(Inside Manila) Earlier, the law giving students 20% discount in all public utility vehicles has been amended, providing them the discount on Monday to Sunday, including summer breaks, legal and special legal holidays.



Yes! You read it right. But how about the transport booking services like Grab, Uber and Angkas? Of course they are still covered by the law. And here are the steps to avail their student discount:


Grab


Students from pre-collegiate to collegiate levels (excluding Masters and PHDs) with valid Student IDs and current school Registration Forms may apply for the Grab's Student Discount.


Step 1: Take a clear photo of your Student ID, another government-issued ID (Driver's License, Passport, etc.) and your current School Registration form so you can upload it when you answer the required form.


Step 2: Upload your documents here (https://grabph.typeform.com/to/hpphWP) and answer the form. 


Step 3: After accomplishing the form, wait for Grab to contact you.


Note: Make sure that your mobile number and email address are connected to your Grab account so they can send you an exclusive promo code you will use every time you book a ride.  


Uber


Uber’s requirements are nearly identical to that of Grab’s.


Step 1: To avail Uber discount, kindly attach a photograph of your student ID, PWD card, or another government-issued ID (Driver's License, Passport, etc.) and your current School Registration form


Step 2: Open this link -> https://help.uber.com/h/0ab71ebf-355a-4020-b27a-f7e559a4be8c?state=O2M-fDj4iiF4gXDFwFGBBpFK4O1DcQPBW0rpgVVE7JE%3D#_


Step 3: Fill up the form and wait for Uber to verify your documents before contacting you. Uber usually takes up to 24 hours to approve your Student Discount Application.


Note: Yes! Like Grab, make sure that your mobile number and email address are connected to your Uber account.


Angkas


With Angkas, the application for the discount is easier and faster.


Step 1: Prepare and take a photo of your school ID and current Student registration form.


Step 2: Together with your Angkas mobile number, message the photos on their official Facebook account or slide a direct message thru their official Twitter account and tell the administrator that you’re applying for the student discount.


Step 3: Wait for Angkas to verify your requirements.


Note: Just like what Angkas said, the clearer your pictures are, the faster your application will be.
