LTFRB launches online portal for TNVS drivers’ concerns
Weeks after the Anti-red Tape Authority (Arta) directed it to streamline the processes for transport network companies, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has launched a new online application portal to address the concerns of transport network vehicle services (TNVS) drivers. Starting Wednesday, TNVS drivers who wish to set an appointment to have their provisional authorities stamped, or check the status of their franchise, motions for reconsideration and other orders may log on to Ltfrb.ph.net/tnvs/appt. The move is in compliance with Republic Act No. 11032, also known as the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018, and Transport Secretary Arthur Tugade’s directive to speed up the processing of franchise for TNVS units, said LTFRB chair Martin Delgra III. The online portal also complies with Arta’s order last month to, among others, automatically approve all pending TNVS applications.
