Getting Around La Union

To get around La Union, one can take Jeepneys and mini-buses with fixed routes at a minimal fare. Tricycles (motorcycles with sidecars) are commonly used in reaching remote areas and suburbs.

  • Jeepney. This is a customized army jeep which was left by the Americans during the Second World War. Resized, remodeled, and shined, this multipurpose vehicle is can accommodate from 20 to 30 passengers which takes them to other municipalities and cities in La Union. It is also a famous symbol for the Philippines, known for its artistic designs, colors and horn sounds.

  • Tricycle. These local taxis are widely available around the province. For just a minimal cost, you can reach nearby destinations or even hire them further as you please. Basically, the minimum fare per passenger is PhP 8.00.

  • Mini-bus. If you want to reach a nearby town a little bit faster than the jeepney, then take the minibus. Most are not air-conditioned (although there are already some which are) since various cargoes especially market goods and almost all people from all walks of life ride on them.

  • Rent-a-van. If you wish to drive on your own in exploring La Union, there is good list of accredited van or car owners which offer car rental services. The option of hiring a driver (probably the vehicle owner at that) is also available. Please inquire at the La Union Tourism Information Center for more details.
