CITY’S 14TH SP OK’S ENVIRONMENT-FRIENDLY TRICYCLE

The Fourteenth Sangguniang Panlungsod headed by City Vice Mayor Jose Antonio S. Veloso approved during their March 6, 2020 regular session an ordinance which will adopt a more environment-friendly tricycle as a mode of public transportation. Currently, the existing ordinance prior to the passage of this ordinance, only allows for public transportation motorized tricycles composed of a motorcycle with attached sidecar supported by one wheel. With this ordinance, a three-wheeled vehicle/motorcab propelled by a motor, either internal combustion or electric, with a rated maximum passenger capacity of six (6) persons including the driver will be allowed to render transport services to the general public for a fee.

This move on the part of the Sangguniang Panlungsod is in consonance with the City’s thrust to use more fuel-efficient transportation and thereby reduce greenhouse gas emission and improve air quality of our environment. Not only will it be a win for our environment but also a win for our commuting citizens who will have access to more transport services.
