The exit of Uber in the country (and the whole Southeast Asia) has left us with only one ride-hailing app: Grab, which is criticized by most people because of “unreasonable fare hikes”, among other things.  But don’t fret! There are a lot of new commuting options coming your way, and each has different perks and according to every passenger’s needs. . Watch out for these future apps:

8. Hirna

Via CDODev

Originally from Davao City, HirNa Mobility Solutions Inc. or simply HirNa is an app exclusively for hailing regular metered taxis. According to a report by ABS-CBN, this newest service won’t charge booking fees, and instead adopt the rates of regular-metered taxis with a base fare of Php 40. They just got accredited by LTFRB last April 19, 2018.

 

7. GoLag

They are still working on their accreditation papers according to LTFRB, but this new app is one to watch out for.

 

6. Owto

Unlike Grab and Uber, Owto is fully-owned and made by Pinoys. They intended to launch last year, but LTFRB halted their service because they did not coordinate with the regulating body beforehand. Check out their website for more details.

 

5. Hero

No details have been released yet, but LTFRB has already mentioned them as potential new competitor of Grab—if they complied with the requirements.
