Nobody would win in the scenario with fewer Angkas bikes, this politiko said.

Actor now Quezon City Congressman Alfred Vargas sided with commuters and the motorcycle taxi firm Angkas, which is now at risk of losing 17,000 drivers at the whim of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board.

“I join the strong public appeal to #SaveAngkas. Angkas bikers have proven they render safe public transport service. Tens of thousands of commuters who cannot afford the high fares of ride-hailing services rely on the Angkas bikers for a fast, affordable, and safe commute,” Vargas said as he helped make the hashtag trend on Twitter.

His other worry would be livelihood, as drivers are at risk of losing their jobs.
