Tourists and other visitors to the John Hay Special Economic Zone are now assured of convenient and comfortable ride to move around Baguio City.

The hop-on hop-off exclusive transport facility was made possible through a memorandum of agreement concluded between John Hay Management Corp.,the  implementing arm of the state-run Bases Conversion and Development Authority, and the privately-owned City Trails based in Kamuning, Quezon City.

City Trails has embarked on a shuttle vans project called Highland Trails designed specifically for tourists in Baguio deemed as the country’s summer capital.

JHMC president and chief executive Jamie Eloise Agbayani welcomed the tie-up with City Trails, saying it placed John Hay closer to the reach of tourists and other visitors in Baguio.

“We are happy to be part of this exclusive service facility that makes John Hay as a family-oriented facility extremely accessible to the visitors.”

BCDA president and chief executive Arnel Paciano Casanova said the hop-on, hop-off  transportation system introduced by City Trails would bode well for the tourism industry of Baguio as this will allow increased mobility of tourists around the summer capital.

“The more accessible the area, the more tourists will visit and the more income for Baguio,” Casanova said.

The agreement enabled City Trails to put up a ticketing office and parking space within the Historical Core area in John Hay.

City Trails deploys specially designed vans which tourists may take to go around Baguio. They may hop off in a certain place and enjoy what the city has to offer, then wait for the next City Trail van and hop on to go back to their respective hotels.

The vans operate from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays to Sundays.

City Trails under the agreement will help promote Historical Core and John Hay, through its flyers, informative video materials in its vans’ televisions and verbal announcements to the passengers.
