ALPS THE BUS’ corporate mission is to provide services of high quality and safe transportation to public, to approach actively to the resolution of any customer needs, to face any challenges within bus and coach transport nationwide, as well as to increase efficiency and effectiveness of all activities performed in favour of fulfilment of common goals set by our shareholders, management and employees.
Back in 1991, ALPS Express, (a Single Proprietorship) with its starting unit (a Japan Surplus acquired from Prince Motors) had its share of roads, routing Lawton to Batangas via Alabang and Vise-versa. With the courage and perseverance of the whole family to make the business grow and confident that transportation service is their way of life, making it on the road, the family acquired additional three (3) units from Tritran Company in 1992 and another (4) units from the same Bus Company in 1994.
The year 1994 was a witness of a remarkable growth of the company, its new acquisition, the ALPS twin (the two brand new units) from the Columbian Motors Corporation which granted ALPS a credit line, paved the way for greater tracking and growing family of ALPS. Its life has continued running on the roads going through different directions and still servicing the commuting Batangueños.
Apparently the growth has been a tremendous outbreak for ALPS, as there seemed to be no stopping. More buses have been acquired. The company has since then increased its service as well as it routes servicing Batangas City Pier to Cubao; Batangas City to Nasugbu and vise versa. The acquisition of more buses has relatively increased the company’s playing field and created more jobs to its growing staff. ALPS has to play with the giants and the family decided to have one strategic place a lot in Diversion Road, Bolbok, Batangas which has been complimented by establishing business office and motor pool in Balagtas, Batangas City. Both places are accessible and business viable making it more easy for ALPS’ passengers and staff, and giving better service to the commuting public.
Just like the growing family of Perez’s, ALPS Express, the company did so, when it increased the number of units and services. In 1998 ALPS made a major decisive move to convert the single proprietorship into a Corporate Company.
Despite the transitions, the Perez Family remained the stockholders of the Company. Solidifying them more than ever, creating their father’s dream into reality. From a single bus unit, ALPS has grown in number and in strength.
Its services add up, as the company opened up new routes: Cubao to Batangas City; Cubao to San Juan Batangas and Nasugbu to Batangas City. Not stopping in its tracks ALPS ventured out of Batangas, acquiring a new franchise further south, the Bicol route: Cubao to Sorsogon / Daet / Naga. Servicing not only Batangueños but Bicolanos as well.
ALPS’ vision is SERVICE and the company will continue to serve as its burning commitment like the family that is committed to each member. It is ALPS’ family, the solid foundation of ALPS THE BUS INC.
