PUTRAJAYA: The Government has no interest in legalising “motorcycle taxi” services in the country due to the high number of road accidents involving motorcycles, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

While car e-hailing services like Uber and Grab have been given the Government’s green light through amendments to the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) Act, Liow said motorcycle taxi services like Dego Ride would not be given the same treatment.
