Grab maintains fares are legal


Grab Philippines maintained that its fares are ?legal and upfront ? and covered by a Department of Transportation Order in 2015.

The DOT ruling allowed transport network companies (TNC) to set their own fares.

Leo Gonzales, head of Grab Philippines Public Affairs said even the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board confirmed this in a February 2016 decision saying the DO was “valid, legal and subsisting until nullified by court”.

Gonzalez said the DO was issued to “promote mobility” and respond to the needs of the modern commuter (who is)…able and willing to pay more for better transport services,? Gonzalez said.

Grab issued the statement after PBA Representative Jericho Nograles accused the ride-sharing app of charging an ?illegal? minimum fare of P80 and charging its passengers P2 per minute.
