Grab nakikinabang sa kawalan ng motorcycle taxi

By: - 01/21/2020

DAPAT umanong ipagpatuloy ng Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board ang isinasagawa nitong pilot implementation ng motorcycle taxi dahil hindi lamang nito inaalisan ang mga mananakay ng opsyon kundi pinapaboran din ang Grab.

Ayon kay Marikina Rep. Stella Luz Quimbo dapat ay manatiling “evidence-based” ang paggawa ng polisiya ng LTFRB.

“The reason for why Angkas, JoyRide, and Move It can operate is precisely because they are the subjects of the pilot study. Hence, LTFRB’s move to withdraw the study is tantamount to putting up what competition authorities call a “barrier to entry”, ani Quimbo.

Paliwanag ni Quimbo sa pagtigil ng LTFRB sa pilot implementation ay mistulang pagharang sa pagpasok sa merkado ng mga bagong player sa transport industry.

Maaari umanong sabihin na kakompetensya ng Grab ang mga motorcycle taxi kaya kung haharangin ang pagpasok ng mga motorcycle taxi ay masasabi na nabigyan ng “undue advantage” ang Grab.

“With this move by the LTFRB (stop pilot implementation), commuters would once again be left with Grab as their only option in the market,” dagdag pa ng lady solon. “LTFRB’s move to withdraw the study is thus anti-competitive: it limits consumer choices prematurely and possibly, unfairly. Consumer safety is paramount, but such objectives must also be balanced with competition principles.”

Sinabi pa ni Quimbo na ang pilot study ay kailangan upang makagawa ng angkop na regulasyon at maproteksyunan ang mga pasahero.

“In the process, it should not kill jobs, narrow consumer choice, or eradicate market options that have the potential to effectively compete with transportation options such as Grab.  Kung ang tunay na kakampi ng LTFRB ay ang riding public, tatapusin nila ang pag-aaral na may layunin na maghanap ng agarang solusyon sa problema ng kakulangan at nagmamahal na public transportation.”
