For the sake of the using public, Sen. Sonny Angara has referred to as on the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) and Transport Network Vehicle Services (TNVS) to sit down and “talk.”
Angara is anxious over the continuing battle between LTFRB and ride-sharing firms Grab and Uber. “I hope that both parties would come up with a compromise pact at the soonest time possible.”
“Ang mga Grab at Uber riders na ito ay ‘yung mga kababayan nating kadalasang dismayado na sa kapalpakan ng mga tren ng MRT (Metro Rail Transit) at LRT (Light Rail Transit),” Angara stated.
“Sila yung mga ‘ayaw na’ sa ilang mapag-samantalang taxi drivers na tumatangging sila ay isakay o kaya naman ay ‘yung walang-pakundangang naniningil ng dagdag pasahe maliban sa itinakda ng metro,” he stated.
The senator added, “But this is not to say that anyone is exempted from following existing rules and regulations.”
He was referring to “colorum” Grab and Uber autos plying the streets after the LTFRB suspended, since final 12 months, the processing of recent TNVS functions.
