MANILA, Philippines – The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) will decide within the week if it will continue to apprehend transport network vehicles service (TNVS) drivers with incomplete registrations, chairman Martin Delgra said Tuesday.

During the public hearing at LTFRB’s central office in Quezon City on Tuesday, TNVS legal counsel Ariel Inton pressed Delgra to answer the request of drivers and operators for a moratorium on the apprehensions.

“Within the week,” the LTFRB chair said.

Delgra earlier indicated that it would cause problems if the agency allows TNVS to operate while it also sustains an ‘anti-colorum’ drive. However, Delgra finally agreed to resolve the issue within the week.

“We’ll take it up with the board,” he added.

However, Delgra said there would still be apprehensions within the week while the decision is pending.

Recently, TNVS groups and lawmakers have asked LTFRB to ease its rules, in consideration of the difficulties the drivers experience in the franchise application. (Editor: Eden Estopace)
