TNVS provider Angkas has teamed up with the PNP to provide free transportation to medical frontliners in Metro Manila.
FREE TRANSPORTATION FOR FRONTLINERSAngkas unveiled its program during a ceremony attended by Interior and Local Government Secretary Eduardo Año and top police officials at Camp Crame in Quezon City.
Under the program, around 1,000 Angkas drivers will give free transportation to medical frontliners assigned at hospitals treating coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) which were identified by the Department of Health.
ANGKAS TO HELP THE FRONTLINERSAngkas chief transport advocate George Royeca said medical frontliners do not need to pay as they will source the salaries of their riders from other partners, saying it is their own way of giving back to health workers who are facing the COVID-19 outbreak.
Here are the following guidelines for a health care worker to avail of Angkas' free ride:
- Angkas is offering free rides to healthcare workers in Metro Manila. If you are a frontliner, please sign up here: http://tiny.cc/angkasforhcw

On Tuesday, Angkas has also provided 100 motorcycle barriers to the City of Manila.
