NEWS: No taripa yet for Tagum P10 tricycle fare due to Dolfo

sept 6

Wondering why the P10 fare for tricycle ride is not yet being implemented?

There’s still no taripa yet that can be issued by the transportation department of City Mayor Rey Uy as the provincial board resolution was not yet signed by Davao del Norte Governor Rodolfo del Rosario.

“The governor is just so busy these days,” informed Boardmember Roger Israel last Friday when the governor led in accommodating the visiting Supreme Court Chief Justice Reynato Puno for the Justice on Wheels’ sortie for the province and Compostela Valley.

As of last Thursday the resolution confirming the city ordinance for P10 tricycle fare was already transmitted to the office of the governor after it was signed by Vice Gov. Victorio Suaybaguio Sr., bared Israel.

He said that the governor could have already signed it today and might be picked up by a representative of the city government or the office of the governor will transmit it to the City Hall.

On August 25 the Sangguniang Panlalawigan unanimously approved Resolution No. 503 confirming the fare-increasing City Ordinance No. 305, which was also unanimously approved by the city council last July 28.

The still present P7 tricycle fare will increase to P10 although students, senior citizens and differently-abled persons would only pay P8 or an increase of P1 for a city-limit ride.

This developed as the prices of the gasoline have been decreasing since the recent weeks.
The clamor of the tricycle owners and drivers for an increased P10 fare arose as the gasoline prices almost doubled from January price level this year when they demanded for it last July.
Israel said that since gasoline prices have been decreasing these days the city passengers could possibly petition the City Hall for the reduction of the approved but still unimplemented P10 tricycle fare.
This would again lead to a new public hearing, he added. (Cha Monforte/Rural Urban News)
