LTFRB to start apprehending Uber vehicles starting August 20

Say bye-bye to convenience?

 

(SPOT.ph) The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) is not feeling the love for Uber. Starting August 20, they will start "cracking down" on unregistered car-booking services. Companies like Uber will be tagged as "colorum" until they submit the proper documents for accreditation. LTFRB executive director Robert Cabrera said that they are already planning "sting operations" to apprehend Uber operators. An earlier version of the plan had failed, as the credit cards used to nab drivers were blocked from the service. 

 

In an interview with dzMM, LTFRB public information officer Mary Anne Salada said that they want to ensure passenger safety, claiming that they currently do not have access to the database of Uber drivers. Meanwhile, GrabCar is free to use, as it is officially accredited by the LTFRB. Uber released a statement on following ride-sharing regulations on May 10.
