GASOLINE-RUN TRIKES, KULIGLIGS, PEDICABS TO BE PHASE OUT IN MANILA THIS OCTOBER



Gasoline-run tricycles, kuligligs, and pedicabs will be phased out in the city of Manila starting next month.



Mayor Joseph Estrada said this is a part of his goal to transform Manila into electronic tricycle or e-trike capital of the Philippines.

Estrada said there are 125,000 gasoline-run tricycles, kuligligs and pedicabs plying all over the city “without a franchise” at the present.


The Manila city government allocated an initial amount of P120 million to purchase 10,000 seven-seater e-trikes.




It can be fully charged in four hours and travel up to 80 kilometers.

According to the mayor, e-trikes will be distributed to qualified tricycle drivers and bona fide city residents who will lose their income from the phaseout. 



Under the e-trike program, those who will receive the vehicles will pay P150 to P200 per day for four years.
