Did you know that you can avail free e-jeep rides in the summer capital?
Libreng Sakay in Baguio is part of the Department of Transportation's Service Contracting Program Phase 3, which was launched on April 11.
Aside from providing free rides for commuters, it also aims to financially support transport workers by providing weekly performance-based incentives based on the number of trips they make per week.
