The public will be seeing 15 new E-trikes in the island of Boracay today.
This is as the launching of the said units is conducted today at the Barangay Balabag Plaza along with the presentation of certificates to 15 new e-trike operators.
According to former SB Member and now LGU E-trike program In Charge Dante Pagsugiron, a number of cooperative members have earlier applied for the unit and are looking forward to its operation.
This is because the e-trike will give the operators a huge advantage compared to the conventional tricycle, Pagsugiron said.
Aside from lessening noise and air pollution, drivers and operators can also save more.
The E-trike program In Charge added that even the stakeholders are eager to have e-trikes operating in the island, the reason that he pushes for it even more.
With the help of the municipal council and of the Mayor its implementation is slowly taking place.
Pagsugiron also said that their e-trikes is being supplied by the Gerweiss Motors Corporation.
