/ 05:12 AM June 13, 2019

MANILA, Philippines — Amid clamors to extend the June 7 deadline for franchise applications, or open more slots for transport network vehicle services (TNVS) units, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) maintained that they had already given a reasonable  period for drivers to comply with requirements.

The agencies issued a statement amid Grab’s suggestion that they temporarily allow some 5,600 deactivated drivers back on the road.
