The Roble fast ferry did run.
I hired Alphabet Ormoc rent a car to get from Baybay to MayLaka on Biliran. They wanted 3500 for a city car, which sounded too small, so I opted for 4000 for a Suzuki Ertiga. They were so-so: inaccessible seatbelts and the driver didn't come inside my hotel to get my bag. 4K pesos seems expensive, and maybe I should have asked around the van terminal in Baybay to see if we could hire something cheaper. There were lots of vans there that said a route on their side, but none said Biliran or Naval, near where we were headed. They offered 3.5K to get me to Tacloban after the weekend, from where I'll head to Manila and home, but I'll try one of the better reviewed/recommended on the forums Tacloban-based car services.
Hi buddy. Long time no speak. I still have the contact details of a lass we nicknamed "Superwoman". Her place is on Via Rama. Go down V.Rama towards South Road and shortly before the junction of these two roads you will see a Shell gas station on your right. Immediately opposite is a side street with an emission test place on the corner. This is her place. Name of Mellie. Very efficient and will do everything for you. Registered many big bikes and cars with her. Still use her even though I live in Valencia now. Her number is 09235863888. Cheers - Barry
