Metro Manila taxis partner with Micab app

Visayas-based taxi-hailing app MiCab has now reached Metro Manila as it had inked partnerships with metro-based taxis to expand its local driver base.

As it now expands in Manila, Micab has partnered with PNTOA (Philippine National Taxi Operators Association) and ATOMM (Association of Taxi Operations in Metro Manila) to use the app for its growing base of riders. These two taxi associations, together, account for around 20,000 fleets of taxi vehicles.


 




“Taxi operators are one with the passengers in looking for a seamless, convenient, safe, and worry free transport service which everyone can use. This is the major reason why we are partnering with MICAB; this will allow us to provide maximum convenience to our commuting public,” said Atty. Bong Suntay, President of the PNTOA.

Originally founded in 2012 and started operating in Cebu in 2013, MiCab is a taxi-hailing cab startup originally serving those who want to hail a taxi from Cebu and Iloilo provinces, promising a “Safer and Worry-free ride” with a touch of a button and is available for Android and iOS devices. The setup is similar to GrabTaxi — a taxi booking fee will be charged on top of your current meter, and an in-app call and chat system for more security, passenger reward system, and payment by either cash or credit cards. There’s also a one-tap emergency button for those who feel threatened with their ride.

Could this be the change we are looking for? Only time could tell.

    Eh kaya naman pala nahold ang grab at uber accreditation, may local player na posibleng mamonopolize ang business. Dapat transparent din kung sino ang may-ari at mga investors sa micab na ito. 100% sure may politicians na makikinabang kaya todo gipit sila sa uber at grab ngayon.

    Hangga’t mga bastos, hindi dumaan sa proper driver training at nangongontrata ang mga taxi drivers, grab at uber pa rin ang sasakyan ko.

    Walang kahit isang taxi nung nag attempt ako gumamit sa araneta center (cubao) area. Let’s see kung dadami sila.

    Sobrang pangit pa rin ng service ng Taxi sa Metro Manila. Namimili. Nangongontrata. You would subject yourself in danger if you actually have to wait on the street to get one at night. I’m sure this is very much in tune with what they are doing with uber and grab at the moment

      sumasangayon ako sa sinabi ni red at archie. yung mga regular taxi malakas magkontrata, mareklamo, luma pa ang taxi, lubog na ang silya, parang nasa oven ka kahit may aircon at talo sila sa UBER at GRAB kasi …. pag nagbook ka ng TNVS ikaw ang pupuntahan ka or susundoin … hindi kailangan magbilad sa araw para maka kuha ng taxi . . .
      kaya pag hindi magbago ang serbisyo ng regular taxi …. huwag tanggalin ang UBER at GRAB….. AMEN.

    “Atty. Bong Suntay, President of the PNTOA” because his taxi business was not earning like it used to dahil sa Grab/Uber. Hangga’t walang regulation at strict policies, these politicians will just corrupt their way to earn millions.
