Angkas has been a lifesaver for Pinoy commuters most especially after Uber left the TNVS arena. However, Angkas’ ride-hailing operations were halted November last year by the LTFRB, on the basis that Angkas violates Republic Act No. 4136 or the Land Transportation and Traffic Code.
Since then, Angkas has shifted to a new business model. From being an “on-demand app-based motorcycle taxi service”, the Angkas app can now be used as a roadside delivery service, similar to Grab Express and Lalamove. If you need to have small packages delivered, you can use Angkas Padala to book a driver to have the package delivered on the same day. Here’s how it works:
Grab Angkas App: How to Book Angkas Padala
- Enter your pick-up and drop-off locations. Doing so would show you the exact price of the Angkas Padala service.
- Tap the “Book” button. The Angkas app would then start searching for available Angkas drivers to accept your Angkas padala request.
- When the Angkas driver gets to your location give him the package to be delivered and settle the fees. Note that the fee must be paid directly to the Angkas driver.
- Wait for the delivery to be completed.

Angkas Padala Price
The overall price of the Angkas Padala service would depend on the distance between the pick-up and drop-off locations. Fares start at P50 for the first 2km and P10 for every succeeding km. The Angkas app website also states that “prices may vary based on demand”.
Angkas Promo Code
Angkas Promo codes are usually offered by the Angkas padala app, especially when you are a new user. You may be offered Angkas promo codes for discounts on a certain number of rides if it’s your first time to book from the Angkas app. For example, when Angkas padala finally became available in Cagayan de Oro; new users may use the Angkas Promo Code ANGKASCDO to get P30 off the first 3 bookings.
Angkas Cebu users were also treated to the promo code AKSELTZER for a Php 20.00 discount off 3 bookings (limited to 4,000 redemptions only).
On certain occasions the Angkas app also offers new promo codes that are available even to existing users. Follow the Angkas Facebook page to stay updated on Angkas promo code offers.
Aside from Cagayan de Oro, Angkas is now also available on Cebu. Last year, Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña reportedly took over Angkas Cebu operations, following the public’s clamor for its cancelled service. We’re unsure if the Angkas Cebu takeover was executed, but for now Cebuanos may enjoy Angkas’ delivery services.
