This expansion comes after the heels of a successful run in Metro Manila. Congested streets are a real problem for a lot of commuters and motorists in the Philippines. Since GrabTaxi was introduced in Metro Manila, it has helped repair an inefficient system and develop a safer environment for both passengers and drivers.

With 200 affiliate drivers from 20 local taxi fleets in Cebu, spend less time waiting for a cab!


“The development of the mobile is built on our vision to pioneer public transportation mobility for all and promote safety, convenience and speed, which are the core components of the mobile app,” Brian Cu said.
