Safety first: Grab calls for common database of blacklisted passengers

 

Grab Philippines has appealed to other ride-hailing apps Uber and U-hop to band together and share a common database of blacklisted passengers to ensure the safety of both their drivers and passengers.

Grab country head Brian Cu said it is high time that Transport Network Companies (TNCs) unite and “use technology to promote the safety and welfare of drivers, as well as of the passengers.”

Cu said TNCs should be protected against passengers harassing their drivers either verbally or physically, non-payment of passengers, and incidents of damaging property.

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) reacted positively to Grab’s proposal. It held a meeting with stakeholders on safety and security after the carjacking incident that claimed the life of Grab driver Gererdo Maquidato Jr.
