Odiongan Vice Mayor Diven Fos Dimaala wants more trike passengers
Odiongan Vice Mayor Diven Fos Dimaala has an appeal to higher ups: if motorcycles can have backriders, then tricycles should be able to take in more passengers.
In a Facebook post, Dimaala said tricycles should be allowed to have up to three passengers: on inside, one at the back, and the other behind the driver.
Plastic barriers could be installed to prevent contact, he said.
This set up would allow tricycle drivers to earn enough for their needs and would do away with higher fares, he said.
Will officials listen?
“Kung pinayagan na ng DILG ang backriding with barrier,
Dapat payagan na rin ang tricycle na mag sakay ng dalawa hanggang tatlo na pasahero..
Isa sa loob, isa sa likod ng sidecar,at isa sa likod ng driver.
Provided na may plastic barrier in between.
Para naman mag mura na ang pamasahe at kumita ng maayos ang ating mga TODA..
#SERBISYONGMAYPUSO,” Dimaala posted.
