Bye Angkas and others?

On Thursday, Gardiola added that they will be coming up with a conclusive study and there is no reason to extend the pilot test a third time.

Currently, Angkas claims that they have 27,000 riders. New players JoyRide and MoveIt have 1,438 and 1,414, respectively.

March 23, 2020, is the end date of the three-month extension of the pilot test. The motorcycle taxi drivers will be apprehended on the road if they will break the law.

Gardiola also stressed that there is no law amending Republic Act No. 4136 to allow bikes for public transport.

How then would all those riders be able to run on the road? Nobody can say, "Please consider them." The law covers all. If the law says bikes are not allowed, then they are not allowed. Who then will Angkas blame?

The announcement came in the middle of the heightened tensions between Angkas and transport regulators.
