In a statement, the TNVS Alliance of the Philippines said “the new slots will present new livelihood opportunities for fellow Filipinos who are looking for new income streams in the post-pandemic era.”
“We look forward to welcoming these new TNVS drivers to our community as we provide safe and convenient transport service that every Filipino deserves,” the group said.
