LTFRB Starts Online Application for TNVS Franchise
The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has made the franchise application for Transport Network Vehicle Services (TNVS) easier through an online appointment scheduling for franchise applicants.
The move is in compliance with Republic Act No. 11032, also known as the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018.
The online franchise appointment system is also in line with the directive of Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur P. Tugade to the LTFRB for the speedy processing of TNVS franchises.
"This is a welcome development. It is my hope that the LTFRB will be able to sustain and improve this program, and later on come up with more innovations such as this to streamline business processes and curb corruption," said Tugade.
LTFRB Chairman Martin Delgra III said the project is also a manifestation of the agency's continuous efforts to provide a better service to its most important stakeholders - drivers, operators, and the commuting public.

Delgra said the online system will make TNVS franchise applications easier, more convenient, and accessible for everyone.
"We will not stop until every TNVS operator and driver has their sustainable livelihood, and every commuter is safe and comfortable," Delgra said.
The online appointment scheduling for TNVS franchise applicants is part of new steps being implemented by the LTFRB to address the influx of applications.
The LTFRB has assured that it is committed to its mandate to regulate land-based public transportation, and to safeguard the welfare and interests of the commuting public, at all times.
