Villanueva to LTFRB: Do not resort to ‘childish tactics’ against motorcycle taxis
Let bygones be bygones.
Senator Joel Villanueva made the remark on Tuesday after the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) backpedaled on its decision to terminate the pilot testing for motorcycle taxis.
Antonio Gardiola Jr., TWG head, on Monday said he had cancelled the pilot run for motorcycle taxis due to some “legal impediments.” But a day later, he had a change of heart.
“Let the study rise and fall on its merits, not on childish tactics. And the TWG must buckle down to work,” Villanueva said.
“Ito po ang sinasabi natin sa pagdinig kahapon tungkol sa motorcycle taxis. Huwag po tayo magpadalos-dalos ating mga desisyon, lalo na kung makakaapekto ito sa maraming tao,” he said.
Villanueva added, “We’re glad that the technical working group studying the viability of motorcycle taxis as public transports has come to its senses.”
” Their mandate comes from the LTFRB, and their purpose is to help create a regulatory framework,” he said.
