The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) on Monday opened 20,000 slots for vehicle units to be accredited as transportation network vehicle services (TNVS).
In an advisory, the LTFRB said the online registration will be held from Dec. 17, 2018 until Jan. 3, 2019.
The Board decided to open the online application as there was a low turnout of application for certificate of public convenience (CPC) of TNVS units.
“Paalala sa mga nais magpa-accredit, siguraduhing kumpleto ang inyong requirements upang tuluy-tuloy ang pag-proseso ng application (We remind the applicants to ensure that they submit the complete requirements for easier processing of their applications),” the Board advisory read.
Transportation network companies (TNCs) were earlier directed to file their master list of accredited TNVS units until December 15 for the application of their CPCs.
The master list serves as basis to allow the TNCs to operate pending the filing of their applications.
Applicants may visit the link: http://ltfrb.ph.net/tnvs/ for their TNVS applications.
Appointment or acceptance of applications will start on Jan. 3, 2019.
Latest data from the LTFRB show a total of 35,000 TNVS units have CPCs and provisional authority.
The current supply base for TNVS units currently stands at 66,750 units in Metro Manila, Metro Cebu, and Pampanga.
