Trike drivers warned of stiff fines for overpricing

The City Council is working on an ordinance establishing the tourism frontliners tricycles.

Tricycles with valid franchises are obliged to post the standard fare matrix given to them by the City Traffic Office to inform their passengers, Allan Mabella, Traffic Enforcment and Administrative Officer, said Monday.
Lahat ng tricycle drivers should post their ID, License and Franchise Certificate pati yung fare matrix,” Mabella said.
He also said that before the franchises are issued, pubic utility drivers are oriented on the standard fare matrix.
Alam ‘yan ng mga driver with franchise na ang standard fare ay P8 for senior citizens and students, additional one pesos per exceeding kilometer,” Mabella said.
He warned drivers who overprice their passengers of the stiff penalties, computed at P1,000 fine for every P1 overpricing.
Pag nag-overprice ang driver, P1 peso is to P1,000, unless may prior arrangement ang driver and passenger or in case of ‘arkila at pakyawan‘,” Mabella said.
City Councilor Rolando Amurao, chair of the committee on transportation, said that they will introduce legislation to penalize overpricing and other violations.
Marami pa ding nakakalusot, ‘yung mga colorum. Maghihintay kami ng implementation ng isang program to issue franchises to over 2,250 tricycles to reduce ‘yung mga illegal na pumapasada,”  Amurao said.
