The Tricycle Adjudication Board (TAB) reminds motorized tricycle operators and drivers of the August 31 deadline for the renewal of franchises, as provided for in City Council resolution 622.

The deadline was also the consensus reached during a meeting between Mayor Beng Climaco, the members of the TAB, some City Councilors and the officers of the different tricycle operators and drivers associations (TODAs) held last May.

Earlier, the deadline for franchise renewal, based on Council Resolution 518, approved on May 5, 2015 was May 31, 2015. However, this was extended to August 31 due to requests from the TODAs.

Resolution 622 amends resolution 518 and in effect extends the deadline from May 31, 2015 to August 31, 2015 “to give ample time for operators to renew their expired tricycle franchises.”

The request for extension came from the leaders of the different TODAs in the city during a meeting in City Hall last May.  — Sheila Covarrubias
