InDriver, an international ride-hailing app, has been implying their interest to operate in Cebu through sponsored posts on Facebook.
However, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board in Central Visayas (LTFRB-7) told CDN Digital that there was no new TNVS franchise applicant that went to their office yet.
LTFRB-7 Regional Director Retired Colonel Eduardo Montealto Jr. said the processing of TNVS franchise applications was done in their central office in Manila.
“InDriver is a ride-hailing app available in India and 400+ cities in 29 countries,” reads the app profile uploaded in Google Play.
The app claims to “put back the power” in the hands of the passengers by allowing them to “set the fare.”
“We do not set the pricing according to time and mileage like other services. You negotiate directly with drivers and save up to 30 percent on rides,” the profile added.
According to the app’s briefer, a passenger may book a ride by entering the pick-up and drop off points.
Several drivers may accept the booking and among them, the passenger may choose based on who gives the best deal in terms of arrival time, pricing, and even the car model.
