Singapore-based firm says loosening of curbs raises demand for mobility

AS Metro Manila Plus areas graduate from modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) to general community quarantine (GCQ) with heightened restrictions, SWAT Mobility is expecting demand for public transportation to increase as more workers will start returning to work.

According to Theresa Busmente, SWAT Mobility Business Head for Philippine, companies, especially outsourcing businesses, are slowly increasing the number of employees in the workplace.

“Even before we were called to ECQ few weeks back, companies have already started re-introducing their employees back to the workplace,” said Busmente.

“This means more people will be commuting. But with limited public-utility vehicles available, commuters are expected to be caught between circumstances” she added.

Busmente explained curfew violations is not only the burden of the employee but the employers as well.

“This puts a lot of pressure to businesses whether to continue operating or cut operations earlier to allow employees time to get home safely,” she said.

According to Busmente, partnering with a transport solution like SWAT Mobility might be the best option for companies, both big and small, to ensure that their employees are not caught between curfew hours and the dilemma of limited public transportation options.

SWAT Mobility is a Singapore-based transportation solutions and is the first to run high-capacity vehicle pooling services in Asia.
