Leading transport network company Grab is planning to expand its GrabCar services to more cities in the Philippines, one of which is Cagayan de Oro City.

In a news report from GMA Network, the launching of GrabCar will only be in cities with established GrabTaxi operations. Grab officially began its taxi services in Cagayan de Oro in March last year (LINK).

Unlike GrabTaxi, GrabCar uses private vehicles to pick you up and ferry you to your desired destination. Further, rates are charged per kilometer after the base fare which is P30 (Manila rate).

GrabCar usually uses sedans in their operations such as Toyota Vios, Hyundai Accent, Honda City, Mitsubishi Mirage, and Mitsubishi Lancer.

Owners of private cars may enroll their vehicles with GrabCar for extra income.

    A friend of mine was talking to one of the drivers for one of these taxi hiring services (I don’t remember if it was Grab, Uber, or some other), and the driver told her that drivers are bailing out on these services here because BIR is coming in and taking a cut on top of what the service itself is taking. Basically, when it is just cash going between a driver and a passenger, there isn’t much for BIR to take notice of. But when there are computer records and a cash flow moving through credit card transactions, et cetera, BIR definitely gets involved, and suddenly a PHP100 taxi far goes down by a substantial amount.
