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.
Both firms can now continue operations even after Dec. 9, which is the last day of the validity of their provisional authority to operate, and for the duration of the pilot run.
