Only backriding by private user is being considered by the Department of Transportation (DOTr) subject to the release of health safety guidelines by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF).
Health and safety protocols are now being formulated by the DOTr, Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Department of Health (DOH), Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) according ti. DOTr Assistant Secretary Goddes Libiran.
Last week, Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque already said that backriding has been approved “in principle” upon the approval of the protocols.
Similarly, Senator Bong Go, Mayor Sara Duterte, Senator Ralph Recto, Rep. Ronnie Ong, Rep. Alfred Vargas and various LGU official all over the Philippines have expressed the need and importance of backriding during this time.
However, this excludes motorcycle taxi services. DOTr reiterated that the pilot study of motorcycle taxis has already expired in April and they have submitted their recommendations to the House of Representatives which will give them the signal if they will be allowed to continue operations.
