Taguig City is set to distribute the second tranche of financial assistance to tricycle drivers.

Even under a modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ), tricycles are still not allowed to operate in Taguig City.

The city government said that it continues to fully support its tricycle drivers and announced the second round of the P4,000 crisis assistance to all Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association (TODA) drivers.

To continue keeping its citizens safe even during the MECQ, the local government still wants to limit movement in the city in order to prevent COVID-19 transmissions.

“We encourage those buying essentials to buy within their neighborhood to curtail the spread of the virus. For businesses that are allowed to open, we require them to provide service vehicles for those employees who need it,” the city said.

Taguig assured that tricyle drivers, as well as other PUV drivers, are taken care of in the city. They have received P4,000 allowance last month and will soon receive the same amount during the second round of distribution.

The Safe City Task Force is closely monitoring the transport sector as well as the needs of the riding public in the City of Taguig.

“As advised by the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases, we will transition slowly and carefully and take utmost precautions in the decisions we make,” the city said.
