Angkas resumes operations with the following changes:
Cashless and digital
Passengers will pay using credit or debit card to minimize contact and prevent transmission. The ride-hailing app calls this "Angkashless."
Bring your own helmet
If you're a frequent Angkas rider, it's best to invest in a helmet as passengers are required to bring their own for hygiene purposes and as a safety precaution against the virus.
Bikers get tested
For everyone's safety, bikers will undergo regular RT-PCR testing.
Passengers shields are here
The plastic barriers are meant to minimize transmission and maintain distance between biker and passenger.
