We all know this — Metro Manila traffic is horrendous, to say the least. Recently, reports show that Manila ranks second in the world’s most congested cities, trailing behind Bengalaru, India. That is why, it didn’t come as a surprise that people opted to switch to other transportation alternatives like Angkas.
Unfortunately for Angkas, their operations in the Philippines didn’t come off easily either. As a motorcycle-taxi, it struggled badly when it comes to government regulations.
Despite that, Angkas was able to gain a fair number of loyal users and bikers. Moreover, we can’t deny that Angkas has played a huge part in our current public transportation.
So if you’re an Angkas user, here’s a good news for you. In accordance with our laws, eligible users may avail 20% discount in Angkas.
