LTFRB to review 45,000 TNVS limit


The Department of Transportation and the Land Transportation Franchising Board will start monitoring the number of booking requests received by Transport Network Vehicles.

This will include served and unserved requests, as well as other factors affecting the supply of TNVS such as number coding, maintenance schedules, and working hours of drivers.

The objective of the review is to judiciously arrive at an objective number for the common supply base, which will likewise be based on the official list of accredited TNVS as submitted by TNCs, such as Grab, Uber and U-Hop, to LTFRB.

“We assure you that should there be adjustments in the common supply base as a result of the review, the decision would be based on actual data from the different transport network companies (TNCs), thorough DOTr study, and consultations with the public at large,” DOTr said.

“Rest assured that while the DOTr and LTFRB continue to set fair standards, we shall, in the best way we can, exhaust all measures to meet the needs of the public in a platform of transparency, accountability, and good governance,” it added.

The review was due to the uproar raised by netizens over a memorandum circular issued by the LTFRB, which limits the number of TNVS to only 45,700 in Metro Manila, Metro Cebu and Pampanga.
