SM’s Bulacan Malls in Baliwag and Pulilan recently collaborated with their respective municipal governments to launch Wheels-On-the-Go, an alternative livelihood project for jeep and tricycle drivers in the community.
With this, local jeep and tricycle drivers have the opportunity to become the town’s partner delivery riders and get service fees for every transaction following standard rates assigned by their respective associations.
Bulacan Wheels On-the-Go lets customers call designated delivery service hotlines to place an order. Each customer will be given an assigned partner delivery rider to purchase orders at chosen stores at SM Malls in Baliwag and Pulilan. Orders will be delivered right at their doorstep. Payments are made through cash on delivery.
In Pulilan, Bulacan Wheels On-the-Go has around 1,000 authorized riders who cater to all establishments in the town. In the future, 50% of Pulilan’s 4,000 drivers are targeted to join the program.
“We at SM continue to finds ways to support the community. With Bulacan Wheels On-the-Go project, we are glad to be of help to the transportation sector while we keep up with the new norm,” says SM Center Pulilan Assistant Mall Manager Alvin De Galicia.
Prior to this, SM City Baliwag and the municipal government were able to provide alternative income to some 80 tricycle drivers turned delivery riders under the Bulacan 3 Wheels On-the-Go program.
Each tricycle drivers gets P100 for every delivery service transaction, as well as benefits like good and flexible working hours, protective gears and uniforms.
