Pasig deploys e-trikes for residents seeking check-ups
Pasig City has deployed e-trikes to transport patients that require regular medical check-up or treatment at health facilities in the city amid the enhanced community quarantine.
“E-trikes will be used to transport Pasigueños with chronic diseases and those who require regular check-ups or procedures to any medical facility within Pasig City,” Pasig Transport announced on its Facebook page.
Those who could avail of the free ride are patients with chronic diseases, those who need regular dialysis or chemotherapy.
Free rides are also offered to Persons With Disability (PWDs), pregnant women, and those who need regular medical treatments but are not considered emergencies.
Following the implementation of the quarantine due to the threat of COVID-19, modes of public transport have been suspended, which has made it difficult for patients who require regular medical treatments to get to health facilities.
To avail of the free service, the Pasigueños should provide their name, contact number, their preferred pick-up point, the time of their check-up, and the address of their hospital, clinic, or health center.
They should also provide proof of their regular medical appointment in the said health facility.
“They need to call two days before their scheduled date of check-up,” Pasig Transport said. “This will be [on] a first come, first served basis.”
“Because of the limited number of e-trikes, please advise us if your check-up will push through so the e-trikes will be used by those who need [them].”
For reservations of e-trikes, residents may call 8-643-0000.
