150 more tricycle franchises asked due to Tagum’s boom 

may 15, 2014

The Tagum City Tricycle Franchising Regulatory Board has asked the City Council to grant franchises to 150 tricycle units to join with the 3,150 tricycles-for-hire plying due to apparent physical changes in Tagum City in a span of 12 years after tricycle franchise grants were stopped.

TCTFRB chairman and city legal counsel Armando Seras in committee hearing Wednesday said that in his view on the “physical circumstances” that the city had undergone such as the establishments of various malls they recommended only 150 additional units of the 215 applicants that would be granted with Motorized Tricycle Operator’s Permit.
TCTFRB argued in its resolution that the city “has gone through tremendous and remarkable improvements such as mushrooming malls, hotels, commercial establishments, visible rise of population and increased road networks.”
The last time the City Council granted tricycle franchises through a resolution was in July 2002.
The joint committees of laws and transportation of the Tagum City Council will still act on the TCTFRB’s request although committee member Councilor Nicandro “Nickel” Suaybaguio, Jr. contended there is a “need for a formal study” to support the additional 150 tricycle franchises requested.
