Over 30K Angkas Bikers Rally Against LTFRB’s New Provision, 17K Riders at Risk of Losing Jobs

Following the #SaveAngkas campaign on social media, over 30,000 Angkas bikers have joined its unity gathering in EDSA Kalayaan Shrine, White Plains to rally against the latest provision of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), wherein 17,000 Angkas riders are at risk of losing their jobs.

Recently, Angkas posted its official statement, asking netizens and its users to show their support, and fight for its 17,000 bikers who might lose their jobs.

The motorcycle taxi app also revealed that they wanted to increase the numbers of their bikers, but the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) didn’t allow them. Instead, Angkas received the news that out of their 27,000 bikers, only 10,000 bikers will have the chance to continue their service.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that there will be two new players entering the motorcycle taxi industry, namely JoyRide and Move It. With this, the government’s Technical Working Group (TWG) decided to set a new cap of 39,000 split among the three companies, including Angkas.

Hence, Angkas will be limited to only 10,000 bikers in Metro Manila, and 3,000 bikers in Metro Cebu.
