LTFRB sets franchise filing fees for TNVS operators
MANILA, Philippines — Transport network vehicle service (TNVS) operators who want three vehicles to be included in the franchise master list of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) will have to pay less than P1,000.
Once included in the LTFRB’s franchise master list, vehicles are allowed to operate as TNVS vehicles, LTFRB Executive Director Samuel Jardin on Tuesday said.
The LTFRB earlier announced that it has opened 20,000 new slots for TNVS franchise applications.
According to Jardin, the filing fee for the first two units will cost operators P510 and P10 for legal research fee. The application fee for succeeding units is at P400, the LTFRB said.
Jardin also advised operators to file their applications in order not to get apprehended by traffic enforcers for operating a “colorum” vehicle.
“Kapag hindi sila nag avail, siyempre walang prangkisa, huhuliin yan then iimpound naman yan dahil kapag walang prangkisa, colorum,” he said in an interview with dzMM.
Jardin said applications would be open as long as there are vacancies in the slots.
On Monday, the LTFRB announced that it had opened thousands of slots for TNVS applications following a “low turn-out” during the previous online accreditation. /muf
