GETTING AROUND

snapseed
Potpots at A. Bonifacio Street
  • Potpot (Minimum Fare: ₱5.00) is the most popular mode of transportation in the city proper.  Potpot is a bicycle with a side cart to carry 2-3 passengers. It relies entirely on foot work, so travel time can be quite long but it’s definitely a Baybayanon trademark and the experience is fun. The city has hundreds of potpots around!
  • There are multicabs and tricycles that traverse through the national highways in the city’s countryside.
