Genesis Transport Service, Inc., also known as Genesis Transport or simply Genesis, is a provincial bus company in the Philippines, operating routes connecting Metro Manila to Central Luzon and Northern Luzon.

[edit]

The name of the bus company Genesis is a biblical word meaning "the beginning".

Half of the letter "G" in its logo shows the Philippine map, representing the center of the company's operations.

History[edit]

Genesis started its operations in 1991, with a shuttle bus between Paskuhan village and the malls in Metro Manila.[1] From there, it grew to owning three buses, which it operated with a crew of six people, and two partners. In 2007, Genesis Transport had a total of 300 buses, servicing routes to key destinations in Central Luzon; including Tarlac, Bataan, Cabanatuan City, Aurora, Baguio City.

In 2009, the company was one of the sponsors of the 5th Philippine Bird Festival in Bataan.[2]

Genesis Transport has opened a new subsidiary, known as Manila Genesis Charters & Tours, Inc., in 2006 as a Philippine corporation and is duly registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This company is offering chartered tourist service and shuttle service in Clark Special Economic Zone in Pampanga.

In August 2010, Genesis Transport started a new service called Joy Bus - a wifi-equipped, 28-seater executive coach with comfort room initially catering non-stop transport to Baler, Aurora. In April 2012, Joy bus extended its service from Cubao - Baguio, Avenida - Baguio and Pasay - Baguio.

In 2010, Genesis Transport Service, Inc. announced its partnership between Dagupan Bus Co., Inc. and Saulog Transit Inc., but in early 2015, the Baguio - Cubao route was acquired by Genesis Transport and rebranded into North Genesis.
