The City Transport and Traffic Management Office (CTTMO) has recorded 153 registrations of tricycles, pedal-operated trisikads, and other motorized tricycles for hire in Agdao District.
Most of the vehicles are in Barangay R. Castillo, with 103 of 200 operating units already applied for registration. It is followed by Barangay Ubalde with 34 out of 60 units and Barangay San Antonio with 16 out of 50 units.
CTTMO chief Dionisio Abude said some operators may yet apply for registration due to lack of required documents, such as accomplished registration form, Official Receipt of payment/Certificate of Registration (OR/CR) photocopy, photocopy of common carrier insurance for passengers, photocopy of driver’s license, barangay clearance, police clearance, photocopy of residence certificate, health certificate, official receipt and order of payment.
“We will give them time, after which we will implement another operation against those who have not registered,” Abude said.
He said CTTMO will give the operators six months to comply all documents and register their units but since they already assigned date of registration for the 32 barangays which is set until June 19, unregistered operators will be catered afterwards.
After June 19, CTTMO will be compiling data from its franchising and regulatory division as to how many units were still unregistered.
Meanwhile, in order to regulate fares, CTTMO is eyeing on conducting consultations with barangays to determine their suggestions with possibility of initiating a committee hearing.
The City Council has allowed the CTTMO to register the once illegally operating improvised motorized tricycle and other similar transportations.
