LTFRB expands motorcycle taxi pilot program with four new players

The new players adds 8,000 riders to the existing pool in Regions III and IV.

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) is revving up the motorcycle taxi industry. The agency recently accredited four new Transport Network Companies (TNCs) in a bid to expand the ongoing program.

The new players bring a significant boost to the program, adding 8,000 riders to the existing pool in Regions III and IV. The LTFRB previously allowed three companies – Angkas, JoyRide, and MoveIt – to operate motorcycle taxis for a six-month pilot period starting June 2019.

LTFRB Chair Teofilo Guadiz III emphasized the agency’s commitment to a thorough evaluation of the program. By incorporating these new TNCs and riders, the LTFRB aims for a more comprehensive assessment. This expansion allows them to gather data from a wider range of participants and operating environments.

The five-year motorcycle taxi pilot program remains ongoing. The addition of these new players signifies the LTFRB’s recognition of the industry’s potential and its commitment to ensuring a well-rounded evaluation before making permanent decisions.
