Better Taxi is hirna!

Premier taxi-hailing app Hirna is now in CDO and Iligan.

Fresh from achieving its dominant leadership position in Davao, Hirna is now offering its innovative ride-hailing app to more key cities in Mindanao.  Passengers in Mindanao have long been clamoring for a reliable, safe and ‘zero-booking fee’ hailing service…and Hirna is finally addressing their request.

The country’s premier taxi-hailing app will have its CDO and Iligan launch on July 24. “We are really excited to improve the quality of lives of the commuters to more key cities in Mindanao.  Given these launches, our vision of uplifting the Pinoys’ taxi ride experience continues to be realized,” said Francisco ‘Coco’ Mauricio, Hirna President, and CEO.

The largest taxi operators associations in the region have partnered with Hirna for its operations:
Hirna is in partnership with Association of United Taxi Operators (AUTO) in Cagayan De Oro, while in Iligan City, they are in partnership with Bagong Iligan Transport Service Cooperative (BAGITSCO). In total, Hirna has almost 600 taxi units for both cities.

“We are happy to have Hirna in CDO.  Cagayan de Oro taxis have been known to be polite and disciplined and now with Hirna, we can further improve our service through better convenience and more safety”, says AUTO President Dodong Clemenia.  “Passengers in Iligan have been clamoring for a ride-hailing app as they heard the success of Hirna in Davao.  We are proud to be part of Hirna’s network in Mindanao!” said BAGITSCO President Jhun Lladora.

Hirna provides passengers with a lot of features to ensure safety and convenience.  These include Track My Ride function (send your location to your loved one), Driver and Vehicle Rating System, In-app Messaging, Push Banner Alerts and a whole lot more.  Hirna even has a live customer service support to ensure that anyone can book a ride, even those without smartphones.

“With our full launch this July, we will start our our promo and ad campaigns for maximum awareness.  We do hope the passengers in CDO and Iligan come to embrace and love us as they do in other cities.” added Mauricio.

“Watch out for more awesome updates really soon. Better Taxi is Hirna!”

The app can be downloaded from both iOS App Store and Google Playstore for Android phones. Contact the customer hotline numbers 09171114888 and 09992214888 for any inquiries.
