From the Northbound Terminal in Bata, take the Northbound-Libertad jeepney, then alight at what the locals call bangga (corner) patio. You will know you are near bangga patio when you see a cemetery in the middle of the street. This is about a block before West Negros University – STI Campus. Next, cross the street and ride a jeepney plying the Shopping-San Agustin route. Travel time from the Northbound Terminal should take you about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on traffic.
Flat rate for regular passengers is at PhP6.50 while senior citizens and students with a valid ID are charged PhP5 per ride.

The trip to Cauayan takes about three to four hours while the trip to Sipalay and Hinoba-an takes five to six hours.
