JoyRide rolls out next-generation Super Taxi service


JoyRide Philippines recently launched the JoyRide Super Taxi, taking inspiration from Japan’s JPN Taxi and featuring onboard amenities designed to enhance passenger comfort, convenience, and safety, all at the regular metered taxi fare rate.

Pioneering the next-generation taxi services, JoyRide enables commuters to hail (“Parahin”) a Super Taxi directly on the street or conveniently book a ride through the JoyRide Superapp.

“JoyRide Super Taxi provides another efficient and dependable mode of public transport to commuters, offering a ‘De-Metrong Kasundo’ taxi service and elevating the public’s commuting experience standards,” Noli Eala, JoyRide Senior Vice President for Corporate Affairs, said.

JoyRide will deploy 25 units initially in Metro Manila, with plans to rapidly increase its fleet next year.

The JoyRide Super Taxi sports a sleek black exterior, a spacious 5-seater cab, high roofing, a modern digital toplight, and additional onboard amenities, including an in-cabin infotainment system, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable ride for passengers.

“The public can enjoy all these features of JoyRide Super Taxi without any fare increase, as the service will still be classified as a regular metered taxi or what we call ‘De-Metrong Kasundo,’” Eala added.

Drivers of JoyRide Super Taxi undergo a stringent selection process similar to the one used for JoyRide’s existing driver-partners. These highly trained and courteous professionals prioritize the safe transportation of passengers to their destination while using regular metered taxi fare rates.

JoyRide, envisioning to be the premier mobility company in the country, is helping the current administration provide commuters with safe, affordable, and reliable modes of public transport.

Eala expressed confidence and optimism regarding the Super Taxi. “We have high hopes for the Super Taxi service and look forward to the positive response from commuters as they experience this new and exciting offering from JoyRide.”

“It brings us great joy to announce that starting today, passengers can take advantage of JoyRide Super Taxi, just in time for the upcoming holiday season as everyone prepares to navigate the holiday rush,” Eala added.

JoyRide is the first and only homegrown superapp in the Philippines, providing a diverse range of ride-hailing and delivery services. Renowned for its Motorcycle Taxi service, JoyRide has played a pivotal role in disrupting the prevailing ride-hailing monopoly in the country. It has since expanded beyond 2-wheel services to include 4-wheel options such as JoyRide Car and JoyRide Taxi Cab.

With a mission to revolutionize the transportation landscape in the Philippines, JoyRide is committed to empowering commuters by providing accessible and innovative technology-driven mobility solutions.

Since it started in December 2019, JoyRide has successfully garnered over 5 million app downloads and boasts an extensive network of over 30,000 2W and 4W driver-partners across Metro Manila, Rizal, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Cebu, and Baguio City. It is soon set to expand its services in Pampanga and Ilocos Norte.
