After Ateneo win, Grab offers free rides to Katipunan

MANILA, Philippines – With Ateneo hailed as champions for UAAP Season 81 men's basketball, ride hailing giant Grab Philippines is offering free rides up to P250 to and from Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City.

The Ateneo Blue Eagles won against University of the Philippines (UP) Fighting Maroons on Wednesday, December 5, with a score of 99-81. Both universities are located along Katipunan Avenue, thus earning the monicker "Battle of Katipunan" for the game.

In a tweet right after Ateneo bagged the championship, Grab said it would offer free rides up to P250 by simply using the "GRABUAAP" promo code. More expensive rides will receive a discount of up to P300.

The offer is valid until December 6 at 11:59 pm.

The promo can be applied to rides to both universities and anywhere along Katipunan Avenue. It is also valid to rides going to UP Manila in Ermita.

The code can be used only once, with limited redemptions per day. –
