Book taxi services through Grab apps - ALTSCOOP


Taxi services in Zamboanga can now be booked through the grab application in android cellphone units, according to Jerson Monteverde, chairperson of the Asia’s Latin City Transport Services Cooperative (ALTSCOOP).

Monteverde said all taxi drivers under the ALTSCOOP have been oriented on grab applications and that the public can already make use of such technology to book taxi services starting today.

Through the grab applications, contracting taxi service in the city would be very convenient as it brings the nearest taxi driver to the passengers without unwanted fare negotiations, Monteverde explained during the Monday press briefing in City Hall.

Since the launching of taxi operations in the city last June 25, the ALTSCOOP has been receiving mostly positive feedbacks, though taxi services were contracted only through a hotline number. Over 200 calls and more than 100 text messages have been registered daily.

“But our grab application will be activated today (Monday, July 20 and this is good news because the public can reserve or make bookings through the grab application,” Monteverde announced.

The riding public can just download the grab application using their android cell phones to book taxi services.

Meanwhile, the ATLSCOOP chairperson assured that taxi services in the city would be a model transport service in the city as the cooperative ensures that all drivers are respectful, practices proper hygiene, honest and friendly. “Rest assured, transport cooperative will provide good service to the constituents.”

The cooperative has rented a storage area in Canelar where all taxi units under ALTSCOOP will stand by for calls or bookings. An office will also be established in the area in compliance with the Omnibus Franchising Guidelines, Monteverde said.

He expressed gratitude to Mayor Beng Climaco and City Administrator Apple Go for the support and to make taxi operation in the city more convenient. (Sheila Covarrubias/City Hall PR)
