AYALA MALLS is planning to launch more electric vehicle (EV) charging and transport systems in its malls in Metro Manila.

The company, in partnership with AC Industrials’ Integrated Micro-Electronics, Inc. and Global Electric Transportation (GET Philippines), launched the first integrated EV charging and transport system at Ayala Malls The 30th and Ayala Malls Circuit in December.

GET Philippines manufactures electric shuttle buses called COMET, which ply multiple zones within Metro Manila.

“More EV charging and transport systems will be installed within January 2022, including Ayala Malls Manila Bay and TriNoma,” it said.

“Ayala Land is delighted to be part of this pioneering initiative through Ayala Malls. We are certainly pleased that we are able to provide an efficient and modern-day access for the public for them to get to their different points of interest through more sustainable means. This further underscores our desire to achieve a healthier and cleaner environment for everyone, especially our patrons,” Ayala Land President and CEO Bobby Dy said.
