A technical working group recommended to the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Congress to immediately “terminate” the implementation of the pilot study over motorcycle taxis.
KAMI learned that motor taxis could be considered “illegal” a week from now.
In a report by the ABS-CBN News, Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) official Antonio Gardiola Jr. claimed that Angkas could no longer operate soon and recommended to include it in the “blacklist.”
In a letter addressed to Transport Secretary Arthur Tugade, it was mentioned that Angkas defied the guidelines set by the technical working group.
“The study will not be able to produce/gather comprehensive data for analysis and evaluation as one participant, Angkas is deliberately questioning and arrogantly defying the guidelines set forth by the TWG,” it read.
According to the Philippine Star, other motorcycle hailing apps like Joyride and Move It is included in enforcement.
The LTFRB already submitted a report to the Senate Committee on Public Services to discuss the regulations about motorcycles as a mode of public transportation.
