A new motorcycle ride-hailing app is in the wings, awaiting the approval of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) before it operates as another transportation network company (TNC) here. 

During the brand’s soft launch at the Okada Manila last Dec. 10, Pilipinas EsetGo CEO John Alexis Revilla said that once they get the DOTr’s go signal, they can accept applicants and begin operations in Metro Manila. “As of the moment, we’re just waiting for the instructions on how we can move forward,” he declared.

Aside from ride-hailing and package delivery, Revilla said that EsetGo will also offer other types of services that are currently not available with other TNCs.

Revilla explained that customers may employ the services of the EsetGo drivers to pay for their electric bills through its “Pabayad” option or transact important documents via the “Paasikaso” service. Aside from that, EsetGo also offer a chauffeur-like service to senior citizens with the “Paalalay” feature and a modern-day version of tricycle with “Pasada.”

During his presentation, Revilla also said that the EsetGo will also include other features such as responding to emergency situations like road accidents and robberies.

In terms of its ride-hailing fee, EsetGo’s first two kilometers is priced at P50 with an additional P10 for every succeeding kilometer up to seven kilometers.

Revilla told WHEELS.PH that once EsetGo has been cleared to operate, the Filipino-owned motorcycle ride-hailing company would initially deploy riders in Metro Manila with plans to expand reach to other provinces.

He added that since they are prioritizing the safety of their passengers, EsetGo would not accept riders who are currently connected to other TNCs in order to avoid double shifts that could lead to rider fatigue.

“If you want to apply at EsetGo, we will not (accept) any rider (presently) connected to any transportation network company.”

Revilla said that their drivers will be only be allowed to work for 10 hours to ensure safety on the road.
