MANILA, Philippines — Motorcycle taxi firms Angkas and Joyride received on Monday their certificates of compliance, allowing them to operate beyond Dec. 9.

In a statement, the Motorcycle Taxi Technical Working Group (TWG), which is tasked to oversee the pilot run of motorcycle taxis, said the two firms were “fully compliant” with the guidelines set by the TWG and the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Diseases set under the pilot study.

Such requirements are “the provision of insurance for both rider and passenger in case of an accident and the mandatory use of thermal scanners to accurately detect if the passenger has fever (for discussion with NTF).”
