MANILA - Transport regulators ordered new ride-sharing service U-Hop on Monday to stop accepting new applications and activating new drivers. 

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board said it had not lifted the July 11 suspension on new applications for transport network vehicle services.

The agency also ordered U-Hop to stop using the LTFRB logo on its certificates of accreditation without the office's permission. 

Last July, the LTFRB fined ride-sharing services grab and Uber P5 million each for violating the terms of their accrediation.

In August, the regulator also slapped Uber a P190 million fine.
