55-Year Old Taxi Driver Offers Free Rides To Passengers In Baguio

A 55-year old taxi driver for 15 years named Raymundo Bersalona is sharing his blessings by offering free rides to passengers in Baguio City. He says giving free rides is a yearly tradition for him and a way of giving back to the community.

According to him: "I do this for the glory of God, sa ating Panginoon. Binabalik ko lang yung blessing na pinagkakaloob Niya sa akin, na dapat lang bawa't isang tao, kung biniyayaan ka ng pagpapala syempre kung meron kang puso na mapagbigay, bigay mo rin para tuloy-tuloy yung biyaya ng Diyos para sa'yo."

Dee BA Abbara, one of Raymundo's passengers posted her experience on Facebook.
Abbara said she hailed Raymundo's taxi to bring her to a terminal. The taxi driver told her that she won't be charged for the trip. 

Abarra's post on Facebook received close to 4,000 likes and has been shared about 400 times.

Raymundo is living in a small house in Baguio with his wife and son. Two of his children are now working abroad.

Aside from giving free rides, Raymundo also used his taxi to serve as an ambulance in their barangay.
