LTFRB Suspends Uber for a Month


AUGUST 14, 2017 | The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board on Monday suspended the accreditation and operations of Uber System Inc. (Uber) for one month.


In its advisory, the LTFRB said the board meted out the penalty of one month suspension “on the accreditation of Uber System, inc. (Uber) and was ordered to cease and desist its operations of their online booking application during the period of suspension.”

LTFRB also recommended that Uber extend financial assistance to affected peer-operators during the one-month suspension “as an expression of good faith”, noting that the operators “would not have suffered the current predicament were it not for the predatory actions of respondent user.”



The suspension takes effect immediately.

Copies of the suspension were furnished to enforcers of the LTFRB, Land Transportation Office, Metro Manila Development Authority and the Philippine National Police Highway Patrol Group.


Uber and rival Grab have been locked in dispute with the LTFRB over the scope of regulation on ride-sharing services, sparking separate investigations by the Senate and the House of Representatives.

The LTFRB earlier fined Uber and Grab P5 million each, accusing the companies of operating some 50,000 vehicles without proper permits.
