Event: #thepowerofchoice with Hype Pilipinas, a new true Filipino ride-hailing app lets you book ride via SMS for free
Believe in the power of the Filipino! We met the executives of the new ride-hailing app Hype Pilipinas President and CEO Mr. Nick Edcalante, COO Ms.Jennifer Silan and CTO John Codorniz Jr. set to offer rides starting May 27 in Metro Manila. A true Filipino company who is also into other types of business, Mr. Nick Escalante shared the good news of Hype Pilipinas getting official accreditation from LTFRB next month. Hype compared to Grab he said will definitely be a lot cheaper because it will only charge per distance. Similar to other TNVS, riders may book using cash or cards plus other payment options plus a new feature - SMS booking FOR FREE. When the app detects that the rider has no signal, riders can book via SMS and it will also honor SC/PWD/Student discount priveleges automatically.
Beta testing will start May 19 and the official launch will happen at SMX Convention Center on May27 with a popular celebrity endorser. We all hope HYPE will finally solve our transport problems and the greedy solons trying to leech the system. After all, who'll better serve the Filipino? Let's all avail of the #PowerOfChoice now granted to us by Hype. Interested drivers and operators may register via www.hypetransport.com. For more updates visit https://www.facebook.com/HypePilipinas/
