Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation (TMP) announced that it will improve the commuting experience of Filipinos through a free booking service application called SWATRide. As the community quarantine gradually allowed the resumption of work and public transportation in Metro Manila, TMP is providing free point-to-point (P2P) bus rides from UP Town Center—Glorietta 3 starting this July 20 until October 20 this year.

The free service is part of Toyota’s continuous effort in supporting the government, consulting with Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB). SWATRide eases the worries of the commuting public through their reliable, convenient, and safe transportation. The service operator of the route, Delta Neo Solutions, seamlessly integrated the application for better passengers’ experience.

Available for download from the App Store, Google Play, and Huawei App Gallery, SWATRide is a convenient booking app as passengers can view seat availability and choose their preferred seats in advance. This helps in preventing the spread of the coronavirus, particularly in small, enclosed spaces. All partners involved with this project guarantee that they will conduct consistent sanitation of their P2P buses, and units are 100% compliant with the government’s safety and health protocols. The group has three units running at 50% of regular capacity, ready to serve over 300 passengers daily.

TMP and Toyota Mobility Foundation also started providing ten shuttles equipped with SWATRide booking, through DOTr’s ‘Free Ride for Health Workers Program’ last May, giving daily free rides to healthcare workers of Philippine General Hospital.
