    1. Via Bus (Victory Liner Inc, Dagupan Bus) on Cubao Terminal going to Dagupan, City. You will be stopped on respected terminal at Dagupan, City(Pangasinan) but if you wish to visit Bolinao, Pangasinan, go to (Van) Terminal going to Bolinao at SM Center Dagupan. No stop overs on stated terminals. Hope this helps! ❤️
