Biliran Province badly needs fast reliable travel to the nearest International Airport in Cebu City. At the moment 3 Fast Ferry services battle for competition on the Ormoc route with the Biliran passengers forced to continue their journey by van, but it would make more business sense for one company to switch away from Ormoc and go direct to Naval.
At the moment only a very old slow ferry service runs on the Cebu Naval route.
Could the Roble Ship actually be discouraging a fast Super Cat style ferry running on the Cebu to Naval route? A new fast ferry service might not want to go into competition with Roble for passengers on that route, so if Roble ever decided reduce its Naval service it might actually benefit Biliran Province by encouraging another company such as 2Go Travel, Weesam Express or OceanJet to start a route to Naval.
