Transport group wants Grab accreditation canceled
A transport group has filed a petition which seeks to cancel the accreditation of ride sharing application My Taxi.PH or Grab Philippines.
In a hearing, LTFRB Chair Martin Delgra III disclosed that public utility vehicle drivers’ party-list 1-Utak, represented by its president Vigor Mendoza, filed the petition Tuesday morning.
The discussion of the petition was deferred by Delgra. He then directed Grab to reply to the petition within 15 days.
Mendoza said the allegations of Puwersa ng Bayaning Atleta (PBA) part-list Rep. Jericho Nograles against Grab was among the grounds they cited in their complaint.
Nograles earlier bared that Grab owes its customers some P1.8 billion for charging the P2 per minute in the past five months alone. The charge was on top of Grab’s P40 flag down rate and on top of the P10 to P14 per kilometer charge.
The same group filed a petition against the operations of the Transport Network Companies (TNCs) Uber and Grab and the issuance of franchise to their partner Transport Network Vehicle Services (TNVS).
But the LTFRB has dismissed all motions filed by the transport group in February 2016. /je
