Following the significant impact of the pandemic on the public transportation sector, GCash, the country’s leading mobile wallet, together with Globe and partner local government units (LGUs), have recently signed a Memorandum of Agreement to solidify its partnership with the PARA app, a digital platform for transportation utilizing tricycles, to help Filipinos have a safer, more convenient, and easier commute.

With this, commuters will soon be able to easily and safely book and pay for their tricycle fare and other ancillary services via the GCash app, without having to walk to the terminal and without the need for cash-on-hand, making it safer for both tricycle drivers and commuters. Commuters booking a ride in the Para app will also be able to pay using GCash via Webpay for a seamless transaction.

In addition to pushing for safer cashless transactions among tricycle drivers, GCash also previously partnered with Antipolo Market Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association (AMTODA), and Antipolo Sumulong College Lores Plaza Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association (ASCLP TODA) to roll out GCash QR, enabling drivers and passengers to have a safer and more secure commuting experience.

With Send Money, they can quickly transfer funds to loved ones. GSave lets them open a savings account with no minimum deposit and maintaining balance required. Meanwhile, GInvest allows them to invest and grow their finances for as low as P50, to help them prepare for the future.

Furthermore, there are services like the GCredit and GGives. These are credit products they can easily access. With these products now available to them with just a few taps, GCash continues to achieve its goal of financial inclusion for all
