History[edit]

Viron Transportation Co., Inc. ("Viron" originates from "VIRgilio RONdaris") is related to the former Times Transit (because it is owned by their father Santiago Rondaris). It once used Superior Coach-bodied International Harvester Loadstar and early S-Series—essentially the same specs as those of Times Transit but with different livery: cream with green and red stripes and green-colored fonts; plus rims painted red with green borders plus illuminated logo on the roof. They also operated Hino buses with "Bustler" bodies built under license from UK coachbuilders Plaxton by Manila Motor Works. Nowadays it is using and mostly relying on its newer rebodied Mitsubishi Fuso, Hino RF, Mercedes Benz and King Long buses. Their Loadstar and S-Series coaches were stored at Pozorrubio, Pangasinan, in front of Dominion Bus Line's Terminal (owned by his sister Virginia Rondaris-Mendoza); and were recently sold to a collector for about PhP60,000 per bus.

Once only limited to the second district of Ilocos Sur. It has expanded to the first district of the province and beyond; and has occupied the former Times Transit compound in Vigan (near the ISECO Vigan Sub-Office, behind Mira Hills) after Times' collapse, and serves as its terminal there. It has also stop-over terminals/garages in San Fernando, La Union and Narvacan, Ilocos Sur. Starting May 20, 2013, Viron Transit will be using the front of the terminal formerly used by Times located along Quezon Avenue in Vigan, with the existing Dominion Bus Lines terminal (which is a former garage for Times buses) located at the back.

Fleet[edit]

Viron Transit is utilizing Mitsubishi Fuso, Hino, Mercedes Benz, King Long and Daewoo buses at present, totalling 120 units (including those from Dominion Bus Lines).
