PNR Train Schedule Manila to Naga Bicol Fare Routes Ticket Reservation
History says it when you try to come over at the Tutuban PNR train terminal that the Bicol Express train service was first put up to running condition back in 1938.
Today, the route going to Naga City in Bicol was revived thru the Philippine National Railways (PNR) train routes going to the province passing through Laguna and Quezon in 2011.
Calling the PNR customer service representative hotline telephone number, I tried to ask as much questions as I could.
This is because I want to be able to squeeze as much relevant information about the PNR train from the routes to pass, to the 2011 ticket prices from Manila to Naga.
I found out more about travel time and schedule for 2011, stop over terminals from Tutuban, types of cabin and accommodation available, ticket reservation hotline, time of departure and arrival, security and food availability. Here’s what I have for you.
Routes and Terminals to Pass: (Manila to Naga)
From Manila Tutuban Station to Naga Central Station, there are only five route stopvers ranging from 1-2 minutes only – Lucena, Hondagua, Tagkawayan, Ragay, and Sipocot. After these 5 stop overs, you finally reach Naga, according to their customer service.
Note that they currently offer a 20% discount according to hotline reservations officer July 23, 2011. This is for a Manila to Naga train ticket prices / fare / rate / prices via the Bicol Express.

First off, let me remind you that according to the customer service representative I talked to, stop overs between route will only be a 1-2 minute stop.
