LTFRB to limit Uber and Grab vehicles to 45,000




Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) said that they will put a limit on the number of transport network vehicle services (TNVS) units plying Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

LTFRB believed that not all of the 125,000 registered drivers were active, thus resulting them to cap the TNVS units. Based on the agency’s Memorandum Circular No. 2018-003, TNCs will now be limited to just 45,000 cars in Metro Manila and nearby provinces including Bulacan, Rizal, Laguna, and Cavite. 500 cars will be allowed to operate in Metro Cebu, while 200 cars will be allotted in Pampanga as per the LTFRB.

The policy on a common supply base for TNVs was envisioned to create a distinct denomination for this type of public transport service and not defined by the individual business models of the TNCs, thus giving the Board a more focused regulatory function on such service. – Martin Delgra, LTFRB Chairman

Delgra also said that the agency will review the policy every three months after it becomes effective on February 3.

    Assuming the number of grab cars is correct at 55,000+, when LTFRB suspended uber’s operations, there was a shortage of TNVs and netizens expressed their disgusts in social media calling for lifting of the order.

    Kung sa 55,000+ kulang na kulang sa dami ng pasahero, ano pa kaya ang 45,000? Laking tanga talaga nitong si delgra. Hindi na natuto sa nangyari nuong pinahinto nila mag operate ang uber. Tapos ngayon, gusto nilang bawasan sa mahigit 60% ang TNVs. Conduct study first before slashing TNVs and not limit the cars first then a make study. This guy delgra don’t have common sense. Paano kaya yan naging abugado kung mahina ang utak?
