Senator calls for review of transport policies

SEN. Juan Edgardo Angara has filed a resolution calling for an assessment of the country’s mass transport system to make sure that these policies ultimately benefit the riding public.

A closer look into the state of public transportationshould be conducted to ensure that it is efficient, dependable, safe and affordable, said Angara.

With the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board ordering Grab and Uber to deactivate their more than 50,000 so-called colorum drivers, Filipino commuters rallied support for ride-sharing applications, saying these offer better service, safety, convenience, and courtesy than other transportation services.

A mediation hearing called by Senate committee on public services chaired by Sen. Grace Poe forged an interim measure that would allow Grab and Uber’s cars to operate pending a final compromise solution. (SunStar Philippines)
