Traffic sucks! Still, most of us Filipinos choose to get stuck in traffic inside our own car rather than slug it out in a jeep or bus jam-packed with other passengers.
The steadily rising demand for Grab and other TNVS proves that passengers would rather cough up extra bucks for a surefire ride than to wait for heavy traffic to subside. In this category belong the millennials, the young blood who often find themselves in this situation because they love to rove and relax after a very tiring week.
Millennial is a term used to describe the generation born in the year 1982 up to late 2000. With its total population of 71 million worldwide, millennials have become a force to reckon with.
