Uber PH voices dissent on surge cap, urges drivers to petition gov’t


Although it has agreed to reduce its surge pricing as requested by the government, ride-sharing app operator Uber Philippines has asked its partner drivers to write the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) to make known of their opposition to the price cap.

With the pending approval of HB 4669, I don’t think LTFRB will change their minds on the price cap for transport network service providers (TNS) like Uber and Grab.
