Manila, 10 October 2015:  SOLAR Transport & Automotive Resources Corporation (STAR Corp.), the exclusive distributor of BYD vehicles in the Philippines, has announced its BYD Tulong Tuesdays campaign, which offers Emergency Roadside Assistance to motorists and car owners plying the streets of the City of Mandaluyong.  The service is open to all types of cars and brands and is STAR Corp's way of extending the same 5-Star service commitment it provides to BYD customers to the motoring public.

According to Mark Andrew Tieng, managing director of STAR Corp., "The BYD Tulong Tuesdays Campaign is our way of giving back to the citizenry and the city of Mandaluyong for the two years that we have been in operations."

Present at the campaign's launch, which was held at the BYD showroom at SHAW Boulevard, was no less than the honorable Mayor of the City of Mandaluyong, Benjamin "Benhur" Abalos, who expressed his appreciation and excitement for the BYD Tulong Tuesdays campaign.

"I'm looking forward to the campaign, which I believe can help the Philippine National Police Highway Patrol Group in harmonizing the city's traffic system, especially nowadays when we are experiencing heavy traffic along Shaw Boulevard since concentration of the traffic alleviation efforts are focused on EDSA," said Mayor Abalos.

"I would like to thank Mr. Mark Tieng and BYD Philippines for this initiative, which I'm sure will be successful," stated Mayor Abalos who has been known for personally apprehending drivers who violate traffic rules.  During his remarks, Mayor Abalos committed to show his support for the BYD Tulong Tuesdays CSR campaign by sending the City of Mandaluyong Police and Traffic Department to provide help and assistance every Tuesday as the BYD BRO goes around the city.

The BYD Tulong Tuesdays emergency roadside assistance will be carried out on all Tuesdays from 9:00am to 5:30pm by the BYD BRO Mobile Assist together with BYD's trained and highly skilled technicians in agreed areas within the City of Mandaluyong.
