With the recent accreditation granted by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), commuters now have an addition to their ride-hailing app options. Micab has started its operation in Metro Manila after the issuance of their certification as the newest transport network company (TNC), last April 30.
Micab Philippines first launched its app in 2012 servicing the cities of Cebu, IloIlo, Bacolod and Baguio. The app was well-received by the people and has then since acquired positive feedbacks, which opens a potential market operation in Manila– making this possible by the app’s founders, Eddie Ybañez (Founder & CEO) and Kenneth Baylosis (Co-Founder & CTO).
The app offers a vital role for the taxi driver partners by helping them to earn back the trust of the daily commuters– giving the latter a safer and better ride with the Taxi 2.0 system. To ensure a smoother ride for the passengers, Micab conducts a comprehensive training program for the drivers. Not only that, the up-to-date app also comes with a ‘rate your driver’ feature that will be monitored and addressed by the company with the help of the LTFRB.

Now, at its first week of operation, the app continues to revolutionize the country’s ride-hailing schema as well as the Filipinos’ taxi service experience. Get to know the app more and what it offers!
Micab’s Fare Rates
One of the major factors that contributes to a one-of-a-kind on-demand ride booking app is the affordability and decency of the fare rates. Micab’s base fare starts at Php 40.00 with an additional of Php 13.50 per kilometer and Php 2.00 charge per minute going to the destination.
The good news for the app users is that we don’t have any hidden charges!
Our taxi drivers are very much aware of the fare rates, but a reminder for the valued customers: What you see on the meter is what you ONLY pay!
App’s Defining Features
Aside from utilizing thousands of working taxi units all over Manila and other areas of service, this hail a taxi app also provides cool features that gives convenience to the users. One of which is having a ride history log so you can review the details of the bookings you made within the app.
Other features include:
Taxis and taxi drivers themselves have made a not so good reputation specially in the Metro. With the help of Micab, we’re breaking the barriers set between the cabs and the riders through the Taxi 2.0 solution! We present the clean and modernized cabs in the service areas that will send you to your destination. In addition, as a result of the pre-on boarding seminars for the drivers, they are now trained how to handle customer service properly. Expect drivers that are well-mannered, friendly, kind and polite.
In light of the recent accreditation for Micab, we are happy to serve the commuters with their deserved daily travel convenience and fairness of rate!
