The standard fare for the Trinoma-Glorietta 5 route is P55. For the SM North-Megamall route, the standard fare is P40.

We hope that commuters enjoy the convenience of using a beep™ card and the comfort of Froehlich Tours’ modern bus fleet” said Peter Maher, president and CEO of AF Payments, Inc. Froehlich Tours offers commuters a reliable mode of transportation, allowing shorter travel time as buses leave on schedule and travel from the terminal to the drop-off point without stops.
