Manila, Philippines – 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.

A Visionary's Insight

Built from the ground up with the local community in mind, Xpress, with its transport services, is set to offer a seamless and efficient solution on getting around the Metro. 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. Its state-of-the-art mapping platform from Google ensures efficient driver-passenger matching, shorter wait times, and more seamless journey for the customers. 

Safety and Trust at the Heart of Every Journey

Partner drivers are meticulously screened and trained ensuring that 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, providing peace of mind for both drivers and passengers.

The platform also fosters a culture of respect and fairness through a mutual rating system–allowing both drivers and passengers to provide feedback, ensuring continuous improvement in the app’s 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.

Fostering Entrepreneurial Growth and Community Empowerment

Xpress, as an integral part of the PJLGC, is set to revolutionize the entrepreneurial landscape, providing a dynamic platform for both current and aspiring partner drivers, offering them a reliable source of income through ride-hailing services. 

In a strategic partnership with the Cebuana Lhuillier’s Kanegosyo Center, partner drivers have the unique opportunity to enhance their skills and knowledge through free access to valuable educational and financial literacy resources. 

Expanding Skilled Driver Fleet in Metro Manila

Xpress is continuously holding Driver Acquisition Onboarding and Training at Xpress Office for both 2W and 4W aspiring partner drivers to show its commitment in expanding its fleet of skilled and quality drivers. Partner drivers can drop by Xpress Training Office at 3 Brixton St., Brgy. Kapitolyo, Pasig City daily from Mondays to Fridays.
