Starting today, Uber is no longer available.
And this will last for ONE WHOLE MONTH.
This is because the LTFRB has suspended the transport network company for violating its order to stop accepting new applications for transport network vehicle services (TNVS)

What do inefficient people do? Get rid of who's efficient so they'll look like they're doing something. That's LTFRB to Uber. 😈

LTFRB: "Taxis are unsafe. Buses cause traffic. MRT keeps breaking down."
LTFRB: "Hmm.. Let's cancel UBER!"

LTFRB, you're supposed to help us… Not make it harder for us.
I'm sorry but fuck you.

And if you think that this Uber suspension affects only a certain group of people. THINK AGAIN.
What have you done, LTFRB?
UPDATE: UBER is now back online as the company has filed a motion for reconsideration on its suspension
