Stupid jeepneies ...

Old buses owned by somebody in the government ...

Stupid cargo trucks owned by somebody in the government, hence we never had cargo trains...

Will post the whole LTFRB BR 2018-096 once it is available on LTFRB website.
Hello Philippine Competition Commission, Angkas motor taxi is thriving.
Why not give more choices for the riding public?

Why is there not a law where public officials cannot own a franchise in transportation? there is conflict of interest there.

Anti-Red Tape Authority targets LTFRB

Quote:
MANILA, Philippines — The Anti-Red Tape Authority (Arta) has demanded an explanation from the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) on allegations that there were irregularities in its processing of hatchback drivers’ applications to become transport network vehicle services (TNVS) units.

In a notice of explanation sent to the agency on Wednesday, Arta director general Jeremiah Belgica ordered LTFRB Chair Martin Delgra III to comment, within three days, on seven issues regarding the processing of TNVS applications, including the transport board’s alleged failure to implement Memorandum Circular No. 2018-5.

Coming from an African TNVS company posted on World Economic Forum. Well convenient nga mag-Grab as alternative to taxis, nakakadagdag naman sa traffic, along with the boom of former commuters from the middle class na afford nang magka-sasakyan. Though not Philippine-related, it's still a good read though.

Ride-hailing apps are making the developing world's traffic problems worse
05 Aug 2019 - World Economic Forum
Mostafa Kandil - CEO and co-founder, Swvl
Quote:
Ride hailing has revolutionized transport across the globe. Once only found in the US and Europe, ride-hailing companies have quickly expanded into emerging markets such as Kenya, Nigeria, and Egypt. Because local transport in these places is often poor quality, unreliable and expensive, on-demand transport has provided a great service to consumers. In Africa alone, the need for convenient transportation has led to a surge of ride-sharing services on the continent with nearly 60 companies in operation across 21 African countries. But despite the benefits of ride hailing, it is a limited solution to transport problems in emerging markets and only works for a small share of the population.

Ride hailing puts more cars on traffic-choked roads and exacerbates standstill congestion in cities such as Cairo and Nairobi. The proliferation of ride-hailing companies has put a spotlight on the harm caused by ride hailing in emerging markets, and has exposed the need for alternative solutions, including on-demand mass transit.

9 years na akong nagwwork sa MM pero wala pa sigurong 15x ako nag white taxi dahil takot ako

Uber then was godsend. Tapos nagka Grab, tapos nawala Uber :/

As posted here several pages back by TGP on benefits / advantages of Uber vs. Taxi, no contest.

---

As always, simple lang naman bakit mas gusto ng tao mag sasakyan / TNVS: Because our public mass transpo absolutely sucks.

Gustong gawan ng paraan ng gov't as per JICA roadmap masterplan, kaso yung anak ni FPJ tutol naman sa EP.

So, wala.

Traffic is going to increase whether there is TNVS or not so I'm glad Grab is there as an *option*. I have two cars and can easily bypass the coding but there will be times taking Grab makes absolute sense, specifically when going to places you know parking will be non-existent (i.e. St Luke's QC, most restaurants in Timog and Tomas Morato, a friend's house in Cubao, etc). It doesn't matter how much the surge, if anything I wish LTFRB didn't impose a surge cap so drivers will be given the incentive to drive even during peak hours and bad weather. As long as there are people willing to pay (like me), the price should go as high as it can be as getting a ride on the occassional "emergency" can be priceless.

The LTFRB is the root cause of all transport problems in this country and their handling of the TNVS is absolutely pathetic. This is the same agency that allowed the bus system to baloon to the extent it has become more off a problem than a solution. It should be abolished and if private city bus companies are to prevail at an uncontrollable rate, then TNVS should too.

Also, the boom of private cars is attributed for tge country being too dependent on United States where cars are more convenient than public transport. It might be a left-wing rhetoric but for me, that's the truth.

Grab seriously needs to address this.
