II. Selection Criteria

  1. The LCT Project shortlisted three companies as potential partners based on their level of interest to develop an EV Program with the LCT Project, and their alignment with the qualifications described in Paragraph 2 and summarized in Table 1.
  2. Table 1 – Partnership Agreement Outputs

    EV Program Requirements Description Grab Sakay Lalamove
    Project Output Indicator 3.1.1 Number of entities involved in the commercialization of low carbon transport systems by EOP
    Project Output Indicator 3.2.2 Cumulative investments in low
    carbon vehicles by EOP.
    Sub-activity 3.2.3 Introduce and operationalize at least 15-20 new hybrid vehicles of EVs for mass transit.
    Output 4 Increase consumer awareness on electric vehicles.
    Create a new revenue stream for PUV Operators.
    1. Prior to selecting these companies, the LCT Project worked with the DOTr to reach out to all registered TNCs in their database. Out of all the referred TNCs, only Grab and Lalamove expressed interest to work with the LCT Project and develop and EV Program.
    2. As mentioned in Paragraph 3, Sakay was selected because it is the only shortlisted company that can fulfill Sub-activity 3.2.3 because of its mission to support jeepneys, buses and tricycles. The other TNCs are focused on taxi or ride hailing services, which is not considered mass transit. Lalamove’s LalaJeep Program attempts to convert jeepneys into cargo logistics providers, so it is not considered a “mass transit” modality.
