Mayor Vico Green Lights Resumption Of Tricycle Ops In Pasig


Tricycle transportation in Pasig City will resume operations on Monday (May 18), as Metro Manila adopts new rules and regulations under the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ).

“Good news! Inaprubahan na ng DILG ang Pasig LGU guidelines para sa operations ng mga tricycle (Good news! The DILG has approved the Pasig LGU guidelines for the operations of tricycles),” Mayor Vico Sotto announced on his Twitter account.

He also posted guidelines to be observed by tricycle operators, drivers and passengers.

Tricycle transportations are allowed to operate from 5 a.m. to 12 midnight, he said.

While only one passenger will be allowed to ride a tricycle, he said an individual will be allowed to be accompanied by one other person if a valid medical reason is presented.

A barrier must also be installed between the passenger and the driver, he said.

He said disinfection and sanitation of the tricycle units must be implemented at least twice a day.

The city government, he said, will provide disinfectants to the tricycle operators.

Private tricycles are allowed to travel provided that a “not for hire” signage is posted.

Still, only one passenger is allowed to ride the tricycle aside from the driver.

Sotto urged tricycle operators to coordinate with the city’s Tricycle Operators and Drivers’ Association (TODA) and Tricycle Operation and Regulatory Office (TORO) regarding the transportation guidelines.

Meanwhile, he reminded all Pasigueños to observe safe physical distancing and wearing of face masks outside their home premises amid the city’s transition to MECQ. (PNA)
