        The Department of Transportation (DOTr) has issued Angkas with a Provisional Authority to Operate under the extended motorcycle taxi pilot run program.

        According to a press statement, the development is pending confirmation of compliance to pending operational requirements” set by the National Task Force for COVID-19 (NTF) and the DOTr’s technical working group (TWG). These requirements include rider and passenger insurance in case of accidents, and the mandatory use of thermal scanners for fever detection. The latter is still up for discussion with the NTF.

        On Monday, the DOTr noted two items that Angkas needed to comply with immediately upon inspection of the company’s facility over the weekend: riders must have a thermal scanner or completed health declaration forms for both rider and passenger, and they must undergo background checks to ensure good behavior during the last round of the pilot run.

        The TWG said the provisional authority will be valid until December 9, 2020. Once the Angkas is able to fully comply with the requirements, a Certificate of Compliance shall be issued to them by the MC Taxi TWG.”

It will continue based on the compliance of the three approved providers—Angkas, JoyRide, and Move It—to the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases’ health standards.
