The Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board has opened 4,000 slots for transport network vehicle service (TNVS), a move that is seen to result in cheaper fares and faster booking.
Grab Philippines country head Grace Vera Cruz the LTRFB’s decision to increase the total of TNVS drivers to 11,000 was a step in the right direction as passengers had complained of having a hard time booking a Grab.
“With the support of all our stakeholders, we will strive to provide all of you with a much better mobility experience through our app and platform,” she said.
“Our teams are working tirelessly to help address our current transport situation, but we cannot do this alone,” Vera Cruz said, who explained that their partners in government “play a vital role in our ability to onboard more drivers making safe, reliable, and more accessible means of transportation possible for you and many Filipinos,” Vera Cruz added.
She said the ride-hailing app would continue to increase its “positive socioeconomic impact” by reaching out to more consumers and by providing more livelihood opportunities in key areas outside of Greater Metro Manila.
