Angkas, Joy Ride, and Move It, are the only motorcycle ride-hailing apps that are officially participating in the pilot study for motorcycle taxis conducted by the Department of Transportation.
The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will start apprehending motorcycles that are not included in the master list of the pilot study on motorcycle taxis.
There are only three motorcycle ride-hailing apps that are included in the pilot study. These are Angkas, Joy Ride, and Move It.
“Other ride-hailing apps like Sampa, Kandong, etc. are not permitted to operate and therefore are all illegal. We will also be on the lookout against “habal-habal" riders and terminals,” said MMDA General Manager Jojo Garcia.
Moreover, in a press release, Garcia encouraged the public to report the location of “habal-habal” location through MMDA’s social media accounts.
Meanwhile, a CNN report revealed that traffic authorities are urging lawmakers to also prohibit motorcycle taxis from traversing major roads.
“Mas maiiwasan ang aksidente kung nasa inner roads lang sila," explained Garcia.
