Thousands of buses ply the roads of Metro Manila every day. Provincial buses also stream from northern and southern Luzon, offering connections to major points in the region.
The bulk of bus terminals offering provincial routes are mainly found in the area in the heart of Quezon City (Cubao), although there are other many other remote terminals throughout the metro. The lack of a central bus terminal is due to the large number of bus companies operating in the region, all of which have their own stations.
There are three classes of buses running to and from major areas around Metro Manila and Luzon, namely, air-conditioned buses, non air-conditioned buses, and tourist buses.
