Ride-hailing app Angkas said Friday it would forgo its commissions from bookings on National Heroes Day so that its riders get to take home full fares in a tribute to the sacrifices of one of the pandemic frontliners.

Angkas said 100% of fares would go to the pockets of its drivers during the Aug. 29 holiday, describing them as "mga bayani" (heroes).

"Bilang pasasalamat sa araw-araw na sakripisyo ng ating mga bayani, sa kanila muna lahat ng matatanggap nilang pamasahe sa August 29," Angkas said.

"Maraming salamat. Deserve niyo to," it added.

Over the years, Angkas has grown to become a top transportation choice for Metro Manila commuters in a rush to get to their destination. 

At the height of COVID-19 lockdowns, Angkas shifted to delivering goods, including medicine, to Filipinos cooped up in their homes.
