Move It, a homegrown motorcycle taxi company powered by Grab, recently launched a comprehensive rider-partner welfare and engagement program at the “Move It Tropang Malupet“ event held at the PICC Forum, which welcomed thousands of rider-partners as well as aspiring applicants eager to join Move It’s growing communities of “kuya ng kalsada.”

Dedicated to enhancing the economic well-being of local motorcycle taxi service providers, the expanded “Tropang Malupet” welfare program encompasses optimized earning opportunities, economic assistance, aid and relief initiatives and community engagement.

Move It continues to find ways to improve the lives of its rider-partners and their loved ones and help them achieve upward socioeconomic mobility. With Grab’s support, Move It strives toward being the safer, more reliable and most affordable motorcycle taxi that Filipinos can always depend on.

In his remarks, Move It general manager Wayne Jacinto highlighted the impact of the upgraded Move It app to the experience of passengers and the earnings potential of rider-partners.

The new Back-to-Back Booking feature on the app allows rider-partners to accept a new booking even as they accomplish an ongoing one, boosting their productivity on the platform. With the BTB Booking feature, tech upgrades and growing consumer demand, the earnings potential of rider-partners has doubled versus last year.

To guarantee that rider-partners are able to achieve optimum earnings on the platform, Move It offers the lowest commission rate in the industry, complemented by income-boosting initiatives. Among these is Ka-Move It Rewards, an incentive scheme designed to reward rider-partners who successfully complete missions such as achieving specific booking targets, maintaining high passenger ratings and fulfilling minimum online hour requirements.

Through Move It Parcel Delivery, on the other hand, rider-partners can accept parcel-delivery orders during non-peak hours for motorcycle hailing.

The company‘s dedication to its rider-partners goes beyond offering livelihood opportunities. Recognizing the challenges they encounter on the road, it has introduced the Move It Malasakit Social Welfare Program, which extends financial assistance to rider-partners in need of emergency top-ups or those who experience accidents while online, complementing the existing insurance coverage allocated for Move It rider-partners.

Move It Malasakit also covers aid and relief for rider-partners during calamities and national emergencies.

Powered by leading superapp Grab, Move It is now also able to extend Grab’s microfinancing programs to its rider-partners, providing an essential financial lifeline for them. And rider-partners are now eligible to apply for educational support through GrabScholar, a comprehensive educational support program comprising bursary support, BPO career acceleration opportunities and even full-ride college scholarships.

Move It rider-partners have also been given full access to GrabAcademy, an online learning feature embedded in the driver app. GrabAcademy contains online classes on road safety, computer basics and passenger handling.

Move It consistently organizes forums and town halls with its rider-partners to facilitate discussions on upcoming features and to promptly address situations faced by the community. In addition to these activities, the company also offers supplementary programs tailored to the interests of its rider-partners.

For instance, an exciting announcement made at the event was the launch of Ka-Move It Liga — an inter-community basketball league with a grand prize of P300,000 and various consolation prizes totaling more than P500,000 in value. This initiative is set to bring rider-partners together in a spirit of competition and unity.
