“For the longest time, inter-island travel in our country has been lagging digitally.  Positively looking into the future, in a post-pandemic world, we would be an additional booster to the country’s tourism sector as traveling is made easier and convenient. At the heart of this project is the convenience of millions of Filipinos, tourists, students, and the hardworking Pinoys who go home to their families by sea just to be reunited,” said Arnold Castro, Speedy Ticket Venture Builder.

Speedy Ticket has already partnered with Trans-Asia Shipping Lines, Inc. for trips from Cagayan de Oro to Cebu and vice versa.  More trips will soon be available as it works to partner with more shipping lines this year.

 

Speedy Ticket is one of the chosen ideas from the first batch of the 917Ventures Velocity Program which helps aspiring entrepreneurs build a successful venture that would progress on to ultimately becoming a standalone entity.
