats were new and comfortable, the bus had adequate air-conditioning, and there was free Wi-fi. You can also pre-order Jollibee meals through the conductor which they can pick up when you reached Calamba. To be fair, Lucena Lines and JAM had decent seats and the air-conditioning was okay. Their buses felt kind of older, though, but we’re not sure if that’s just us or they really haven’t upgraded their fleet.

      We’re afraid we don’t know much about safety to comment on it, though. If you’re really concerned, you can look for news articles on the internet to see the respective track records of the said companies when it comes to safety.

    • Hi, Yam!

      Thanks for the visit.

      If you were referring to JAC buses coming from the Alimall Terminal in Cubao, the first bus leaves at 4 AM while the last one departs at 9 PM.
