U-HOP is PH’s first app-based shuttle service
If you’re on one of the daily commuters and always find yourself lining up to public transportations morning after morning, then you might want to check this out. U-HOP is the Philippines’ first app-based shuttle service and offers convenience and efficiency to its users.
The service works by first signing up and having a card that you could load just like you would a cellphone. Once that’s done, you would choose your preferred method of payment:
Daily round trips (per week/month)
Unlimited rides (per week/month)
This is where the card comes into play as you’d use its credits to pay via the software. The app also lets you choose your preferred pick up spot, time, and destination which it will all consider and run through its system to group passengers and allocate them on the same vehicle.
Coming from the shuttles’ end, they will notify you three times of its distance to your pickup spot. “If you’re late, the shuttle will not wait for you. But U-HOP allows you to rebook the next ride. You are entitled to one free rebooking for a week. If you have bought the monthly service, you are entitled to five rebooking for that month,” this is according to their press release.
Once signed up, members could avail the following services and choose from the servicing areas:
Round Trip – Php693.00 Weekly
Round Trip – Php2,970.00 Monthly
Unli Ride – Php1,400 Weekly
Unli Ride – Php6,000 Monthly
It seems like a promising service to somehow ease and help commuters with their ride to and from their workplaces. To know more about who they are and what they do, give their website a visit.
