100 E-trikes Set For the Streets of Boracay Before 2013 - BLTMPC
The meeting between the Chairman of Boracay Land Transportation Multi Purpose Cooperative (BLTMPC) Joel Gelito and the Town Council of Malay yesterday had a good result.
BLTMPC appealed yesterday morning to the Town Council that BLTMPC be allowed to order 100 E-trikes from a different supplier for the replacement of traditional tricycles in the island. No contradictions were given by the Town Council on the appeal.
It can be recalled that the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Malay loaned amounting to millions to finance 100 E-trike units for Boracay which was planned to be turned over to the BLTMPC.
During the meeting, Gelito explained that BLTMPC will still accept the 100 E-trike orders of the LGU of Malay from a supplier taking into consideration that there are more than 500 traditional tricycle units that will be replaced by E-trikes in the island.
The Chairman of BLTMPC requested that the price of the units from the supplier of the Town Council not be far from the asking price of the cooperative’s supplier. This is to enable the cooperative to convince its members to agree. Members of BLTMPC will become the operators of the e-trike units.
According to Gelito, it is expected that before the end of 2012, BLTMPC will bring 100 E-trikes in the island.
