“Through this partnership, we are promoting the use of public transport as an efficient way of going around Metro Manila.

We are glad to be partnering with Angkas for this initiative toward making public transit systems work to benefit the lives of our countrymen,” said LRMC President and CEO Juan F. Alfonso.


"This latest partnership that we have with the Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) underscores our stern commitment to provide solutions to the mobility problems of daily commuters. We are grateful to the LRT1 management for recognizing the motorcycle taxi industry as a strong ally of commuters amid traffic and road congestion.

We always look forward to working hand in hand with the government and private sectors so we can give commuters the support they need especially in important transit points like the LRT1. This is another big step towards inclusive mobility and economic recovery," said George Royeca, Angkas Co-Founder and Chief Transport Advocate.
