NETIZENS MOURN UBER
The public took to social media today to express their grief on the notification by Uber that their services are no longer available.

Grab’s accreditation expired last July and was not renewed by LTFRB. However, Grab complied with the LTFRB’s orders to stop accepting and accrediting new drivers. This is the rule that LTFRB claims Uber has violated. Grab also submitted to the LTFRB its masterlist of peer drivers while Uber allegedly took its time.
Around 12 noon, a Motion of Reconsideration by UBER was filed and accepted by the LTFRB.
This happened amidst the breaking down of public mass transport systems such as the MRT3. Earlier in the day, the Metro Rail Transit (MRT 3) train unloaded passengers at the Kamuning station, due to technical problems. “Train unloaded passengers at Kamuning Station SB (southbound) at 11:28 a.m. due to technical problem,” the MRT 3 service report said. Earlier at 5:52 a.m., a southbound train also stopped due to technical problems. Passengers were unloaded at Ortigas station.
Netizens have decided to fight back and create the #LTFRBChallenge.
Update August 16, 2017: LTFRB denies Uber’s appeal.
We thank the public for its support over the last 24 hours. pic.twitter.com/h9BcdLQslh
