Maxim now a new player in motorcycle taxi market in Metro Manila

MANILA, Philippines — E-hailing company Maxim recently took part in a pilot project aimed at developing motorcycle transportation in Metro Manila. The company then announced the launch of affordable motorcycle rides, which users can already order via the Maxim app.

Maxim has also obtained a TNC license and a car transportation permit from the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB). This means that you can already order a ride in an official taxi car, with private car rides also available in several cities.

Maxim declared that its prices are more affordable than those offered by the current market participants.

If you want to order a motorcycle taxi, look no further than Maxim’s MotoTaxi rate, which includes the services of a professional motorcycle rider trained in Maxim’s own training center.

This mode of transportation can come in handy for safe rides, allowing the drivers to avoid traffic jams and significantly reduce transportation costs. Both the driver and the passenger are insured in case of any incidents during the ride. In Metro Manila, the price of motorcycle rides starts at P50.

Opting for the new Taxi rate will get you an official taxi car, and the price of your ride will be calculated by a taximeter. If you compare the ride price for the same route with other companies, you’ll see that Maxim’s price is lower due to the low-cost booking fee.

This rate is already available in Manila, Cebu, Davao, Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan-de-Oro, Iligan and Iloilo. The company is planning to make this rate available in other cities as well.

Using the Car rate, you can order a private car in Iloilo and Bacolod. In this case, the ride price is calculated automatically according to the distance of the optimal route and remains fixed, regardless of the time the ride takes. This allows passengers to know the ride price in advance and easily plan their expenses.

Moreover, Maxim aims to provide a more transparent and controlled pricing to compete with other ride-hailing services, especially during the peak hours.

Maxim started operating in the Philippines in 2020. For quite a long time, it mostly offered delivery of
