CEBU CITY - Ride-hailing apps Uber and Grab will be available to city hall employees for a trial period of 6 months starting December, the city government said Friday.

Mayor Tomas Osmeña on Friday signed a memorandum of agreement with Uber and Grab, which city hall employees will use as transport services.

The city government will shoulder their employees' transport fare.

Grab country head Brian Cu said this will save paper trail and the cost of commuting or waiting for a vacant government vehicle.

After the trial period expires, the city government will decide which ride-hailing service they will use.
