“Ang P2P ay isang paraan para ang ating mga mananakay ay magkaroon ng comfortable na biyahe (The P2P is a way for passengers to have comfortable trips). The UBE buses are compliant with the requirements of the Department of Transportation on the Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program. We are very supportive of this kind of initiative,” Transportation Assistant Secretary Manny Gonzales said in his speech during its launch at the NAIA Terminal 3 in Pasay City.

The P2P buses are Euro-5 compliant, fully air-conditioned and equipped with a global positioning system technology, WiFi connection and CCTV cameras, as well as adequate luggage racks and compartments.
