AFTER a three-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Philippine leading motorcycle-hailing app Angkas is now running its pilot operations again in Cagayan de Oro City.
During a press conference relaunching Angkas Tuesday at The Cove, head of transport operations David Brian Medrana announced the live operations of Angkas’ app in the city participated by 416 units.
Two councilors welcomed the move. Councilor Romeo Calizo, chairman of the committee on public utilities, and his vice chair Councilor Roger Abaday vowed to institutionalize City Council measures to protect Angkas drivers and passengers in the city.
Based in Makati City, Angkas was founded in 2016 by Singaporean Angeline Tham with the intention of beating the traffic-congested streets of the Philippines and saving precious time through ride hailing.
Angkas’ drivers are provided free training by the company and they go through background checks and skills assessment before being deployed, according to Medrano. Meanwhile, passengers are provided good quality helmets and disposable shower caps for their safety and comfort.
The company’s current CEO is George Royeca. Royeca is a staunch advocate of inclusive mobility and sustainable transport. Through his work, Royeca has created a movement to raise awareness on the plights of millions of Filipino motorcyclists. Book your ride with Angkas today!
