In an act of defiance or may be arrogance, Uber Philippines resumes its operations even after LTFRB ordered the company to suspend their operation for 1 month.
Here’s what Uber said in a Facebook post;
In response to overwhelming rider and driver demand, we have filed a motion for reconsideration with the LTFRB. This means that Uber’s operations will continue until the motion is resolved. Consequently, we will be resuming serving Metro Manila and Cebu.
Over the course of this morning, tens of thousands of riders were left stranded, causing needless inconvenience, while drivers were unable to access the earning opportunities they rely on. We are looking forward to urgently resolving this matter with LTFRB in the interests of everyone who depends on Uber every day.
Update: LTFRB denied Uber’s motion for reconsideration, suspension still in effect.
