Tricycle drivers can make a difference in the lives of residents too even during the quarantine.

Councilor Kate Coseteng proudly announced that tricycle drivers in Quezon City can still make a living even under the Luzon lockdown, thanks to the city hall.

Ten tricycle drivers in each area will be tapped to work for the distribution of family food packs. Drivers will be paid P500 per shift, on top of free meals.

Inatasan ng LGU ang tricycle drivers para sa paghahatid ng tulong sa ating mga mamayan para magkaroon din sila ng kita para sa pangangailangan ng kanilang pamilya,” Under the plan, TRD head Ben Ibon said 10 tricycle drivers from a specific Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association (TODA) in each of the City’s six districts will be tapped to work everyday. “Kada araw, ibang TODA naman ang pagkukunan natin ng tao at rotation ang duty para magkaroon ng pagkakataon ang lahat na kumita kahit paano,” said Ibon. Tricycle drivers will be paid P500 per shift, on top of free meals. “Ang kanilang magiging trabaho ay tumulong sa paghahanda ng family food packs.” said Ibon. Aside from this, the local government is working on other programs to help tricycle drivers whose livelihoods have been affected by the enhanced community quarantine due to the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Excellent job @mayorjoybelmonte and Sir Ben Ibon?
