Taguig plans to have cashless payments for tricycles

By Dhel Nazario

To ensure a contactless commute, Taguig City plans to have cashless payments for tricycles using cellphones with the guidance of the City Government.


Tricycle drivers will not resume operations in Taguig City even as Metro Manila will be under the General Community Quarantine (GCQ) on Monday.

The tricycle associations will delay operations to give ample time to prepare and install proper health and safety measures.

The city said it will be working closely with the different Tricycle Operators and Drivers Associations (TODA) to establish safety guidelines and adhere to the minimum health standards advised by the national government to make commuting via tricycles safe in the City of Taguig.

Registered TODA drivers, as well as pedicab drivers, will receive a P4,000 allowance as the second tranche of social amelioration from the local government.

The Safe City Task Force urges all businesses in the City of Taguig to provide
transportation for their employees.

"We also encourage our constituents to stay at home unless for essential travel such as buying of essential goods and, as much as possible, to limit movement within the bounds of their barangays," city officials said.
