Delivery Riders Get Free Parking, Charging Stations + More at This Mall

Looking forward to seeing more lounges like these around the Metro!

( With the enhanced community quarantine still in place in Metro Manila, malls remain mostly empty with the exception of those running essential errands and of course, delivery riders picking up necessities and bringing them straight to our homes. There's no denying how heavily many of us depend on these courier services and how much they've helped given the restrictions of the pandemic. To help make these everyday heroes' jobs easier, SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City opened Rider's Lounges where delivery riders can rest and regroup.

These Malls Set Up Lounges Where Delivery Riders Can Rest

SM Megamall opened two delivery riders' lounges where couriers can rest:

These in-mall dedicated open-air spaces feature several benches where riders can sit, rest, cool down, and gather their bearings during a busy day or in the midst of hectic delivery jobs. They're equipped with charging stations, too—there's no doubt that riders need their smartphones to fulfill orders and communicate with customers, so these charging stations could help eliminate at least one source of stress in their daily routine.

Riders also get a free bottle of water when they stop by these lounges. Traveling across the Metro to pick up and deliver items is no easy task—especially when coupled with EDSA traffic and shifting weather conditions—so a complimentary bottle could help couriers stay hydrated and keep them going. If you're ordering food and getting it delivered, you may want to offer your rider a drink and some snacks, too.

SM Megamall also offers free parking in a dedicated space for all delivery riders. That way, they won't have to struggle to find parking each time they drop by and they won't have to spend their own money just to get a parking spot. Here's hoping more malls in Metro Manila take better care of the delivery riders we're so dependent on these days!

You'll find a Rider's Lounge at the entrance to SM Megamall Mega A and Mega B on Julia Vargas Avenue, Mandaluyong City.
