Motorcycle taxi service Angkas is collaborating with the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Riding Academy in a groundbreaking initiative aimed at elevating rider training and passenger safety.

In a gesture that goes beyond the donation of motorcycles and essential equipment, Angkas has committed to sharing its specialized riding curriculum with the MMDA Riding Academy. This curriculum, honed through years of experience and refinement, focuses not only on effective motorcycle operation but also on safe and responsible riding practices while carrying passengers.


Angkas said that rider safety has always been a top priority, adding that this partnership exemplifies the company’s commitment to fostering a culture of responsible motorcycling across the region. By lending its riding curriculum to the MMDA Riding Academy, Angkas aims to empower future riders with the knowledge and skills required to navigate the roads safely, efficiently, and with the utmost consideration for passengers.


“We are excited to join forces with the MMDA Riding Academy in this important endeavor,” said George Royeca, CEO at Angkas. “Our curriculum is a product of years of experience and collaboration with experts in motorcycle safety. By sharing this curriculum, we hope to contribute to the development of a new generation of riders who prioritize safety and professionalism.”

The partnership between Angkas and the MMDA Riding Academy also underscores the widespread recognition of Angkas’s training methods. Notably, the same curriculum has been adopted by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) for its rider training programs. This recognition speaks to the high standards of safety and professionalism that Angkas upholds.

Angkas’s contribution to the MMDA Riding Academy includes a donation of motorcycles, helmets, and other essential riding equipment, in addition to the sharing of its riding curriculum. These resources are seen to play a pivotal role in enhancing the quality of rider training and safety education in the region.

The collaborative effort between Angkas and the MMDA Riding Academy aims to create a positive ripple effect throughout the community, fostering safer roads and raising awareness about responsible motorcycle operations. As both organizations work together to cultivate a culture of safety, they hope to inspire other stakeholders to prioritize rider education and passenger well-being.
