More than 500 units of traditional tricycles on the island of Boracay are expected to be replaced next year.
Former Sangguniang Bayan member and E-Trike Program Focal Person Dante Pagsuguiron said that a total of 538 units of tricycle with franchise from LGU will be gradually replaced by e-trikes in the following months.
Presently there are 50 units of electric tricycle operating in Boracay and still increases.
Meanwhile Pagsuguiron said that they are having problems with the manufacturer of e-trike that could supply the demand for the gradual replacement of tricycle until 2015.
LGU Malay is aiming for additional units of E-Trikes as another tourist attraction for APEC 2015.
It will be recalled that last year old tricycle were only given up to six months to operate in the island, as per agreement of the adhoc committee.
