LTFRB Nabs Angkas Riders in CDO
Drivers from motorcycle taxi service app Angkas were apprehended in Cagayan de Oro City.
The government move was made for operating as Taxi Service outside of the designated Motorcycle Taxi Service Pilot Implementation Study area.
In a Facebook post last Friday, the Department of Transportation (DoTr), showed that assigned from the apprehension, the motorcycle units used were also impounded.
According to the social media posting, the action was done following several complaints that the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board - Region 10 office in Cagayan de Oro.
The transportation department cited that under current transport laws, motorcycles are strictly prohibited from being utilized as public transportation.
"The exception now is the ongoing MC Pilot Study program being implemented by the TWG in Metro Manila and Metro Cebu only, which is being run to help Congress formulate a new law which would enable MCs to be considered as a new public transportation mode," they stated in their Facebook page.
