Grab To Deactivate 8,000 Drivers By June 10
Grab users will be having a tougher time booking a ride come June 10. In line with their compliance with the requirements set by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, Grab will be shutting down drivers who have yet to provide proof of their provisional authority to operate.
Grab has acted in good faith, keeping their partners on board without the said requirement. They have given enough time for their partners to comply within the time frame they and the LTFRB have agreed. The regulatory board in December opened 20,000 slots for TNVS units and the application for it which will close on Friday, June 7.
Brian Cu, the President of Grab Philippines, admitted that it will be a major inconvenience to many Filipinos and he hopes that it will only be temporary as they anticipate new drivers to fill in the 10,000 new slots for application.
At present, 45,000 drivers are registered under Grab Philippines.
