With the traffic situation in Metro Manila worsening each day, Filipinos keep on finding ways to lessen the time they commute to and from their houses. Thankfully, technology has found a way to lessen this burden by allowing you to book your transportation right from your mobile phones.
What is Angkas?
Founded in 2016, Angkas became the go-to motorcycle ride-hailing platform for most Filipinos today. What they lack in comfort, they make up for by being quick and convenient. The passengers cut their commute times in half, and at even more than half the cost too! The service also offers upfront and reliable pricing schemes and, given their lower emissions, lets you enjoy a sustainable alternative to your everyday transportation.
Why should I become an Angkas Rider?
To date, their riders have reached over 27,000 who they call and treat as their partners in their advocacy to improve transport services in the country. But with Metro Manila having a population of 12.88 million, 27,000 rider-partners won’t be enough to offer its services to everyone in the city. This is where you, the future rider, come in.
Earn while you drive
Aside from your genuine interest to help solve our traffic problems, becoming a rider also gives you the chance to earn. Those who have committed to work full time and earn as much as 1,500 Pesos a day. But if you have a day job and would like to become a biker on the side, you can earn as much as 800 Pesos.
Take control of your time
What makes becoming a rider the ideal job is that it gives you total control over your time. You are your own boss! You can set your own schedule with no one to monitor what time you’ll clock in or out. You can have long breaks in between shifts too. You can manage your own time and still earn more than enough. It all depends on how hard you work on helping your fellow Pinoys move from point A to point B.
The company provides free training for its partners. One of the trainings that they provide is motorcycle driving safety training. This is essential to keep both the driver and the passenger safe while traveling to their desired destination.
On top of the motorcycle driving safety training, the company also provides free customer service training. The customer service training was designed to keep the customers satisfied with the kind of service that the driver is providing.
