Grab deactivates 15,000 drivers for lack of documents

Grab deactivates 15,000 drivers for lack of documents

Ridesharing company Grab Philippines has deactivated around 15,000 drivers of transportation network vehicle services  units that do not have provisional authorities from the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board since January this year.

Grab Philippines president Brian Cu said the company was able to determine which drivers did not have PAs by cross-referencing its database with the list provided by the LTFRB last May.

“We were able to deactivate now on a larger scale because we received the list from the LTFRB,” Cu said during a hearing at the LTFRB office on Tuesday.

Cu said Grab deactivated 10,000 TNVS drivers who did not have documentation, such as certificates of public convenience (CPCs) or PAs from January to May. The ridesharing firm deactivated 500 drivers on a weekly basis during that period.

He said 3,000 TNVS drivers were saved from deactivation last Monday because they were able to submit proof of PAs and CPCs to the LTFRB.

Earlier, Grab announced that 8,000 drivers were set for deactivation on June 10 because they did not have PAs from the LTFRB.

Grab said they deactivated the drivers in compliance with the June 7 deadline set by the LTFRB for the application of 20,000 TNVS units, which was opened last December.

The company also assured its riders that it would strive to maintain the 2x surge price amid the reduction in supply of TNVS units.

“Our team will closely monitor that should prices go up, we will adjust fares downwards as we still have commitments to the Philippine Competition Commission,” Cu said.

Cu said he expected that the inconvenience would be temporary as new drivers were expected to apply for the 10,000 slots for TNVS units opened by the LTFRB last Monday.

The company vowed to provide assistance in the filing of applications for TNVS units through its TNVS Assistance Program at Matrix Creation Events Venue in 11 Malakas Street, Diliman, Quezon City which will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 10 to 13 and from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 14.
