Baliwag Transit, Inc. is owned by Maria Victoria Santiago Vda. de Tengco or popularly known in Baliwag as "Viuda" or "Nanay", a native of Baliuag, Bulacan. Before the bus company was born in the 1960s, she had a hat business in Baliuag and so, the logo of the bus was a hat.

It is presided by the elder son of Doña Victoria, Mr. Joselito S. Tengco.
Issues and criticisms
Baliwag Transit was known for some complaints made by some passengers due to some discrepancies of the employees. For instance, arrogant conductors are taking advantage to their passengers through fare overcharging, refusal to entertain a passenger for entry even the bus is not fully loaded with passengers (reaching the maximum seating capacity) at any bus stops, and the most notorious of all was making an act of lasciviousness to some female passengers by asking for their cellphone numbers.
Baliwag Transit Inc. has the fewest major accidents.
Numbering system and bus coding
Baliwag Transit Inc. has initialized its new numbering system for their fleet. All of their past and brand new units are numbered according to the date when they are bought. For example, a Hino RK Grand ECHO model 2011 (body is built by Pilipinas Hino) is numbered by 1100 and end with 1199. Likewise you can see other numbering system like 2672 etc. because they are also using the "2 and 6" representing the year model 2006, 2826 for the 2008 model and so on. Also, one of its sister companies are using the same number system, the Golden Bee Transport and Logistics Inc., like the one of its units, the MAN Almazora 18.250 model 2009, which the number ranges from 910, to 965, 55 buses in total.
The Baliwag Transit Inc. and Golden Bee Transport and Logistics Inc. has already bought a numerous amount of buses and it is numbered as the 15th Series (15XX) BTI buses. The Baliwag Transit Inc. didn't used the 14th Series because they bought the buses last November 2014 and considered it to name 15th Series (2015 Series buses) rather than 14th Series (2014 Series buses). They are planning again to buy a 50 bus units to their trusted suppliers: Pilipinas Hino, MAN, and Daewoo this coming year 2015. There are some sayings that they will try to use Kia Granbird buses.
Stations and vehicles
Like other bus companies in the Philippines with exclusive terminals, Baliwag Transit has its own stations. These are located in vital points along the bus routes, where potential passengers can easily converge for boarding.
Baliwag Transit has also opened a new subsidiary company, Golden Bee Transport and Logistics, Inc., which services the routes Pasay-Cubao to Baliwag, Bulacan, Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija and San Jose City, Nueva Ecija and vice versa.
Currently, they recently opened their Pasay Terminal last December 14, 2014 and it is now fully operational and fully owned by the Baliwag Transit Inc. and their sisterships, Golden Bee Transport and Logistics Corporation.
