The Ordinance No. SP-3184, S-2023, also known as QCity Bus Ordinance, was signed by Mayor Belmonte in June 2023, which “shall cater to the citizens of Quezon City, and individuals who are working, studying, or transacting within the City.” 

QCity Bus currently operates eight (8) bus routes. Most of the routes start and end at the city hall. If you want a free ride from QCity Bus, here’s the complete list of QCity Bus routes and schedules.
