MiCab in Manila to launch next month

MiCab, a Visayas-based taxi-hailing app, will finally pave its way in Metro Manila next month.
Last month, 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. And now, PNTOA will officially launch the MiCab app next month. The app functions the same way Grab and Uber do, wherein commuters may book rides.

However, commuters may not be able to see the exact cost of their total fare (fixed pricing) as Atty. Bong Suntay, president of PNTOA, is still seeking for the government’s permission to use the said pricing scheme.

Note: ‘MyCab’ instead of ‘Micab’ is written in the source.

    Sinong engot ang sasakay sa taxi na hindi nakikita kung magkano ang babayaran niya? Di ba dapat laging pabor sa pasahero ang features ng app? Tsaka taxi based ang micab di ba? Ayusin nyo muna ugali ng mga taxi drivers ninyo.
