LTFRB Says Uber, Grab’s Accreditation Papers Missing

*facepalm*

While both Uber and Grab narrowly avoided catastrophe no thanks in part to the intervention of Senator JV Ejercito, both companies are now facing yet another roadblock to compliance with the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB). According to the LTFRB, they’ve lost the accreditation papers of both Uber and Grab, which is horrifying considering that both ride-sharing companies are renewing their permits to operate.

“Pagpasok po namin diyan sa opisina namin, for the record, nawala po ang accreditation papers ng Uber and Grab,” Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board spokesperson Aileen Lizada told DZMM.

“We want to know nasaan ang accreditation papers nila kasi doon namin makikita nasaan ang business design nila, what did they submit, ano ba talaga ang kanilang proposal, how they will go about their business. Hindi po namin makita ang papeles na iyun,” she added.

The loss of the papers come at the heels of LTFRB’s controversial order to start apprehending colorum Grab and Uber drivers who have not received their Provisional Authority to operate since the agency halted processing of said permits last year.

Grab’s accreditation expired this month, on July 3, while Uber’s is set to expire on August.

The accreditation papers, Lizada said, were supposed to be in the safekeeping of a former LTFRB executive director but his staff said they were not holding the documents.

  1. Hindi na tinigilan ng LTFRB ang Grab at Uber. Payment may not be the issue here. The issue is, accreditaqtion papers are missing. If these papers are really missing, its THEIR FAULT AND RESPONSIBILITY to produce these papers submitted to them.DON’T PASS the blame to Uber and Grab. Kumilos naman kayo para mahanap ang mga paers na yan. Now, if they had submitted their papers, I’m sure they have receive copies in which they can give an authenticated photocopy of it. Sampal yan sa LTFRB.

    Napaka simple ng problema, pinapalaki lang ng LTFRB. Galing makahanap ng dahilan para sirain ang credibility ng TVNS companies. Anong klaseng mga PUBLIC SERVANT ang nakaupo sa LTFRB? Take note sa mga leaders ng LTFRB (including you, Ms. Lizada), you are there TO SERVE THE PUBLIC and NOT GIVE MORE PROBLEMS TO PUBLIC.

    And if indeed Grab and Uber had not paid their own dues, its time you guys to pay the fees. Wag nyo ng bigyan ng reasons ang LTFRB magalit sa inyo.
