Commuters around the metro received some sad news upon hearing that carpooling service Wunder Carpool will be stopping their operations in Manila in order to focus on collaborations with national and local governments for better mobility solutions.
Wunder users and drivers were emailed by the company explaining their reasons for closing down, even sharing the achievements accomplished such as 30,000 less cars used daily, 14,000 tons of carbon dioxide avoided, and even 1.7 billions smartphones charged.
The carpooling service will continue until the 28th of June, for which Wunder advises those with balance in their Wunder Wallet to withdraw before their app is officially taken off App Stores.
Wunder remains active in over 50 cities worldwide helping improve transportation for people, and while they will no longer operate in Manila, they advise that people reach out to local entities like the MMDA and LTFRB for carpooling regulations.
Though they will close for public use, Wunder is still offering services for companies who may be interested in having a carpooling system for employees. Inquiries can be made at their official website.
