For a more convenient transport here in Metro, HPG chief superintendent Roberto Fajardo said that the HPG’s mandate is to ensure the safety of our local highways for the benefit of commuters and motorists. It also eyes to deliver smooth and safe flow of traffic in the streets.

“We support Angkas, as well as the transport operators legally franchised by the LTFRB, because it is a service that helps the commuters in safely going to and from their destinations,” Fajardo addressed. “The HPG and Angkas have the same objective and therefore we need to support each other.”

In case you missed it, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) recently approved the implementation of Angkas’ pilot run in Metro Manila and Metro Cebu for six months beginning June. Prior to this, the DOTr organized a Technical Working Group to discuss and conduct studies of the company’s operations, including its safety training program for their motorcycle rider-partners.

HPG also commended Angkas’ own training program, as well as its effort to participate in the government’s motorcycle rider safety training program.

During the event, Angkas turnover its 50 brand-new, high-quality helmets to the HPG. The brand claimed that it’s part of their safety advocacy.

Fajardo, on the other hand, said that the donated helmets will be part of the HPG riders’ new uniform and will be the perfect match for the new BMW motorcycles that they’ll be driving soon.
