LTFRB to open 10,000 new TNVS slots Romina Cabrera (The Philippine Star) – June 2, 2019 – 12:00am MANILA, Philippines — The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) is set to open 10,000 slots for new applications for Transport Network Vehicle Service (TNVS) units. In an advisory, the board said the online registration for TNVS franchise applications will start on June 10. This comes as ridehailing platform Grab appealed to the LTFRB to open up the new slots to address vehicle supply issues. Last month, Grab said the board should open 15,000 slots so that the firm can open up its platform to new drivers. The transport network company added that 85 to 90 percent of their 50,000-strong fleet already have their franchises while the rest are awaiting their hearings with the board. Grab said it would be able to reach the 65,000 TNVS cap imposed by the LTFRB should the agency open the remaining 15,000 slots. Grab said that once the cap is reached, the board and stakeholders can start the process of reviewing the TNVS limit.
