Arcade City has launched a ride-sharing startup app this month to the Apple and Android app stores now available in Metro Manila and Cebu City, following the suspension of Uber for 30 days.
Claiming to be an alternative for Uber, Arcade City announced that they are recruiting and activating drivers’ same-day all across the Philippines to provide service in the gap left by Uber’s suspension.
“This has happened before. Arcade City wants to help make sure it never happens again,” Arcade City said in its Facebook page.

Arcade City was first launched in Austin, Texas last year after the withdrawal of Uber and Lyft. It built the world’s first governing ride-sharing network, now totaling over 43,000 members. Arcade City has provided safe, reliable city-wide transportation in Austin for the past fifteen months. Drivers in Austin communicate directly and coordinate rides with no corporate intermediary.
Moreover, drivers are free to set their own rates and riders are free to schoose their own drivers using the start-up sharing app.
Arcade City is the world’s first and only ride-sharing company providing reliable transportation to a major city with zero operating expenses in the region. Also, it has announced plans to allow drivers to share in the profits by issuing a blockchain-based crypto-equity token allowing for driver ownership and community governance.
Arcade City now launches its mobile app to help grow new peer-to-peer ride-sharing networks in countries all over the world.
