New ride-hailing app, Xpress, gets green light from LTFRB

The largest micro financial services Group, PJ Lhuillier Group of Companies (PJLGC), more known as Cebuana Lhuillier, expands its portfolio by venturing into ridesharing as it launches Xpress Philippines App (Xpress).

The mobile app recently acquired licenses from Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) via its Transportation Network Company (TNC) for 4-wheel and Technical Working Group (TWG) Accreditation for 2-wheel, marking a new era in versatile and compliant urban mobility in Metro Manila.

With a commitment to safety, convenience, and affordability, Xpress is poised to become the go-to choice for Filipino commuters and foreign travelers alike.

Jean Henri Lhuillier, President and CEO of PJLGC and Chairman of Xpress, shares his vision for this expansive service:

“As we move further to going face-to-face with our daily transactions whether for business or personal, we saw the need to provide Filipinos with a platform that will aid them in traveling worry-free and seamlessly, thus the Xpress app was born. This app is tailor-fit to address the transportation needs of Filipinos, taking into consideration the safety of the drivers and their clients”. Also adding that this can be an alternative source of livelihood for existing and aspiring partner drivers.

Unique Technological and Service Diversification Xpress has proudly partnered with global tech giants like Google and Microsoft, to redefine ride-hailing experiences.

At Xpress, the safety and security of every booking are paramount. We meticulously screen and train our partner drivers, ensuring they are not only skilled in driving but also uphold the highest standards of moral character.

To enhance passenger security, the app includes an option for users to add emergency contacts, ensuring loved ones are informed in case of any emergencies. Additionally, every journey is safeguarded by Chubb Insurance, offering up to PHP 1,000,000 coverage per trip, providing peace of mind for both drivers and passengers. Our platform also fosters a culture of respect and fairness through a mutual rating system. This feature allows both drivers and passengers to provide feedback, ensuring continuous improvement in our services and maintaining an inclusive environment.

Affordable and reasonable pricing scheme

Xpress is committed to provide trustworthy and cost-effective transportation options to Filipinos. It offers a transparent pricing model, inline with the mandated pricing provided by the LTFRB ensuring customers know exactly what fare charge to expect, with no hidden fees.
