“We are excited to be partnering with LRMC to be able to provide green and affordable transport solutions to every Filipino,” Mr. Tony Olaes, GET Worldwide Chairman, said.

The pilot implementation will see the shuttle service ply the route between LRT-1 EDSA Station and the Manila Bay ASEANA area with designated loading and unloading points along Macapagal Boulevard until Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX). For the second phase, the route will be extended from LRT-1 EDSA Station to the Makati Central Business District.
