MANILA, Philippines — A group of transport network vehicle  (TNVS) drivers and operators is urging the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) to decide on the implementation of a moratorium on the apprehension of TNVS drivers with incomplete registrations.

The Laban TNVS staged a transport caravan protest on Friday from the People’s Power Monument going to the LTFRB main office and the House of Representatives, sounding their horns simultaneously in protest.

“We are keeping keen eyes and ears to every move of the LTFRB concerning our issues. We hope LTFRB chair Delgra and the rest of the Board officials will keep their word and will consider the best interests of TNVS operators and drivers in coming up with a decision,” Laban TNVS spokesperson Jun de Leon said.

TNVS drivers and operators are protesting the “inconsistent and problematic” LTFRB policies in terms of TNVS registration and application.
