Uber back online after filing appeal on LTFRB's suspension order

Uber Systems Inc. on Tuesday went back online after filing a motion for reconsideration on the suspension ordered by the Land Transportation and Franchising Board (LTFRB).

"In response to overwhelming rider and driver demand, we have filed a motion for reconsideration with the LTFRB. This means that Uber's operations will continue until the motion is resolved. Consequently, we will be resuming serving Metro Manila and Cebu." it said in a statement sent via text message.

Uber suspended its operations 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday following the one-month suspension order of the LTFRB.

Uber then filed for a motion for reconsideration, which was received by the LTFRB at 10:25 a.m.

"Over the course of this morning, tens of thousands of riders were left stranded, causing needless inconvenience, while drivers were unable to access the earning opportunities they rely on," Uber said.

"We are looking forward to urgently resolving the matter with LTFRB in the interest of everyone who depends on Uber every day," it added. —Jon Viktor D. Cabuenas/ALG/KVD, GMA News
