The Philippines Just Made Uber Legal Everywhere Stats Reveal All

In the statement published on the internet recently, the country’s transportation department declared that it would post additional information this week. The step comes somewhat more than a year following Uber introduced its service within Metro Manila, the nation’s capital, and after a few months of operating within the Philippines with no formal regulations.

Jun Abaya, the Philippines’ Department of Transportation and Communications secretary, said:“We view technological innovation as a driver for progress, especially in transportation where it can provide safer and more convenient commuting options to the public.”

He also said: “App-based transport services help address the increasing demand for mobility spurred by rapid urbanization.”

All of the info on the regulations haven't been finalized, in general, the DOTC claims vehicles that operate on these types of services need to have a GPS system; should be sedans, SUVs, Asian Utility Vehicles (AUVs), or vans; and can’t be a little more than 7 years old. Operators also are necessary to get certificates for every vehicle on the service, as well as drivers should be screened as well as approved by Uber (or other ride-hailing services) and also registered with the local transport regulatory board.
