MANILA - Newly accredited ride-hailing firm Go Lag is aiming to launch its app and start accepting drivers 15 days from now or around the second week of May, its spokesperson said Monday. 

Go Lag said it will have lower fares than its competitors and its surge pricing will be only 1.5 times the normal rate, company spokesman Willie Bercasio told DZMM Teleradyo. 

Bercasio said that they will also not allow drivers to cancel bookings once they have accepted it. 

"Sa ngayon po, since mas mababa kami sa ibang TNC [transport network company], iniisip po namin eh lahat halos ng mga pasahero ay mag-ga-gravitate towards us," Bercasio said. 

He said they are also confident that the promise of getting more bookings from a cost-conscious public would be enough to entice drivers to switch to their system. 

Interested drivers may visit the Go Lag Facebook page to leave their contact details, Bercasio said. 

Go Lag, which was accredited by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board last Friday April 20, was originally looking to operate only in the Laguna province.

"Actually, Go Laguna po yun," Bercasio said about their company name.
