MANILA, Philippines — Ngayong araw ang deadline para sa lahat ng mga mag-aapply ng provisional authority sa Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board o LTFRB.

Simula sa Lunes ay hindi na magbibigay ng pa ang LFTRB, ibig sabihin lahat ng mga out of line at colorum na “for hire” trucks ay hindi na papayagang maka-pasada sa mga lansangan sa bansa.

Batay sa napagkasuduan ng Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), LTFRB at mga LGU’s, tuloy ang panghuhuli sa lahat ng mga “for hire” trucks na hindi makakakuha ng provisional authority.

Dalawang daang libo ang multa sa lahat ng mga “for hire” truck na mahuhuling walang prangkisa at provisional authority.

Hanggang kaninang hapon, marami pa rin ang naghahabol sa tanggapan ng LTFRB upang makakuha ng provisional authority.

“Sana po bigyan pa kami ng extension kasi sabi ngayon deadline ng application. Sana bigyan kami ng 120 days,” ani Grace Bangalan na isang truck operator.

“Yung hindi aabot ay wala na po maibibigay sa kanila pero pwede pa naman sila mag-apply ng franchise ng trucks for hire pero hindi na kami magbibigay ng provisional authority starting matatanggap namin sa Monday,” saad ni LTFRB Chairman Atty. Winston Ginez.

Subalit nangangamba pa rin ang ilan na baka kahit makakuha sila ng provisional authority ay hulihin sila lalo na sa lungsod ng Maynila.

Nilinaw ni Chairman Ginez na kapag nakakuha sila ng provisional authority ay kikilalanin ito ng lahat ng mga LGU at ng MMDA batay na rin sa napagkasuduan.

Kailangan lamang ipakita ang kopya ng provisional authority sa humuhuling traffic law enforcer upang makaiwas sa multa.

“Dapat ay wala na silang pangamba dahil na-recognize na yan sa aming pakikipagusap sa Metro Manila mayors at MMDA na gagalangin nila ang provisional authority na ibinigay natin hanggang October 17.”

Nagpaalala ang LTFRB na walang kailangang bayarang malaki sa pagkuha ng provisional authority,kailangan lamang nilang maghanda ng 520 pesos at dagdag na 70 pesos sa bawat isang unit.

Nilinaw naman ng LTFRB na ang lahat ng mga provisional authority ay epektibo lamang hanggang October 17, matapos nito dapat lahat ng mga nag-apply ay magkaroon na ng yellow plates.

Samantala, ire-refund ng LTFRB ang 250 pesos na naibayad ng mga nag-apply ng franchise exemption matapos itong kanselahin ng LTFRB. Maaari lamang makipag-ugnayan sa kanilang tanggapan upang makuha ang refund. (Mon Jocson, UNTV News)

Authorities caught motorcycle riders in Cagayan de Oro operating under Angkas

Aileen Cerrudo   •   January 7, 2020

Authorities have caught several motorcycle riders operating as taxi service under the ride-hailing app Angkas in Cagayan De Oro City which is outside of the designated Motorcycle Taxi Service Pilot Implementation Study area.

After receiving several complaints, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) Region 10 office conducted the operation against several units of Angkas. The motorcycles were immediately impounded.

In a Facebook post of the Department of Transportation (DOTr), the riders were “reported to have been violating the terms of the MC Taxi Pilot Study guidelines adopted by the Technical Working Group (TWG).”

“Under current transport laws, Motorcycles are strictly prohibited from being utilized as public transportation. The exception now is the ongoing MC Pilot Study program being implemented by the TWG in Metro Manila and Metro Cebu only,” the post reads

Under the law, riders who are operating colorum motorcycles will be fined P6,000.

The pilot test run is still on-going and is expected to be done by March 23, 2020.

Meanwhile, the Quezon City Regional Trial Court was not in favor with the request of the Lawyers for Commuters Safety to suspend operations of other motorcycle taxis.

Based on the court’s decision, the group presented insufficient evidence for the court to provide a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) against other motorcycle taxis for hire.—AAC (with reports from Joan Nano)

MANILA, Philippines — Several transport groups will be filing a petition for a minimum fare of Php11 on public utility jeepneys (PUJ).

Pasang Masda president, Obet Martin, said they will file their fare hike petition to the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) in January alongside the implementation of the third tranche of the excise tax on petroleum products.

Martin said the Php2 increase on the current minimum fare of Php9 is to help jeepney drivers and operators recover from the additional tax on oil products that will be imposed on them.

“Sa akin ay talagang kontrang kontra ang aking damdamin sa pagtataas subalit wala po akong magagawa sapagka’t ang presyo po ng aming ginagamit na panggatong o itong diesel eh tumaas na naman po,” Martin said.

The price hike on petroleum products will take effect on January 1, 2020, in accordance with Republic Act 10963 or the Tax Reform Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law.

The fare increase that the group is seeking will further rise to Php12 in case crude prices also further increase.

Pasang Masda, along with other transport groups, will soon be convening to discuss the petition that they will file in January. — (from the report of Asher Cadapan, Jr.) /mbmf
