Grab Philippines is “ready to work on a partnership with the government” on the proposed Transportation Network Vehicle Services (TNVS) for state workers, Country Head Brian Cu yesterday announced.
As a pilot project, the ride-hailing service provider is offering its business transport solution, Grab for Work, to the Department of Budget (DBM) employees.
Grab Philippines “welcomes and supports” Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno’s statement encouraging government officials and workers to use the ride-hailing services of transportation network companies (TNC’s) instead of buying their own cars.
Grab has always been a partner of the government for development and will continue to do so, especially with Secretary Diokno’s pronouncement, according to Cu.
“Helping ensure the safety and security of commuters is a big responsibility for any company,” he explained. “Grab has always been ready to cooperate with the government, not only to resolve regulatory issues but also to find solutions to make Filipinos’ daily commute a better, safer experience.”
