LTFRB questions Uber's business etiquette after it resumed operations

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) on Tuesday questioned the "business etiquette" of Uber Systems, Inc. after it resumed its operations despite its suspension.

"I am now questioning the business etiquette of Uber. You are now putting all your TNVS [transport network vehicle service] at risk. Ano ho kayong klaseng partner operator?" LTFRB board member Atty. Aileen Lizada said in a press conference.

"All your 68,000 [TNVS] will be on the road. What is your statement there? What are you trying to prove? We are suspending your accreditation for one month and now you are telling your TNVS to go on the road," Lizada added.

"Where is your business etiquette Uber? If you are truly a partner operator why are you doing this to your TNVS? Sila ang mahuhuli. Hindi kayo, sila," Lizada continued.

Uber will remain suspended despite its pending motion for reconsideration.

LTFRB chairman Martin Delgra III said that the one-month suspension order stands as they have to convene the board on whether they will grant or deny the motion.

The LTFRB suspended Uber for a month after it defied an order halting the activation of new drivers.

Uber temporarily suspended its operations on Tuesday but went back online right after it filed its motion for reconsideration at the LTFRB office at 10:25 a.m. —KG, GMA News
