Aside from legalizing Angkas, the senate bets also showed their support for the rights and proper safety training of motorcycle riders in the country. Senatoriables who joined the event include Grace Poe, Bam Aquino, Chel Diokno, Bato dela Rosa, and JV Ejercito.

The event was also graced by Rep. Winston Castelo, the chair of the House Committee on Metro Manila Development, and Councilor Precious Hipolito-Castelo.

Senate bets claimed that Angkas’ operations must be resumed, claiming that the non-action on the part of the government board violates motorcycle riders’ rights. They recognized that Angkas has been providing decent source of income for thousands of motorcycle owners in the country, too.

“Ang totoo, ako ay saludo sa Angkas dahil binibigyan kayo ng proper training and guidance. Kailangan natin talaga ang iba’t-ibang pagkakataon at modes of transportation. May bus, may jeep, at may MRT, pero kulang pa,” Poe said. “Pero ang aking tututukan ay dapat ligtas ang ating mga pasahero. Kaya ako ay nagpapasalamat sa Angkas dahil nagbibigay sila ng tamang training sa inyong lahat,” she added.

“Naiintidihan ko talaga yung pangangailangan na magkaroon tayo ng isang batas na kinikilala ang karapatan ng mga motorcycle riders na magkaroon ng hanapbuhay na legal, hanapbuhay na kinikilala ng batas,” Diokno noted

“Ako’y anak ng tricycle driver. Motorsiklo ang gamit ng tatay ko. Nagmomotor din ako, kaya kung ako ay manalo, susuportahan ko ang Angkas bill na pending sa Senado,” dela Rosa addressed.

“Yung Angkas po, maganda yung kanilang framework, maganda yung kanilang app, marami pong natutulungan. Gaya po ninyo na puwede pong maghanapbuhay gamit ang inyong mga motor, at the same time nagbibigay ng mga leksiyon at lecture tungkol sa safety at security ninyo,” Sen. Aquino explained.

Meanwhile, Ejercito revealed that he has pending bill in Congress that eyes to address the regulation of motorcycle taxis.
