Shuttle service to Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (Clark)

I noticed that people are stumbling upon my blog while searching for information regarding the shuttle going to the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport in Clark, Pampanga. Though I have never been to the Clark Airport nor rode the shuttle, I have read about them when I was considering taking Tiger Airways to Singapore.

The shuttle from SM Megamall is provided by Philtranco. According to their website, the shuttle schedule are as follows:

TO: Clark , Pampanga
FROM: MegaMall

0700 AM
1100 AM
1200 NN
0800 PM*
0700 AM
1100 AM
1200 NN

TO: MegaMall, Manila
FROM: Clark

1230 PM
0530 PM
0600 PM
0130 AM*

1230 PM
0530 PM
0600 PM

* – Except Monday

All busses are airconditioned, and travel time is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. The shuttle bus is parked behind Building A of SM Megamall, in front of the entrance near Surplus Shop (think Toy Kingdom, The Soup Kitchen, Powerbooks. That end of Mega A). The fare for a one-way ride costs Php300.

Apart from Tiger Airways, Air Asia also flies to and from Diosdado Macapagal International Airport.

    Wow…the cost isn’t too bad for a one way. I’d take a shuttle for that price anyday. It beats riding in the jeepney.

    Airconditioned = heaven.

  2. […] with my budget. That is primarily because flying via Tiger in the Philippines meant having to go to Clark. Even with the shuttle service from Megamall, I still see it as a hassle, particularly since I live […]

  3. […] So if you’re itching to see this superjumbo in action, head on to Clark, since I don’t think there will be a public viewing at the NAIA. Philtranco has a shuttle from SM Megamall to the Clark Airport. Click here to view the schedule. […]

    the philtranco shuttle is too expensive.. you can ride a bus in recto (d.jose lrt staion)via philippine rabbit to angeles.. it only costs P115 (P92 for students/seniors).. then you can just ride a jeep to the airport.. if you are willing to.. hehe..

      Talaga dyan sa Clark, biktima din ako dyan, ilang beses na akong bumyahi using NAIA with my documents, pero nang minsan gumamit ako ng clark hindi daw puede and mga docs ko, no visa required naman sa mga ASEAN countries members. Return ticket lang ang kailangan. Na hold pa ako ng Mr Lapid dyan sa immigration. Napilitan akong magbayad ng travel tax, na dati di na ako hinanapan sa NAIA.

      • nina says:

        That’s sad to hear. Onga, return ticket lang naman ang kailangan, specially if you’re just going for a holiday. No other documents needed dapat.

        As for the travel tax, it depends din naman sa airline. Most of the budget airlines kasi, hindi included yung travel tax sa fare, kaya kailangan pang bayaran sa airport. But for regular airlines naman like Philippine Airlines or Singapore Airlines, kasama na sa ticket yung travel tax, kaya no need to pay sa airport.

    My wife’e Auntie supposed o visit us here in Singapore for her to relax and unwind after all she deserves it.. The problem is she was declined to go here. In short YANG MGA PUTANGINANG MGA IMMIGRATION OFFICER N YAN DENIED HER FROM GETTING HER… THE ONLY REASON THAT MADA FUCKING IMMIGRATION OFFICER GIVE HER IS THAT SHE DONT HAVE ANY RELATIVE IN SINGAPORE AND DOCUMENTS THAT SHE SHOWN IS NOT VALID.. by the way its just happen recently Jan 8,2010. Ang masakit kc minaliit pa cya na pagaalagain lang daw cya d2 ehh APO nya kaya ung anak ko and that the reason why she want to stay is to visit her Grand daugther that she never seen after 3.5 yrs after giving birth. Eto p nde daw namen kaya ipasyal or itour and Tita ko. Buti n lang wala ako dun kung nde nasampal ko ng cheque book at cash SGD pati na cards ko. Alam nyo Mga IMMIGRATION Officer kayo p mayabang n mag hold… You don’t have the right to judge people. Immagine a 45 yrs old female what can bad things can she still do in Singapore huh?

    Ayaw nyo p ibiigay mga name nyo s kanya kasi ano ayaw nyo macomplain? Kung sino man kayong mga hinayupak kayo ehh nde p t u tapos uuwe ako at magkikita tayo, then will see how ……

    This is a nightmare in CLARK maraming mga ungas n mayayabang n nag papower tripping so sana magkaroon ng action ito from our new Government.
