Peaceful and problem free--this was how Boracay Land and Transportation Multi-Purpose Cooperative (BLTMPC) Chairman Ryan Tubi described the 24 hour Color Coding Scheme which started in Boracay yesterday.
In an interview, Tubi said that there were no complaints made about the new Color Coding Scheme schedule.
Previously, the Color Coding was only 12 hours per day, 7 days a week. But since allegedly due to the request of tricycle drivers to make the color Coding 24 hours, the request was granted.
It was said that the reason given by the tricycle drivers for the request was that 12 hours of work was not enough, and the new 24 hour schedule would be beneficial since the drivers would have 24 hours for a rest in preparation for the next day of work.
Meanwhile, Tubi is confident that the scheme is followed because the Police, Municipal Auxiliary Police and even the office of the BLTMPC are on watch 24 hours a day.
There are two tricycle colors in the island: blue and yellow.
The tricycles plying the streets of the island yesterday were only colored blue, while yellow is the color of tricycles plying the streets today.
