Shifting to new units for tricycles in Boracay, now prohibited

The Municipal Transportation Office together with the Municipal Council of Malay targets to disseminate and explain to tricycle drivers and or operators in Boracay the strict prohibition of applications for shifting or changing motorcycles for a new unit.

In line with this, SB Member Dante Pagsugiron advices the operators to avoid purchasing new motorcycles in exchange to the units that they are currently using.

This is because the council has a resolution to stop the issuance of permits for now, which is in line with the implementation of the Electric tricycle or e-trike program in the island.

The councilman also advised the operators, especially those who are planning to change their current units to consult the transportation office to examine if there really is a need for a new unit or this could be repaired for the meantime.

Pagusigon explained that the Local government of Malay finds it difficult dealing with those who has a new motorcycle unit as most drivers/owners often reason out that the units needs to be on operation as it is still for payment or is an installment.

Reasons which can actually affect the E-trike program in the island.
