DPWH, Uber work together to ease traffic congestion


Ridesharing app Uber is offering its big data technology platform to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to help fund the government’s infrastructure programs.

“DPWH Sec. Mark Villar has embraced technology and Uber, through the online tool we call Movement, would like to be of help in every way we can,” said Laurence Cua, general manager at Uber.

Cua said Movement can help government planners determine improvements in travel times once the BGC-Ortigas Center link is built, or the proposed bridge between Binondo and Intramuros, or once the Stage 3 of the Skyway is completed.

Based on an analysis of existing data before and after the June opening of the NAIA Expressway (NAIA-X), average travel times to and from the airports, from various starting points like Pasig, Rockwell and Makati, eased by a few minutes on average, even if at-grade trips are included in the computations.

Given this, Uber is supporting the extension of the NAIA-X all the way to the Bonifacio Global City to maximize its potential for faster travel.
