Back in May, Department of Transportation Commission or DOTC stated that they they will create a new category of transportation to accommodate app-based service like the GrabCar and Uber and that followed the creation of the TNC. After its formation, GrabCar was the first company to complete all the requirements needed to be certified and accredited. Fast forward to July 3, 2015, the certification was awarded to GrabCar PH by DOTC and LTFRB as seen in the image above.
To celebrate this accreditation by the Philippine government, GrabCar is giving away unlimited Php100 discount on GrabCar and GrabCar+ rides, and to take advantage of it simply use the promo code LEGALLYGRAB. This promo will run from July 7 until July 21, 2015.
