Antonio Gardiola Jr., a member of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) and the chair of the multi-agency technical working group (TWG) announced the termination of the study. He also stated that the TWG’s report has been submitted to Congress. According to a report by ABS-CBN News, Gardiola also mentioned that the motorcycle-taxis could be considered illegal as “they are drawing their authority to run motorcycles because of the study.

Due to the termination of the study, Gardiola stated that motorcycle-taxis running the roads can be apprehended beginning next week.

Last December 2019, the TWG approved an extension of the motorcycle-taxi pilot study, scheduled to run from January to March 23, 2020. The termination of the study renders the extension invalid.

Stay tuned for more developments.
