        Motorcycle taxi company Angkas will have to wait a little longer for its riders to resume operations under the extended pilot run program.

        Last week, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) announced that the three accredited motorcycle taxi companiesAngkas, JoyRide, and Move Itmay resume operations starting today, November 23, subject to their compliance with safety guidelines outlined by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.

        “Please be informed that upon inspection held in the Angkas facility last Saturday, the TWG [technical working group] noted two items that need to be complied with ASAP,” says DOTr assistant secretary Goddess Hope Libiran.

        • Each rider must be equipped with a thermal scanner or completed health declaration forms for both rider and passenger as a preventative measure against the spread of COVID-19.
        • Confirmation from Angkas management that all participating riders have undergone background checks to ensure none of them committed offenses during the previous pilot run.

        “We are just waiting for Angkas to inform us of their compliance in these two remaining items. Once they confirm their compliance, we will issue a Notice to Proceed immediately,” Libiran added.

        As for the fate of JoyRide and Move It, the DOTr said the TWG is scheduled to conduct an inspection on the former’s training facility today, while the latter has yet to request for a schedule.
