Uber expands coverage to the east — Cainta and Antipolo included
Starting today, May 2, 2016, Uber operations will now bring you to the east side of Metro Manila including Cainta and select areas of Taytay, Antipolo, and San Mateo.
Updated: Surcharge only applies from Manila to the areas mentioned.
When you’re headed towards the east, there will be an automatic East Surcharge worth Php60 which is meant “to ensure the economic sustainability of expanding Uber Manila’s coverage area.”
It’s important to note that the surcharge is only added when you’re coming from Manila to the aforementioned locations and not from there — so if you live in Cainta, for example, you can get a ride from Uber going to Manila with no additional charge.
Curious if your place is within the expanded coverage area? You can enter your destination on the Uber app before hitting the Request button. The app should let you know if the location is outside of Uber’s coverage.
