Binalonan Mayor Ramon Guico III said Grab Philippines is expanding its operations in the municipality by launching “Grab Trike” in the municipality.
The Pangasinan politiko said the project is a partnership between the Binalonan municipal government and Grab Philippines.
Grab operates an online ride-hailing app for four-wheeled vehicles.
“Here, ‘Grab Trike Binalonan’ is for tricycles, and anybody or any member of a TODA can register, so long as they possess a tricycle franchise issued by the municipal government,” Guico explained.
He said 100 tricycles out of 1,500 have already registered with Grab.
“This is advantageous to both tricycle drivers and passengers. Anywhere you are, you can book a ride. For the driver, he can have a passenger anytime,” Guico said.
“Grab Trike Binalonan operates 24/7, meaning a passenger is assured of a tricycle ride anytime of the day. Just like a ‘Grab Taxi’, the fare is fixed and it is up to the passenger if he wants to give a tip,” he added.
