LTFRB allows Uber drivers to join Grab, UHOP for the meantime


The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board has allowed Uber’s accredited drivers to transfer to either Grab or UHOP during the period of suspension, citing exigency of public service and the convenience of the riding public.

Uber was suspended by the LTFRB for a period of one month for defying the agency’s directive to stop accepting applications.

“The board resolves to allow Uber’s transportation network vehicle service (TNVS) during the period of suspension, taking into consideration those who were accredited by Uber Systems Inc. to be accommodated by either of the two accredited TNCs namely My Taxi Inc and UHOP,” LTFRB said in a board resolution dated August 17.

LTFRB said Uber’s TNVS should get proof of accreditation from the suspended ride hailing app and proof of insurance coverage to be able to switch.

As of July, there were 30,000 active Uber drivers, nearly half of last year’s 66,000.
