Make sure TNVS units active online, TNCs told

Make sure TNVS units active online, TNCs told

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board on Friday urged transportation network companies to exert efforts to ensure that all transportation network vehicle services units on their platform were actively online to address passenger demand.

LTFRB chairperson Martin Delgra III said most TNVS drivers on the system of TNCs were not online on a full-time basis, resulting in the lack of supply for its riders.

“Whatever the numbers are on their system right now that goes to all accredited TNCs most of them are not online. Lower number of those are online anytime. It is up to the TNCs to get the majority of those who are not online to go online to serve demand. That is the solution,” Delgra said.

“What is clear is not all of them accredited to any TNCs are full-time. If all TNVS units on their system are online, there will be no issue on the lack of supply,” he added.

The LTFRB is also opening 10,000 slots for new applications of TNVS units starting June 10 after it opened 20,000 slots in December until June 7.

“After getting provisional authority (PA) or certificates of public convenience (CPC), TNVS applicants would then apply for accreditation with any of the active accredited TNCs. Once accredited and active online, they can start to accept bookings. TNVS may be accredited with more than one TNC,” Delgra said.

The LTFRB has accredited eight TNCs: Ipara Technologies and Solutions Inc., Hirna Mobility Solutions Inc, Hype Transport Systems, Inc, Micab Systems Corp., E-Pick Me Up Inc, GoLag Aztech Solution, and RYD Global.

The accreditation of Grab Philippines, which has the biggest share of TNVS units, has not yet been renewed.

The LTFRB said there were 40,522 TNVS units with PAs or CPCs as of May 29.
