Muntinlupa tricycles to be allowed on the road again

account_balanceMuntinlupa News account_circleMichael Lim chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

Muntinlupa City will alow tricycles to transport authorized passengers starting May 25 as long as they follow sanitary measures amid the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ).

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi approved Executive Order No. 15 s.2020 allowing the resumption of tricycle operations in the city during MECQ.

The resumption of tricycle operations in Muntinlupa is in accordance with the recommendation of Muntinlupa Traffic Management Bureau and Omnibus Public Transportation Guidelines as approved by the Department of Transportation.

Tricycle Operators and Drivers Associations (TODA) will implement an odd-even scheme where all members with Tricycle Regulatory Unit (TRU) numbers ending in an odd digit will be allowed to operate on M-W-F schedule, while those with TRU numbers ending in an even digit will be allowed on T-Th-S schedule.

TODA members are not allowed on Sundays and may only operate from 5:00 AM – 12:00 MN.

Tricycle drivers must install transparent plastic sheet separating the passenger cab and driver to avoid physical contact. Tricycles are to be disinfected at least twice a day and must have alcohol-based sanitizers.

One passenger per tricycle will be strictly followed with an exemption on emergency cases. Due to limited passenger load, each trip will be considered a “special trip” and will amount not exceeding P25.00.

Passengers allowed to board on tricycles include essential workers, frontliners, workers of allowed industries, and heads of households buying essential goods provided that they present quarantine pass and valid ID.

A mandatory temperature check will be conducted in terminals. Disinfecting facility with soap and water, or sanitizers, must also be made available. Tricycle drivers and passengers are mandated to wear face masks at all times.

MTMB-TRU will conduct random inspections to validate the compliance of TODAs. Tricycle drivers found in violation of the guidelines will be penalized.

Muntinlupa City recorded the highest COVID-19 recovery rate in Metro Manila at 56.85% as of May 16. Further, COVID-19 transmission in the city is slowing down with a doubling time of eight days.

Fresnedi said the local government will implement more stringent quarantine measures and will not be complacent amid MECQ and with the high recovery rate among Muntinlupa’s COVID-19 cases.  The local exec reminded city residents that they should continue to observe physical distancing and wear masks when going out of their homes. 

Muntinlupa City has 205 confirmed cases with 127 recoveries, 48 active cases, 30 reported deaths, 21 suspect cases, and 195 probable cases as of May 21.
