In general, the Green Frog Buses is the newest option when it comes to commuting around Metro Manila and Makati City.
Initially, Green Frog Buses operated the LRT-Taft line to C5 Kalayaan Makati with only two buses. The bus's passenger pick-up area is specially marked on the Buendia stretch.
To avoid waiting for an unnecessarily long time, passengers can call on the bus driver's phone number to get the bus’s current location. Although the number of vehicles is small, customers using Green Frog Buses will get several benefits that can not be found in any other public vehicles:
The driver and conductor with green and orange uniforms are always neat and clean while serving on the Green Frog Bus.
The conductor always keeps a doormat to clean wet areas in the car when the weather is raining. The temperature of the air-conditioner is stable and suitably adjusted for customers of all ages in traffic.
Like other buses, the seats on every Green Frog Bus route is limited, but its cabin space is large enough for standing passengers.
Passengers can enter through the front door and get off through the middle one safely in every case.
The professionalism and courtesy of the driver and the conductor on every trip are worth to be appreciated. For passengers with special conditions such as the old, people with disabilities, or pregnant women, the conductor will always treat them with respect and be super supportive.
Moreover, the driver is also careful but very efficient as he traveled Manila’s wet roads due to the constant rain.
