HYPE goes full swing in Metro Manila
HYPE Transport Systems, Inc., one of the newest all-Filipino transport network companies (TNC) to enter the scene, recently held its first ever HYPE FEST at the SMX Convention Center, Pasay. The event gathered drivers, operators, and the riding public to celebrate the company’s latest milestone as it goes full swing in its operations in Metro Manila.
The festivities were led by HYPE President Nicanor Escalante, celebrity ambassador Piolo Pascual, and TV actress Andrea Torres who provided entertainment to the crowd as they made their way through different fun and game booths by various partner companies of HYPE; but the biggest highlight of all was the grand raffle which sent one lucky winner home with a brand new Toyota Vios.
In his message to the attendees, Escalante said, “When we first envisioned HYPE, we had a vision to provide the Filipino riding public a viable choice. We wanted the Filipinos to have the power to choose the most affordable, the safest, the most convenient, and with the most number of transport options possible. We are proud to say that as the Filipino riding public has begun to support HYPE, more and more of our drivers—both TNVS and taxi cabs—will continue to enjoy more and more earnings by using the app, and will most definitely enjoy more surprises from us and our partners.”
During his speech, Escalante further announced a promo-incentive for drivers who complete a pre-determined number of trips. This competition has P1 million in prizes up for grabs for diligent drivers. Jennifer Silan, HYPE Chief Operating Officer, also presented a number of promo-incentive schemes for the riding public.
The event sponsored by SMART, PLDT, Phoenix Petroleum, Rapide, Hunters, Huawei, Connext Marketing (BAJAJ), Toyota Lipa, Manila Broadcasting Corporation, and Star City; was hosted by internet sensation Ashley Rivera, was graced by Filipina actress, host, dancer, and commercial model Andrea Torres of GMA 7; with Ransom Collective, an all-Filipino indie folk band entertaining the audience; and capped off by the performance of sought-after DJ Patty Tiu.
