Perhaps all the ‘habal-habals’ in the city could be legitimized soon. This after motorcycle hailing app ANGKAS announced it is coming to Cagayan de Oro City.
This was confirmed thru a post at its Twitter account.

Similar to Grab and other transport network vehicle service (TNVS) providers, commuters can download the app for free at either Google Play or App Store and book their pick-up and drop-off locations to get a fixed price. Angkas has operations in Metro Manila and Cebu.
Angkas fares usually start at P50 for the first 2km and P10 for every succeeding kilometer. Accordingly, prices may vary based on demand. Also, the company also has its motorcycle delivery service.
Habal-habal has been a preferred mode of transport for many commuters in the city especially at night in destinations where public transports are limited. Unlike 4-wheeled vehicles, motorcycles can get through traffic. Despite their illegal status, their operations continue.
