We urge our Transport Network Vehicle Service (TNVS) partners to show utmost restraint before taking actions that could negatively impact the ability of passengers to book rides.
We received reports that several TNVS groups have decided to call for a TNVS Drivers Transport Holiday this July 8 (Monday) from 6 AM – 6 PM. According to reports, the TNVS Transport Holiday serves as a form of protest against the LTFRB’s procedural processes and the recent reported apprehensions of some TNVS drivers.
We recognize the TNVS partners’ right to free speech and peaceable assembly. In many ways, we also support the call for smoother processes and faster timelines.
We encourage our TNVS partners to work with us, with passengers, and with our regulators to address TNVS pain points through dialogue.
Let us take the high road and to not resort to any rash actions that would directly affect the passengers we are all committed to serve.
