Pilot test run for motorcycle taxis ends early

Ahead of the Senate hearing on the regulation of motorcycle taxis, the technical working group overseeing their pilot run recommended the termination of the study—two months before its scheduled cessation.

According to Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) board member Antonio Gardiola Jr., the recommendation to end the motorcycle taxi pilot run was due to legal impediments that prevented their team from efficiently gathering data.

“We are resorting to legal rigmarole sa nangyayaring ito. Bale, nag-file sila ng kaso na na-i-impede ang study,” Gardiola explains. “We cannot gather data because of actions being undertaken on one of the players so it is better to terminate it.”

Following the termination of the study, the motorcycle taxi services participating in the study are deemed illegal and will be impounded beginning next week. As of writing, Gardiola did not specify when exactly this will be enforced.

According to netizens, Angkas saves commuters from being late to meetings, appointments, and classes. The riders are also known to be friendly and accommodating to passengers. Its social media posts have also gained a reputation for being funny, meme-able, and true to the commuting experience.
