Bacolod Iloilo RoRo Rates Passenger Car Vehicles How To

Updated Nov 18, 2019

Do you want to bring your car or motorcycle to Negros or Iloilo? Or transport your goods through a truck? Or cheaper ways to cross the Guimaras Strait? This is the ultimate guide for RoRo Bacolod to Iloilo. Go to Quick Navigations below to see all the menus.

Bacolod and Iloilo are twin cities. We think we are separated by the sea, but it actually in connects us. In fact, we share the same Ilonggo dialect. What’s interesting because Iloilo’s southern half is karay-a. The language crossed the sea to Negros Island. Also, the other half of Negros Island at the East speaks Bisaya/Visayan dialact. Ineed, the sea does not separate, but rather connects us. As a blogger, I can help our lands stay connected. Contact me for financial advise, real estate inquiry or guest blogging collab.

 Here are the information I constantly update from BREDCO (Bacolod Port), Dumangas (Iloilo Port), Iloilo City and Banago (Bacolod) ports.

RoRos are ships designed to carry vehicles such as motorcycles, trucks and four wheeled cars. They are also cheaper options for passengers, usually fare is 60 yo 80% lower. Now, RoRos have the same travel time compared to fastcrafts (my last ride RoRo is 2 hours Bacolod – Iloilo. Fastcrafts are also 2 hours). However, roros dock in Dumangas instead of Iloilo City. 

What are the Ways to Cross Bacolod and Iloilo?

 

  • All RoRos (except Fast Cat) are from BREDCO to Dumangas and Vice Versa
  • The RoRo called FastCat is from Bacolod Banago Pier to Iloilo City Ferry Terminal
  • All fastcrafts (BREDCO to Iloilo City and Vice Versa)

Use the routes above based on your cargo, budget and destination.

When to Use RoRo?

  1. If you wanna bring a car, so you can go directly to your destination in another island at your own pace, at your own time.
  2. Missed the last trip of the fast craft in Iloilo City or Bacolod? Worry not, choose RoRo! (But consider your arrival points)
  3. If you wanna transport bulk or truck-load of goods.
  4. Cheaper way of crossing the Guimaras Strait. (But consider your arrival point)
