The Department of Transportation (DOTr) on Friday, 03 June 2022, welcomed the participation of ride-hailing app Grab Philippines in the Libreng Sakay Program of the government by providing free airport shuttle rides to passengers at the arrival areas of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminals 2 and 3.
Transportation Secretary Art Tugade expressed his gratitude to Grab as the free shuttle services will augment the current Libreng Sakay Program of the DOTr and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) by ferrying arriving airport passengers through 100 Grab units from NAIA to any point in the National Capital Region.
"'Malaking bagay itong Libreng Sakay mula sa Grab para sa ating mga pasahero upang agaran silang makauwi sa kani-kanilang mga tahanan. Nagpapasalamat tayo sa Grab sa inisyatibong ito na malaking tulong sa ating mga kababayan," Secretary Tugade said.
The free airport shuttle rides for passengers from NAIA will start on 15 June 2022 until 30 June 2022, which will run from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Passengers who wish to avail of the free shuttle service must book at the Grab booths located at the Arrival Areas of NAIA Terminals 2 and 3.
In an earlier statement, Grab Philippines expressed its gratitude to President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and Secretary Tugade for launching the Libreng Sakay Program, which benefitted millions of commuters.
“We thank President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and the DOTr under the leadership of Secretary Art Tugade for launching the Libreng Sakay program, as well as other valuable projects that continue to benefit the Filipino commuters,” the ride-hailing app said.
