        After operating under provisional authority for the past two weeks, motorcycle taxi companies Angkas and JoyRide were finally issued Certificates of Compliance by the Department of Transportation’s (DOTr) technical working group (TWG) as part of the ongoing experimental motorcycle taxi pilot run. With this, the TWG deems the two companies fully compliant with the health protocols set by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.

        “The certificate shall be valid for the duration of the MC Taxi Pilot Study unless revoked or canceled,” the DOTr said in a statement.

        A few weeks ago, the DOTr resumed the pilot run which began last year but was halted at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The data from the experiment will be the basis for drafting a law that will legalize motorcycles-for-hire in the country.

        Among the requirements that Angkas and JoyRide were able to comply with include equipping riders with thermal scanners and health declaration forms, and submitting records of good behavior for riders who previously participated in the pilot run.
