A new ride-hailing service might be competing with Grab very soon, as inDrive, the global mobility service headquartered in California, has received an official accreditation from the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) as a Transport Network Company (TNC).
This move will allow the platform to offer its services in the country, rivaling top ride-hailing apps in the country like Grab, Joyride, and Angkas, among others.
Boasting an elevated transportation experience, inDrive promises to give its customers more control over their ride requests. This includes a feature where users can choose which driver to book based on their ratings, vehicle model, and estimated time of arrival.
Meanwhile, drivers also have the option to choose the most convenient or suitable request, as they will be given the fare, pick-up point, and destination details for each ride. They can also ignore some requests without paying a fee or incurring penalties.
InDrive will also introduce its Safety Pact feature, which helps ensure the safety of each ride carried out through the platform.
For its initial launch phase, the service will be rolled out in Bacolod, Iloilo City, Baguio, Butuan, and Cagayan de Oro. To headstart its operation, inDrive is also having its driver registration campaign in these cities, which will run until Dec. 31.
Roman Ermoshin, APAC director at inDrive, said in a press statement that the company targets to fulfill the transportation needs of Filipinos with more options through the service.
