The Cebu South Bus Ter­mi­nal (CSBT) has earned over P1 mil­lion dur­ing the Un­das sea­son alone.

The ter­mi­nal man­age­ment col­lected at least P1,041,700 from the bus ter­mi­nal fees worth P150 for ev­ery bus park­ing and P50 for ev­ery bus ar­rival.

The col­lec­tion pe­riod for this amount started on Oc­to­ber 27 un­til Novem­ber 4.

Within that pe­riod, it was on Oc­to­ber 31 that they had col­lected the most when CSBT earned 12.65 per­cent of its rev­enues. It is equiv­a­lent to P131,800 from 712 bus trip de­par­tures and 500 bus ar­rivals.

On a reg­u­lar day, the av­er­age ter­mi­nal traf­fic would be 350 bus trips which would roughly trans­late to P45,000 daily rev­enue.

Due to the high de­mand of buses dur­ing that sea­son, there was an av­er­age of 600 buses a day. The de­mand peaked on Oc­to­ber 31 at 712, and the low­est on Novem­ber 2 at 553.

CSBT Man­ager Jonathan Tu­mu­lak said that there were more pas­sen­ger ar­rivals and de­par­ture this year com­pared to last year.

Their records showed that there were a to­tal of 331,260 pas­sen­gers who de­parted from the bus ter­mi­nal, while 256,260 ar­rived. Tu­mu­lak said that this ex­cludes the chil­dren who can­not oc­cupy yet a full adult seat.

The said num­bers are higher by at least 30,000 com­pared to their ex­pected pas­sen­gers.

He cited that the pri­mary rea­son for the in­crease was the long week­end given that the All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day was a Thurs­day and Fri­day, re­spec­tively.
