Lillian Express, Inc., was a bus company based in Dipolog City in the Philippines. It served bus routes to the Zamboanga Peninsula.

Its buses and route network were merged with Rural Transit and Bachelor Express after it was bought out completely by the Yanson Group of Companies in 2005.[1][2]


Lillian Express' name was taken from the family matriarch Lillian Opulentisima-Young. It started its business operation in Dipolog City in the early 1960s and eventually branched to Ozamiz, Pagadian and Zamboanga City.

In 1995, it expanded bus transport service to the cities of Davao, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Iligan, Pagadian, Zamboanga, Dipolog, Ozamiz, and Bukidnon province.[3] Its sister company Mary May Express, runs Dipolog to Zamboanga City routes.

Its whole route network was bought out completely in 2005 by Vallacar Transit Incorporated, a Bacolod City based bus conglomerate, commencing from its Davao, Agusan, and Bukidnon route networks, then followed by Cagayan de Oro and Dipolog routes. Its last transport service to the public was made on April 30, 2005 on board an 8:00PM bus from Zamboanga City bound to Dipolog City which arrived at 1:30AM the following day.

Its transport operations were merged with Rural Transit as its Dipolog and Pagadian bases.
