The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) welcomed the move by the R&E Group of Taxis—Nine Stars, Sturdy, EFE and R&E fleet’s to deploy Global Positioning System (GPS) enabled technologies for efficient dispatching and taxi fleet management. “We commend R & E Group for investing in new technology to provide ease of transportation to commuters,” said Atty. Winston Ginez, LTFRB chairman. The R&E Group will be deploying a Taxi Booking System supplied by local tech-solutions firm Govago Inc., which was developed in Singapore. The R&E dispatching system is equipped with an emergency button that allows their drivers to immediately alert R&E’s call centre in case of emergency situations such as robbery or vehicle accidents. Passengers can download the R&E Taxi Booking app from Apple App store or Android’s Playstore. Bookings made through the app assure passengers are exclusively served by R&E taxis only.
