Most taxis companies in the Philippines use sedans for their fleets, though in places like Baguio, it’s not uncommon to see an MPV like the Toyota Innova being utilized as a taxi. Well, did you know that there’s a taxi company in Cebu utilizing a Toyota Hiace in their fleet? We’re just as surprised as you are.
Toyota continues to show its commitment to support the national government’s Public Utility Vehicle (PUV) Modernization Program and provide better transportation experience through its partnership with Ogre Transport Incorporated, a Cebu-based taxi service company, and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB).
In a simple and intimate event last March 7, 2021, in Consolacion, Cebu attended by Ogre Transport President Mr. Dave Lim, LTFRB Regional Director Col. Eduardo C. Montealto, Jr. (Ret.), Toyota Mabolo representatives, LTFRB officers, and VIP guests, Ogre Transport launched its Silver and Gold premium taxis with 100 Innova units and 50 Hiace Commuter Deluxe units, respectively, all customized by Toyota for this partnership as the initial high-grade line-up.
“It is of great honor that we were chosen by Ogre Premium Taxi as their partner in mobility in bringing a new riding experience to the public,” Toyota Mabolo President Mr. Philip Lo said. He added that it is indeed a grateful experience to be partners “in delivering happiness to commuters and bringing them safely to their destination.”
With Toyota’s Quality, Durability, and Reliability, Cebuanos and tourists can now opt to travel around Cebu in a premium, safe, and most importantly, comfortable commuting experience.
