The Department of Labor says it will give away free bikes nationwide to individuals who wish to work as food couriers. The agency coordinated with restaurants who have delivery services within a radius of one to 1.5 kilometers. This program will launch on Monday in Metro Manila, starting with Pasig City.
“Magbibigay nga pala kami ng bisikleta sa buong bansa. Itong bisikleta na ibibigay namin sa mag-nenegosyo ng Grab, ‘yung magdedeliver. Kausap namin ‘yung mga restaurant na within a radius of one to one and a half kilometers dun na lang sa binigyan namin ng bisikleta yung delivery nila,” says Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello.
Bello announces that those who wish to acquire free bikes may inquire at DOLE offices.
