Philippine flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) has forged a partnership agreement with Uber to provide employees a safe, reliable and cost -friendly transportation service.
PAL engaged the Uber service called uberHOP, a ride-sharing option which will enable employees heading in the same direction to share a ride during rush hour for a fixed fare.
The partnership, initiated by the Employee Welfare and Communication Group of PAL’s Human Capital Department, will provide PALers an alternative mode of transport that is both affordable and convenient. UberHOP is a fixed point and fixed price product that will be available in select locations.
“With this partnership, employees of the PAL group will have a convenient transport / car-pooling option at their fingertips. Transport safety and reduction in traffic rush – hour stress will be highly beneficial to employee welfare,” stressed PAL VP for Human Capital Maria Antonia Llamzon.
The uberHOP service is available to registered Uber users and PAL / PALex employees based in PNB Financial Center, Nichols, and PAL infight Center.
Those who are still unregistered may download the app through the Android Play or iOS App Store. From the Uber App, click Register, and provide the necessary information and payment details. UberHOP users may pay in cash or may add one’s credit or debit card in the app for non-cash transactions.
The PAL-uberHOP service is available during morning and evening rush hours on weekdays, excluding holidays. Rates reflect a 40% – 70% reduction off regular prices.
