- Carla Abellana shares her comment about LTFRB’s unawareness of Grab’s imposed minimum fare
- Netizens reacted on Abellana’s opinion
Kapuso actress Carla Abellana hits on the Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board or LTFRB’s claims of not knowing Grab Car and Grab Premium’s automatic minimum fare of P80 – P125.
Being a personality that often shares her comments regarding several economic and government matters, Abellana didn’t stop herself from taking a photo of GMA Network’s 24 Oras headline “GrabCar at GrabPremium, automatic na naniningil ng P80 at P125 minimum fare nang di alam ng LTFRB”
She expressed her disbelief by writing “Ngayon niyo lang nalaman, LTFRB?” followed by an emoji.
According to the reports, LTFRB Chairman Martin Delgra III announced that the board was not informed of the minimum charges of Grab. He also expressed his confusion about the pricing scheme.
“We were not informed (about Grab implementing a minimum rate)… (It’s) only today that we understood that there is a distinction between the minimum fare and base fare,”
In a statement from Puwersa ng Bayaning Atleta (PBA) Partylist Rep. Jericho Nograles, he said that Grab once again imposed a new illegal fare condition considering that the company has denied having to apply P80 minimum fare.
“Without any public hearing, Grab Philippines again unilaterally imposed a new illegal fare condition. [D]uring the April 17 LTFRB hearing, Grab Philippines denied to the board that they impose an P80 minimum fare.”
Netizens have mixed opinions regarding Ms. Abellana’s Instagram story about the matter. Some are voicing out their own side regarding the issue while others seemed annoyed.
“Itong Grab talaga naman cmpleng oportunista din eh. Kaya minsan mas bet ko pa talagang magtaxi. Sabay dasal na lng ako na sna ung driver mabait at hdi ako dudugasin. At kpg ganun ang nangyari nagsosobra ako ng 20php sa byad ko.”
“This girl is so pampam. Nakikisakay sa mga problema”
“Itong si carla super pakialamera sa mga government issues. May plano yatang tumakbo sa susunod na halalan”
“May pakialam lang sya, tatakbo na? Ikaw ba ok lang sa’yo lahat ng nangyayari sa Pinas?”
