On May 27, 2018, 8,000 Motorcycle Drivers participated in a Unity Ride to show support for the regulation of Motorcycle-Taxis.
On June 6, a congressional hearing was conducted by the committee on Metro Manila Development chaired by Hon. Winston "Winnie" T. Castelo.
At the hearing, the committee agreed on the benefits of regulating Motorcycle-Taxis as a cheaper and more efficient alternative public transportation option to the masses and a solution to help ease traffic congestion. It is also a source of income to thousands of Filipinos.
The committee also agreed that NOT REGULATING the current Habal-Habal drivers poses a far GREATER DANGER and called for an immediate regulation for MOTORCYCLE-TAXIS.
The committee instructed DOTr to include Motorcycle-Taxis as part of the TNVS regulation of LTFRB citing that the same law applies to all ride-hailing apps like Grab for 4-wheels and Angkas for 2-wheels. The committee gave DOTr 30 days to make this happen.
30 days ends on June 6, 2018.
We hope you support this petition so that many of our less fortunate commuting public will have a better quality of life by spending less time in traffic as well as giving jobs to millions of Filipinos across the country.
