According to Stop & Go Coalition president Jun Magno, the two private booking services gravely affect the livelihood of the organization's taxi and UV Express drivers - arguing that Uber and GrabCar hold no franchise at all.

Magno told local radio dzMM:
Napakalaking epekto nito sa hanapbuhay ng mga miyembro namin na taxi driver at UV Express. Itong Uber at Grab, wala naman itong franchise (source)
Sometime this year, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) granted accreditation to both Uber and GrabCar so that they will be able to continue with their operation in the metro.
