Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation is rolling out its Toyota Community Shuttle (TCS) program through a ‘libreng sakay’ (free ride) initiative in collaboration with the City Government of Pasay and the City Government of Santa Rosa.

Five brand new and air-conditioned Toyota Lite Ace units will be running on dynamic routes across  each city, operational between 6am and 6pm. 

The TCS is set to provide free rides for a year starting December 1, 2023 in Santa  Rosa City and December 2, 2023 in Pasay City.

“As part of the Company’s corporate social responsibility and in  commemoration of TMP’s 35th anniversary, the TCS aims to demonstrate how Toyota  can contribute to improving the Filipinos’ day-to-day mobility in these communities,” TMP president Atsuhiro Okamoto said. 

The TCS also aims to provide the practical benefits of Toyota’s new mobility  solutions through the ‘myTOYOTA Shuttle PH’—one of the flagship service platforms by TMP’s mobility service arm, Toyota Mobility Solutions Philippines, Inc. (TMSPH). 

This platform enables efficient on-demand shuttle management, simplifying route planning and seat booking. Commuters can easily book rides, track the real-time location of vehicles, and check arrival times through a downloadable mobile application on their personal devices.

“The TCS is not only helpful in creating a hassle-free ride experience for daily  commuters but is also complementary to the local government’s sustainable city or  ‘eco-city’ initiative, using such optimization and digital integration in intra-city transportation,” Okamoto added.

Santa Rosa City has a high number of employed individuals in manufacturing  industries and is home to major export-processing zones such as the Toyota Special  Economic Zone.

Pasay City, on the other hand, is a highly urbanized area with one of the country’s biggest  shopping, entertainment, and business centers that attract diverse groups of people.  

TMP celebrated its 35th year of incorporation in August 2023 with a reaffirmed  commitment to economic and societal development through its automotive  manufacturing and distribution business and mobility-related services.
