MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) approved on Wednesday, April 18, the accreditation of two ride-hailing companies.
LTFRB Chairman Martin Delgra III and Board Members Aileen Lizada and Ronaldo Corpus signed Accreditation Numbers 2018-TNC-001 and 2018-TNC-002, allowing Hype Transport Systems Incorporated and Hirna Mobility Solutions to operate for two years.
Lizada said the ride-hailing companies can begin operations once they receive their accreditation papers, giving commuters other options for ride-hailing services aside from Grab Philippines.
Hirna is a ride-hailing app for taxis currently available in Davao, but is looking at expanding across the country.
The other companies waiting for approval are Owto, Go Lag, and MiCab. – Rappler.com
