SC HALT ORDER ON ANGKAS WORRIES RIDERS’ ‘SOURCE OF INCOME’



Angkas which earlier expressed disappointment on the matter, has stated the TRO puts the livelihood of 25,000 biker-partners at risk.

Some of the riders admitted they depend on the ride-hailing service as their main source of income, and stressed that their main priority is the safety of the passengers.

The SC ruling will bring inconvenience to the commuting public and result to job losses, as per Angkas drivers and passengers.

That’s why they are calling on the government to allow motorcycles to hit the streets again.

For now, the Philippine National Police – Highway Patrol Group said it will wait the official request from the LTFRB to apprehend the said drivers and operators.
