The cheapest monthly parking I have seen is 5,000 p in Makati, often to 7 or 10k. Buying a parking spot is about 1 million p.
That alone pays for a lot pf Grab rides especially since there is no parking costs at the other end and they drop you off at the door.
On the other hand it has taken me over an hour start to pick up with Grab a few times, I simply schedule my travels for less busy times. It is better now I have top tier status since my rides are prioritized.
