HYPE Transport Systems, Inc. will change the game in online taxi hailing service. 

Getting a taxi cab in Metro Manila is quite a pain in the butt and whenever you rode one naman, the Kalbaryo doesn't end there. And mga taxi cabs dito sa Metro Manila ay pinuputakti ng reklamo at kung ano-anong kaliwat-kanang issues! 

Minsan or should I say napapadalas pa nga na maging linya is: "Kung gusto mong mabwiset or ma Stress, Mag Taxi ka" Or "Kung ayaw mo mastress, wag na wag kang mag ta-Taxi" 

Aci Girl features HYPE Transport Systems, Inc.

I have my fair share of Que-Horror-Riding-A-Taxi-Story. Nan'diyan yung di ka pa nakakasakay may hirit ng dagdag si manong driver. Meron namang akala ata is de-ruta ang taxi nya at ayaw lumayo sa siyudad na nasasaan sya, Meron naman pupugak-pugak na at walang aircon pero 'mayghad' ang metro, ang bilis pumatak ah, anyare? So ano Isa isahin ba natin? Madami-dami pa ang listahang ito and I'm sure ikaw din ay may natatangging kwento! 

But wait...

Positive Taxi Rider Experience Manifesto

HYPE Transport Systems, Inc. came to the rescue. Hype did an upgrade to our overall taxi cab riding experience, of course, most especially to taxi cabs using the HYPE app. They approached the various taxi operators to come together and to commit via a signing of a manifesto to improve overall taxi passenger experience; supported by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB). Oh Lord, sana ito na ang sagot sa kahirapang mag-commute via Taxi sa Pinas!

HYPE CTO Jon Colondriz, HYPE COO Jen Silan, HYPE President Nicanor Escalante, LTFRB Technical Division Chief Joel Bolano, and HYPE Chairman Retired Admiral Danilo Cortez.

“In as much as we in HYPE recognize the importance of further enhancing and developing the key transportation service given by our gallant taxi operators and taxi drivers In easing the woes of our passengers, we also recognize that there is a need to provide proactive solutions to the various issues raised by the riding public,” said Mr. Nicanor Escalante, President of HYPE Transport Systems, Inc.

Now your attention please and watch Papa P!

Escalante further said, “We took the liberty of meeting with the biggest taxi operator associations like PNTOA and ATOMM, and have encouraged them to sign a commitment, a manifesto that focuses on the three biggest issues of concern; and have committed to partner with them in providing solutions; and we are happy that the LTFRB has supported us in this endeavor.”

The issues that were pinpointed were: driver decorum, passenger safety, and vehicle quality. All three were the identified critical factors to achieve an overall positive rider experience.

For driver decorum, HYPE has committed to open its center in Shaw Boulevard as a venue for further driver re-training with the full concurrence of the taxi operators. For passenger safety, aside from the landmark SOS button found in the HYPE app that calls for help in cases of passenger (and driver) distress, the taxi operators committed to be stricter in the screening of its drivers and to closely work with authorities. And lastly, for vehicle quality, the taxi operators have committed to putting emphasis on vehicle maintenance and cleanliness, and these vehicles will be routinely checked by HYPE representatives. All the vehicles and drivers who have passed the standards will be affixed with a HYPE sticker.

RCBC GoSavers

RCBC GoSaversShaping kids to become young investors for a secured future
When I was a kid, masama ang loob ko na every pamasko namen ay entriga agad kay mudrabells. "Diba pera ko yun?" Pano yung mga bagay na gusto ko bilhin? My Mom always told me na "Ibili nang magagamit, ng pagkain, hindi yung kung ano-ano" Kaya binili nya kami ng damit, shoes, and bags. In fairness nung mga panahon na yun I was eyeing for fancy pens, chocolates, and that butterfly hairclip. But later on realized na mas gusto nga lang ni mama na di masayang ang aming pera. Dahil yung mga kapatid kong boys was aiming for pellet guns, sisiw, and toys na madaling masira.

Now that I'm a mom of 3, and I can already see nag uumpisa na silang magtatanong, Nasaan ang pinamasko nila and if pwede na ba nila ibili. So ito na nga, parang replay lang ang eksena na my kids are eyeing for toys, na sooner or later ay pagsasawaan or masisira agad. Pero, nasaan nga ang pinamasko nila? I have this policy nung newborn pa lang si Kuya Charles, na every cent na sa kanya is sa kanya from pakimkim nung binyag to every aguinaldo he received nakalagay sa sariling envelop nya where I kept all his pera. This also goes the same to my girls. Then later on I opened an account for them. And untill now andun pa at namo-monitor nila ang pera nila. At bawal ito bawasan, at dapat nilang dagdagan if may masave sila from their baon. Tinuturuan ko na silang magipon at iwasan or bawasan sana ang paggasto sa bagay na di naman talaga kailangan.

Then, I've got an invite to know more about RCBC's GoSavers. As a mom of 3 na daig pa ang BIR sa pag-question ng funds nila, it is important to guide them as they make their own decisions and show them the value of saving and how to handle their finances wisely.

RCBC GoSavers
Also, aside from teaching kids to save money, we, parents can also guarantee a stable financial foundation for the young ones by getting them insured. With life insurance, parents can have greater peace of mind knowing their kids are covered from any unfortunate events. It also gives children security and freedom to enjoy life without any worries.

RCBC GoSavers Kiddie and Teens Account

RCBC GoSavers Kiddie and Teen Savings Account come with its own debit card and passbook that will assist children in tracking their hard-earned savings. It is also the first start-up savings account in the country that offers a comprehensive insurance package for both parents and the child.

RCBC GoSavers Kiddie and Teens Account

With a minimum initial deposit of P100, parents can already open a GoSavers account for their child. To qualify for the free Sun Life Grepa insurance, the account holder must make an initial deposit or maintain a 6-month average daily balance of at least P10,000. It promises lifelong protection for the family with its life insurance for the parents and personal accident and accident medical reimbursement for the child.

“Our goal has always been financial inclusion for all Filipinos and part of that is educating children on how to save and manage their own finances,” said Emmanuel Valdes, Senior Vice President and Head of Deposit Products and Promotions Division. “We want to create a savings-conscious generation where we can enable and show them how to intelligently and consistently grow their money for their own future.”

RCBC GoSavers
