MANILA – More than a hundred ride-sharing service drivers gathered in Quezon City on Sunday and held a barrage in a column and noise to demand the restoration of the P2 per minute that the regulators had suspended in April.
Van Sgt. Esguerra St. drove to the office of the Land Transport Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) on East Avenue and squeaked repeatedly with their horns.
The drivers, many of whom worked for the Grab transport company, said that the suspension of the P2 per minute was unreasonable because of rising fuel costs.
They said their income dropped by 40 percent after the LTFRB had suspended the P2 per minute.
