Motorcycle taxi company Move It will deploy its technology to help the Philippine National Police (PNP) apprehend riders who violate the law.

The partnership followed the alleged involvemrnt of one of its riders in a recent robbery in San Juan.


Wayne Jacinto, Move It general manager, said the company is “aware that there is always a possibility that unscrupulous individuals could join Move It or use our uniforms, with the end in view of concealing their intention to commit crimes.”

“We assure the public that if Move It riders are indeed involved in any wrongdoing, we will be transparent about it, and we will utilize the technology in our app to trace the guilty parties so that they can be held accountable for their crimes,” said Jacinto.


He said that in the case of the San Juan robbery, the assistance extended by the motorcycle taxi company to police led to the identification and eventual capture of the suspects.

“When we received reports that an alleged Move It rider was involved in a crime, we immediately communicated with the PNP and worked to validate if the individual using a Move It uniform was one of our riders,” said Jacinto.

This, he explained, is “part of the protocols we have adopted in order to address incidents of this nature.”

After the suspects were detained by police, it was discovered that the Move-It rider was also working for another ride-hailing firm.
