    “TMP is offering the TCS as part of the Company’s corporate social responsibility and in commemoration of TMP’s 35th anniversary. Through TCS, TMP aims to contribute to improving the quality of life in these communities by providing free, easier, smarter and safer mobility,” TMP president Atsuhiro Okamoto said.

    The TCS’ booking service will be delivered via the “myToyota Shuttle PH” application, which is under Toyota Mobility Solutions Philippines’ mobility service arm.

    Accessible via downloadable mobile device application, the “myToyota Shuttle PH” lets commuters book their rides, monitor the real-time location, and check the arrival time of the TCS unit. It also optimizes route planning and seat booking.

    “We want to create positive social value in our beneficiary communities through the provision of free mobility. But the TCS is not only helpful in creating a hassle-free ride experience for commuters. It also complements the current efforts of our project beneficiaries towards becoming a smart city and 'sustainable eco-city’ through increased connectivity and mobility, among others,” Okamoto added.

    Santa Rosa City is identified as a “Next Wave City” and has strong initiatives to transform into a “High-level Smart City”. Pasay City, also known as the “Travel City” is leading initiatives to transform into a “Sustainable Eco City”. Both cities are embracing innovation and digitalization to improve the quality of life in their communities in all areas including transportation. This aligns with TMP’s vision of providing easier, smarter and safer mobility for people.

    Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) 35th Anniversary

    Last August, TMP celebrated its 35th year and reaffirmed its commitment to economic and societal development through its automotive manufacturing and distribution business and mobility-related services.

    Globally, Toyota envisions solutions focusing on “Connected, Autonomous/Automated, Shared, and Electrified” (CASE) concepts of future mobility.

    Reintroduced in the market as a light commercial vehicle last year, the Toyota Lite Ace comes equipped with a 1.5-liter gasoline engine that is paired to a five-speed manual transmission.
