Senator JV Ejercito desires to act as “referee” between the Land Transportation and Franchising Regulatory Board (LTFRB) and Transport Network Vehicle Services (TNVS) similar to Grab and Uber.
The battle between LTFRB and TNVS stemmed from the previous’s order to impose a service ban on the ride-sharing service by rejecting new functions from Grab and Uber drivers.
“I will call for a meeting to mediate and come up with a compromise for both parties before July 26. I am not siding with anyone on this issue,” Ejercito stated.
“What’s important to consider here is the convenience and safety of the riding public. We would consider all remedies without disregarding the law,” stated Ejercito, vice chairman of the Senate Committee on Public Services.
He desires LTFRB, Grab, and Uber not solely to attain a compromise, but additionally to act on their shortcomings in making public transportation extra handy and secure for the general public.
