MANILA, Philippines – The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) said on Saturday that it did not terminate the motorcycle (MC) taxi program.

In its statement, LTFRB Chairperson Teofilo Guadiz III said that its technical working group (TWG) only terminated the data gathering for the MC taxi program.

“The TWG did not endorse the termination of the program. What it terminated is the gathering of data and the program continues,” Guadiz said.

“The study was stretched to more players and outside the borders of Metro Manila,” he said.

The pilot study, which was approved by the Congress in 2019, is set to end on May 31.
