GrabTaxi drivers can now experience the convenience of GCash, the flagship mobile money service of Globe Telecom, with their very own GCash GrabTaxi card.
G-Xchange, Inc., the operator of GCash, recently formed a partnership with GrabTaxi Philippines. The partnership offers to its over 5,000 drivers an easy, safe and hassle-free reimbursement system using GCash Payroll, a funds disbursement service linked to a Globe/TM SIM where one can receive and withdraw cash transfers.
At the recent GrabTaxi Driver’s Day held at the Globe Circuit Event Grounds, participating drivers got the chance to sign up and claim their GCash GrabTaxi card that came with a free Globe Prepaid SIM.
With the new system of payment, GrabTaxi can now easily remit drivers’ reimbursements through the GCash GrabTaxi card. GrabTaxi drivers from Metro Manila, Cebu, and Davao no longer have to visit GrabTaxi offices or garages to claim their reimbursements, saving them more time and making them more productive. With their new card, they will be able to withdraw from any of the 13,000 Megalink ATMs and more than 7,000 GCash outlets nationwide.
“We are privileged to be part of the driving force of GrabTaxi’s continued success by harnessing technology in boosting their operations and giving their drivers a wonderful experience when it comes to reimbursements through the GCash GrabTaxi card,” said GXI President and CEO Xavier Marzan.
Acting General Manager for GrabTaxi Natasha Bautista also shared, “We take care of our dedicated GrabTaxi partner drivers in the same way that we take care of our valued passengers. With this partnership with Globe and GCash, we are assured that we can better provide more innovative solutions that will benefit our GrabTaxi drivers.”
Apart from the GCash GrabTaxi card registration and card distribution, cab drivers also enjoyed free haircut, free massage, medical and dental check-up, as well entertainment from radio personality Papa Jack and all-female singing group Mocha Girls at the GrabTaxi Driver’s Day.
