Court issues TRO against Uber and GrabCar in PH


The Quezon City Regional Trial Court has issued a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) against the operations of Uber and GrabCar in the Philippines.

The 20-day TRO was issued by the Quezon City RTC Branch 217 in accordance to the petition filed by transport coalition STOP & GO, Inc. against the orders of the DOTC and LTFRB that allows transportation network vehicle service (TNVS) to operate in the country.

UPDATE: The TRO on Uber and GrabCar only covers new applicants for the next 20 days. The current fleet will operate as normal.


“Napakalaking epekto nito sa hanapbuhay ng mga miyembro namin na taxi driver at UV Express. Itong Uber at Grab, wala naman itong franchise,” Stop & Go Coalition president Jun Magno told dzMM.

Magno also told GMA News that Uber and Grab is wrong because not having a franchise is against the law, and they are charging passengers without following the tariff issued by the LTFRB.
