#SaveAngkas: Angkas issues the most heartfelt public advisory in hopes of saving 17,000 families
With the holidays just around the corner and all the hustle and bustle of people trying to buy last-minute gifts for their loved ones, traffic is at its worst. We all know that it is but thanks to Angkas, a ride-hailing platform — we get by.
Netizens online expressed their growing disappointment towards the governing body for this unwarranted decision, as well as a lot of love and praise for Angkas bikers, who were deemed by some as kind, helpful, and polite.
Read some of their sentiments below:
Important to note that the number of habal-habal drivers will actually INCREASE. Before, Angkas was the only player with 27,000 drivers. Now, the government is allowing 39,000 drivers and two new players (JoyRide and Move It). Angkas just has to share those slots now. #SaveAngkas https://t.co/Wkx2nnqtwx

What could be the repercussion/s of the limitation set by LTFRB if 17,000 Angkas bikers are at risk of losing their livelihood?

With 17,000 families of bikers and a ton of commuters who are to be affected by this decision, Angkas created another movement in their appeal to turn this decision over.
#Save Angkas: Unity Gathering
This coming December 22, 2019, at the EDSA Kalayaan shrine, White Plains (6 AM), Angkas calls out to everyone in their hope to save their 17,000 bikers.
