Gupalor said.
“At Uber, we work non-stop to ensure that we provide our Partner-Drivers with offerings to help them earn more. That’s why we are excited to work with Petron on providing our Partner-Drivers with special perks and discounts through the Uber x Petron Value Card,” Laurence Cua, Uber Philippines general manager said.
“Thousands of Uber Partner-Drivers are plying the roads of Metro Manila and Metro Cebu as more and more Filipino drivers are finding flexible earnings opportunities through Uber. Petron is the perfect partner for Uber Partner-Drivers since we have the widest retail network in the industry,” Gupalor added.
As of launch date, Uber had already released 5,000 Uber x Petron Value Cards to its Partner-Drivers. For those interested to avail, Uber will send an email communication to all active partners to invite them to sign-up for an exclusive Uber x Petron Value Card. Petron and Uber will also launch the same program for Uber Partner-Drivers in Cebu later this year.
