“Aging Policy” for old tricycles in Boracay, final

Old and worn down tricycles in Boracay will only have 6 months whenever the E-trikes will be entering the island.

This is the final agreement between the E-trike adhoc committee regarding the old units in the island particularly those which could not be covered by the “Aging Policy,” set by the Local Government of Malay.

The Policy states that motorcycle units bought before 2008 will be allowed to operate, however this shall be limited and will be staying in the island for only 6 months.

According to Malay Transportation Officer Cezar Oczon, there are more than 100 tricycle units in Boracay which are beyond the limit of the said “Aging” basis as per the LGU’s record.

These units will then be transported to the mainland and will be auctioned by the financer or dealer of the unit depending on its amount for the operators to profit from it.

Meanwhile, as the arrival of the e-trikes in the island is still on process, it is being expected that by June that implementation of the said policy will commence.
