ALPS The Bus Wikipedia
The name "ALPS The Bus" is derived from the founder of the company, Mr. Arcadio L. Perez and his sons, thus A.L.Perez & Sons.
It started in 1991 as ALPS Express, a Single Proprietorship company by Arcadio L. Perez started with only one Japanese surplus bus unit, routing from Batangas to Manila and vice-versa. From that, they expanded with additional 3 units in 1992, then another 4 units in 1994.
Apparently, the growth has been a tremendous outbreak for ALPS The Bus when they are capable of buying brand new units (mostly from Columbian Motors Corporation, a local manufacturer of buses in the Philippines). More buses have been acquired, increasing the number to 51 units. The company has since then increased its service as well as its routes servicing Batangas City - Alabang - Lawton - Cubao and vice-versa.
Knowing the expansion, the company moved their location in a lot along Diversion Road, Bolbok, Batangas City. It has been leased for its official terminal.
In 2001, ALPS expanded their operations to Mindoro with the help of Super Cat Lines. ALPS also rented a terminal in Cubao, Araneta Center, as well as the terminal in another town, Lemery, Batangas.
Today, their routes had reached from Manila, Batangas, Bicol Region and even to as far as Iloilo.
