(SPOT.ph) Metro Manila isn't exactly known for being the best place for commuters. Moving around the Metro means have to endure long lines, jampacked public utility vehicles, and, of course, conquering the heavy traffic situation on EDSA. But it looks like our list of choices for transport is getting even shorter than it already is. Wunder—a carpooling app—announced that it will be stopping operations in Metro Manila on June 28.
"We have decided to stop our operations in Manila in order to focus our resources in other mobility niches, in order to accelerate our vision of a better mobility ecosystem worldwide," Wunder said in an online statement. Users have until June 28 to either use or withdraw their remainding Wunder Wallet balance, except for Bonus Points, which are non-withdrawable. The app itself and their support channels will be available until July 12.
Wunder is pushing for the community to continue carpooling, with or without the app. "Our suggestion to you would be, connect with people who you've carpooled with on the Wunder app and keep that habit going," they said in the statement.
The carpool app is created by Wunder Mobility, a German-based company that focuses on improving people's lives by making commuting easier. They operate in more than 50 cities globally.
