Robinsons Offices in collaboration with Global Electric Transport (GET), has taken a significant step towards further boosting accessibility to its premier Destination Estate, Bridgetowne, by introducing an electric transport service from and to Robinsons Galleria. Bridgetowne Destination Estate is straddled between Quezon City and Pasig City enjoying a three-way access through C5, Ortigas Ave., and Amang Rodriguez Ave., whereas Robinsons Galleria is known for its accessibility being 600m away from the Ortigas Station of the MRT.

The City Optimized Managed Electric Transport (COMET) shuttle service, powered by GET, offers an enjoyable and eco-friendly way to travel.
