My family once been part of this historic company,and soon been divided into sub-companies,the R&E taxi in manila, the Macabebe Express owned by Policarpio Enriquez of Macabebe,pampanga.after his death the bus line was managely continued by his eldest son Prospero Enriquez who soon later became a mayor of his town in a short period.sad to say the company lasted for 20 years,since 1973 to 1993.and was sold to Philippines Rapid.

My Grand father has worked in this company. I think he was one of the honest person who work in his time i think it was around 50's or 60's would you imagine he had returned almost 35,000 pesos and a a bag of jewelry and a lot of land titles... And i am very humble and proud to say that he returned all of this to his passenger. until now even though i didn't had the chance to meet my Grand father because he died to early i want to say that i am proud of him.

Anybody know patrolman Conrado Vargas and his family? Conrado was a driver for the La Mallorca taxi in 1968 to 1969. Conrado's last known address was Metro Manila. Conrado's office was in Valenzuela, Bulacan. Conrado had a son and a daughter who are probably still alive.
