MILLENNIAL SOLON WEIGHS IN ON GRAB, UBER, TNCs DEBACLE
 
Grab, Uber drivers have families too. – Rep. Abayon
 
I, as Member of the House Committee on Transportation, strongly urge the LTFRB and LTO to adopt special measures to ensure the availability of Transportation Network Company (TNC) units. The fine imposed is justified and has been accepted. It is now time for more measures that will benefit the riding public.
 
The riding public clearly prefer the private vehicle TNCs over the less-maintained regular taxis because they are cleaner. TNC drivers are generally more courteous to their passengers and passengers feel safer while in the TNC units because regular taxis often fall victim to robbers. I urge the TNCs to adopt security measures to protect themselves and their passengers from robbers, as well as protocols for medical emergencies involving either the driver or passengers.
 
The regular taxis are on the losing end of their competition with the TNCs because the riding public feel the service they provide is poor and unsatisfactory.
 
Commuters want value for their money. Our country has a market demand-driven economy. The regular taxi fleets must shape up or they will become as obsolete as pagers were decades ago when mobile phones entered the consumer market. It is time for the regular taxi fleets to move on from denial and accept the fact that they have not served the riding public as well as they should have.
 
TNC service has become a source of additional or even major income for many middle income Filipino families not just in Metro Manila but in other major urban cities where they have been allowed to operate. The TNC drivers have their families to support and also have bills and expenses. They send their children and other dependents to school.
 
Harsh treatment of TNCs and their drivers will do more harm than good and will not ease the financial hardships of the families that have now come to depend on TNC income to sustain their everyday lives and gather savings for medical expenses and other major expenses.
 
I recommend to both the LTFRB and LTO to please assign document processing lanes specifically for TNCs. Barcode each TNC member filing so it would be easier to track the progress of each set of documents. Commit to a processing time for filings that are complete and in order.
Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
