The Town Council session on Tuesday was filled with different reactions about the e-trike issue.
Thus the Council made the decision to set the issue aside and hand the answering of questions about the e-trike to the Department of Energy (DOE).
The Land Transportation Office (LTO)-Aklan has no position with regard to the operation of the e-trike in Boracay. Likewise, the Local Government of Malay has no laws that regulate and governs the operation of the vehicle.
Hence, for now the status of the e-trike remains a question to the public especially to the Boracay Land Transportation Multi Purpose Cooperative (BLTMPC).
According to Town Council Member Dante Pagsugiron, the LTO has been consulted once about the status of the e-trike but no answer was given and that e-trikes will not also be caught arbitrarily.
In order to answer the questions and issues regarding the matter, a meeting was set by the Local Government of Malay on the 28th of June in Boracay. The meeting will coincide with the presentation of the DOE about the government’s program that has to do with the e-trike.
