LTFRB to resume processing TNC and TNVS applications
Taxi operators and drivers will just have to improve their services instead of crying to the courts about losing customers to online transport systems.
That's what will have to happen after the Quezon City Regional Trial Court (QCRTC) discarded the motion of transport groups 'Stop and Go' and 'Angat Tsuper' to stop the processing of applications and operations of various online transport systems including Uber, Grab and U-Hop.
"QC RTC dismisses the motion of Stop and Go to stop DOTC and LTFRB from allowing operations of TNVS such as Uber/Grab/U-Hop," said the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) on their official Twitter account.
"It is high time for taxi drivers to improve their behaviors and to remove among their ranks rude, undisciplined and, worst, scalawag drivers. This is the public perception that has now been created after LTFRB received several incidents of this nature," said Atty. Winston Ginez, LTFRB Chairman.
"I call on them to be part of the solution to leave a positive imprint in the minds of our commuting public that taxis are here to stay because of their excellent service, clean and well maintained vehicle and most of all safe," he added.
