Irene Belmonte denounces LTFRB’s tricycle ban


She grew up riding these road trekkers.

Councilor Irene Belmonte of Quezon City voiced her dismay against the order of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) in banning tricycles as school shuttle for kids.

Belmonte vouched for trikes, as she actually grew up riding these to and from school back in the day.

“Lumaki ako sa San Isidro Galas gamit ang tricycle bilang school service namin magkakapatid. Kaya tama ang ating vMayor Joy Belmonte na kailangan lang di overloading, hindi colorum, at hindi out of line,” the politiko said as she shared the statement of Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte.

There’s a way to ensure safety while not depriving students of options.
