RoRo from Dumangas Port to Bacolod

Dumangas Port

When traveling to Bacolod from Iloilo you got two options to take, either the quickest yet expensive Sea Jets or a 3-fold lower cost RoRo yet takes you a bit longer traveling time. If you chose to take RoRo to Bacolod then here’s a guide for you. This guide is based on my own experience. From Iloilo, take the van at Lapaz Baldoza Terminal going to Dumangas for Php35.00. Just tell the driver to drop you off at the crossing going to Dumangas Port at Brgy. Nalu-uyan. At the crossing take a tricycle ride going to the port for Php15.00 and you are ready to jump off to RoRo ferries that heads to Bacolod. The fare varies from vessel to vessel, ranges from Php48 – Php60. All in all your traveling cost to Bacolod via RoRo at the Dumangas Port is only around Php100.00 with a traveling time of 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours. Fair enough because you saved a lot in your traveling cost. Refer to the list below for the exact time of schedules and fare matrix.

I am just wondering though why there is no direct trip of vans going to the Nalu-uyan Port? It’s just a hassle to trasfer from a van to a tricycle which most of the times goes overloaded and running after each other along those bumpy junctions from the port terminal to the crossing. It is so risky for the travellers. I think some authorities should make a move to facilitate the direct trip from Baldoza Terminal to Nalu-uyan Port in Dumangas. Those tricycles could take in other routes. It would  further boost the activities of the pier because even now more and more passengers are taking advantage of this route everyday.
