Toyota to roll out free rides starting December 2023
Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has partnered with the City Government of Santa Rosa and the City Government of Pasay for the Toyota Community Shuttle (TCS) – a free on-demand, shared transportation service, which will be delivered via a digital interface.
Under separate agreements, TMP is providing each city government with a fleet of five brand-new and airconditioned Toyota Lite Ace units that will run on flexible routes within city boundaries. These units under TCS are set to provide free rides for a year starting December 1, 2023, in Santa Rosa City and December 2, 2023, in Pasay City.
The booking service for TCS will be delivered through the ‘myToyota Shuttle PH’ application — one of the flagship mobility solutions of TMP’s mobility service arm, Toyota Mobility Solutions Philippines, Inc. (TMSPH).
The ‘myTOYOTA Shuttle PH’ allows efficient on-demand shuttle management that optimizes route planning and seat booking. Through a downloadable mobile application, commuters can easily book their rides using a personal device, monitor the real-time location, and check the arrival time of the TCS unit.
“TMP is offering TCS as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility and in commemoration of TMP’s 35th anniversary. Through TCS, TMP aims to contribute to improving the quality of life in these communities by providing free, easier, smarter, and safer mobility,” said TMP president Atsuhiro Okamoto.
