Picture this: you’re set on a date with that special person. You have this table reservation at a fancy restaurant, you’re all dressed for the occasion. Everything is set to run smoothly, except for one thing: you’re from North, the other one’s from South.
It is one big dilemma for people who are in a relationship or even those with friends on the opposite end. The distance and Manila traffic is between them, making it hard to meet for a short date or a brief catch up. But thanks to the local commute app Sakay.ph, you would find a way to meet your loved ones no matter how far they are.
Sakay.ph was created to guide Filipino commuters to go around Metro Manila through different public transportation methods. Now, it offers more than a guide—it can also lead you to perfect places where you can meet your loved ones halfway from where you are through Sakay Halfway.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Sakay.ph introduces Sakay Halfway, a special new in-app feature tells people where they can meet halfway in Metro Manila. Once a user enters their locations, the app automatically recommends their midway point and its nearby restaurants, malls, hotels and other establishments that can serve as their date spot.
"We think the greatest barrier to true love isn't strict parents or incompatible preferences. Traffic and distance, actually. Admit it, dating someone isn't a problem until you find out where they live. And then it's like, 'sinong mag-aadjust?’" says Philip Cheang, Co-founder & CEO of Sakay.ph
With this new feature, couples and friends don’t have to “go the distance” just to meet. With Sakay.ph gives you an option on how you can compromise. We can’t wait to hear your catch up and date stories!
