Commuters will be happy to know that Grab--Southeast Asia's largest app-based transport provider--is now offering free jeepney rides along EDSA via its new GrabJeep.

The GrabJeep, which can easily be distinguished thanks to its green exterior, will come equipped with Wi-Fi signal, television and air-conditioning. The vehicles will be ferrying passengers to various drop-off points along Manila's busiest thoroughfare completely free of charge for the next two months. The program revolves around the idea that all Filipinos should have access to a safe and convenient commuting experience.

But there's more to it than just the commuters. Grab is hoping that the GrabJeep and other similar programs can serve as a stepping stone toward the overhaul of our outdated transportation system. In line with this, passengers of the GrabJeep can donate to help in the upgrading of old, worn-down regular jeepneys.

Below is a list of GrabJeep stops along EDSA:

* Magallanes

* Ayala

* Buendia

* Guadalupe

* Boni

* Shaw Boulevard

* SM Megamall

* Ortigas Avenue

* Santolan

* Araneta Center

* SM North EDSA

According to Grab Philippines country marketing head Khriz Lim, the move is part of the company's mission to help drive the transport industry forward. "While we already have a diverse set of services in our app, it’s about time we took a look at the jeepney--one of the most traditional forms of transportation in the Philippines," he said in a statement. "We want to empower commuters with the same freedom we provide our passengers."
