Bulacan to enforce provincial tricycle code
Wednesday, 18 April 2012
CITY OF MALOLOS- Bulacan local government units will now strictly implement the “No TODA, No Franchise” policy.

This happens as Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado approved the Provincial Ordinance No. 2012-01 also known as Tricycle Code of Bulacan which aims to improve the plight of the tricycle drivers in the province.

Alvarado said that this ordinance will also solve the perennial problem of colorum tricycles and foster province-wide unity and cooperation among tricycle operators and drivers in the province.

“Sa pamamagitan ng Tricycle Code of Bulacan, magkakaroon na lamang ng isang ordinansa na magiging batayan ng bawat bayan o lungsod sa pagpapatupad ng batas sa mga tricycle. Maiiwasan din ang suliranin sa trapiko na dulot ng kolorum na mga tricycle,” added the governor.

The ordinance was authored by Board Member Enrique Dela Cruz, Jr., Vice Gov. Daniel Fernando, Board Member Therese Cheryll Ople and Board Member Felix Ople and was approved on February 7, 2012.

As stated in the ordinance, all tricycles and pedicabs must secure a franchise or permit to operate issued by the city/municipal authority, and must be members of any accredited Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association (TODA), otherwise, they will be considered as colorums and would be illegal for them to operate.

Fernando said that the Tricycle Code will cover all motorized and non-motorized three-wheeled vehicles such as tricycles and pedicabs, either private or public plying around the province.

“Sakop din ng kodigong ito ang pagtatakda ng mga pamasahe ng mga traysikel at pedicab, ang pagbibigay ng diskwento sa mga estudyante at senior citizen at ang pagtatakda ng franchise moratorium o pansamantalang pagpapatigil ng pagbibigay ng prangkisa sa mga ruta ng traysikel,” the vice governor explained.

He added that any violation of the provisions of the Bulacan Tricycle Code shall be punished with fines of not less than P5,000 and imprisonment of not less than one month but not more than six months upon the discretion of the court. ###
