GrabTaxi, the most-popular and sought after mobile taxi booking service app in the Philippines, successfully launched in Baguio City last August 5. Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan welcomed GrabTaxi as the company officials visited different local government offices and paid courtesy call to the head of the city. Mayor Domogan was already aware of the technology of the taxi booking app and “got excited because he knows it will help a lot of (taxi) drivers in Baguio,” shared by newly-appointed GrabTaxi Philippines, Country Marketing Head, Khriztina Lim.
Lim, is one of the youngest female executives in the country who rose from the ranks since joining GrabTaxi Philippines two years ago. Lim joined GrabTaxi as Marketing Executive and was promoted as Passenger Experience Head, six months after. Lim was appointed as Country Marketing Head, two months ago.
The launch in Philippines’ Summer Capital, offers safe, reliable and convenient taxi rides to more than 300,000 residents and almost one million tourists visiting every year.
“We are committed to provide convenience to every taxi driver and commuter wherever they may be. We bring GrabTaxi to Baguio to be of service to both drivers and passengers. We want to help increase earnings of the drivers while letting the passengers have a more convenient commute,” said GrabTaxi Head Poch Ceballos.
“The drivers in Baguio pinpoint the difficulty in getting passengers during rainy days as they wait for the rain to stop before going out. With the introduction of GrabTaxi, passengers started booking because they know that there is a taxi that can fetch them from their home or offices,” said Lim during an exclusive interview with Manila bloggers who came to Baguio to cover the event.
“Eventually, taxi drivers got more bookings, they’ve got more passengers, and their income increased tremendously since we started (beta testing) over a month ago,” she added.
Booking fee for GrabTaxi Baguio is set at Php 25. As a gift to the passengers, GrabTaxi waived the booking fee for FREE beginning August 5 to 31 plus Php 50 off on total metered fare for them to enjoy and experience the safe, fast, and sure GrabTaxi rides.
GrabTaxi Baguio office is located at 133 Magsaysay Avenue, Brgy. Happy Homes, Baguio City.
