TNVS franchise application now online – LTFRB
MANILA, Philippines – Transport network vehicle service (TNVS) drivers and operators may now schedule their appointments for existing franchise transactions online.
In a statement on Wednesday, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) said it has launched an online system to assist existing TNVS franchise holders in the processing of documents.
Online scheduling will cover stamping of provisional authorities, verification of status of certificate of public convenience, dismissal, motion for reconsideration, manifestation, reset hearing, and compliance order.
TNVS franchise applicants with existing franchise applications may simply log on to http://ltfrb.ph.net/tnvs/appt/, the agency said.
LTFRB Chairman Martin Delgra said the online system is aimed at making applications easier, more convenient and accessible.
“We want to help make things easier for drivers/operators. We recognize their initiative to be part of our basket of solutions to improve transportation through ride-sharing,” he said in a statement.
“This will serve as our online systems template for all modes of public transport in the future,” Delgra added.
The move is in compliance with Republic Act No. 11032 or the Ease of Doing Business Act as well as the Department of Transportation’s (DOTr) directive for speedy processing of TNVS franchises, LTFRB said.
Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said he hopes the LTFRB will be able to sustain and improve the program.
“This is a welcome development. It is my hope that the LTFRB will be able to sustain and improve this program, and later on come up with more innovations such as this to streamline business processes and curb corruption,” Tugade said in the same statement. /gsg
