I am happy that the riding public would somehow be able to regain its power in deciding what mode of public transportation to take after Uber paid the hefty and mind-boggling fine that the LTFRB imposed against the company.
For the sake of the commuters, I am committed to complete as soon as possible the report on the TNVS bill that is currently undergoing TWG meetings. The TWG meetings aim to thresh out and address all related issues concerning the operation of Uber, Grab and the like.
This way, we may avoid the recurrence of a similar suspension affecting the TNVS community, which is rooted on the apparent inability of the LTFRB to adjust and adapt to new technology. Based on what happened, it seems that it flexes its discretion as a whimsical regulator just for the sake of imposing regulations.
