What is Angkas?

Angkas is an on-demand app-based popular motorcycle taxi ride-hailing service. All across Southeast Asia, particularly in Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam, motor taxis have already become an accepted mode of transportation that gets hundreds of thousands of people past traffic jams.

With the worsening traffic situation here in Metro Cebu, commuters need more and better options fast to survive the daily traffic and reach their destinations on time. Honestly, I only use this app to book angkas for my girlfriend. So far, it is secure, safe and reliable.

Truly, an app that really saves you time when needed.
