    1. Hello Eresalde,

      As mentioned in our disclaimer, the schedule may change without prior notice. We also mentioned that trips at night are sometimes unreliable. Also, there should have been a trip from Matnog to Dapdap at 1AM and Matnog to San Isidro at 3:00 AM via FastCat. did you go to their counter? Did you ask why there are no trips? Trips may be canceled due to maintenance or storm or gale warning. What time did you get in and depart? Details like these are very important to us as we also want to give our readers the most accurate information. We try our best to update every information that we post. Sometimes, it is really just beyond our control. We are sorry for what happened to you. Safe travels!
