Baliwag Transit Inc. is a bus transportation system in the Philippines with offices and terminals in various parts of Luzon. It mainly services routes to and from Metro Manila and Northern and Central Luzon. Most of its terminals are located in Nueva Ecija, where some of its terminals are located in San Jose City, Baliuag and Cabanatuan City.

Etymology[edit]

Baliwag Transit Inc. was said to be named after its specific place—present-day Baliuag, Bulacan (It is spelled in Filipino as Baliwag) where it came from.

History[edit]

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. The company grew as years went by and became a member of the Baliwag Group of Companies. The children and grandchildren of Doña Victoria manage the company. It is presided by the eldest son of Doña Victoria, Mr. Joselito S. Tengco.

Incidents[edit]

Though the company has not been involved in major accidents, cases have been filed against it in the past, where its passenger buses bumped another vehicle while en route to a provincial stop.[1][2]

Numbering system and bus coding[edit]

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 16.290 HOCL, 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).

Stations and vehicles[edit]

Like other bus companies in the Philippines with exclusive terminals, Baliwag Transit has its own stations like in the city of San Jose and Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija, also in Baliuag, Malolos and Hagonoy, Bulacan and in Metro Manila like Cubao, Quezon City and Grace Park, Caloocan City. These are located in vital points along the bus routes, where potential passengers can easily converge for boarding.

Baliwag transit and Golden Bee Transport and Logistics Corp is utilizing Hino, Nissan Diesel, King Long, MAN, Mitsubishi Fuso, Daewoo as their new units.

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.

They recently opened their Pasay Terminal located in 16th cor. Don Carlos St., Brgy. 164, Pasay City last December 14, 2014 and it is now fully operational and fully owned by the Baliwag Transit Inc. and their sister company, Golden Bee Transport and Logistics Corporation.
