From trikes to joyrides! Antipolo Mayor Andeng Ynares turns city’s trike drivers into delivery boys
The limitation on public transportation due to the lockdown has affected the livelihood of many of Antipolo city’s tricycle drivers.
But Mayor Andeng Ynares has found a way to help them earn a living.
In a Facebook post, Ynares said she had partnered with delivery service firms JoyRide and Happy Move to take in 2,000 to 3,000 of the city’s tricycle drivers.
Under the scheme, they would become delivery boys for these firms, whose services are now very much in demand.
The sidecars of the tricycles could be removed in the meantime, she said.
She also said the addition of more delivery drivers would keep more people in their homes and ease traffic as well.
Ynares said she was now devising a system to provide petty cash to the new delivery drivers who have no funds to pay in advance for the items ordered.
This looks like a project that would benefit everyone!
“Nakipag partner po tayo sa JoyRide at Happy Move upang bigyan ALTERNATIBO at MAS MALAKING PAGKAKAKAKITAAN ang 2,000-3,000 tricycle drivers natin sa Lungsod na naapektuhan ng mga bagong patakaran na naglilimita (odd-even scheme) ng public transportation. Mula sa pagiging tricycle drivers ay magiging Joyride Pabili o Joyride Customer delivery riders sila na sobrang in demand sa mga panahon ngayon (tanggalin lang muna ang sidecar). Sana makatulong din ito na mabawasan ang mga kababayan natin na lumabas ng kanilang mga tahanan at isugal ang kanilang KALUSUGAN gayundin ay MAIBSAN ang TRAFFIC.
Kasalukuyan inaayos na natin ang isang sistema kung saan magbibigay po tayo ng pera (not government funds) para magsilbing petty cash o revolving fund ng mga tricycle drivers natin na walang pang abono sa mga ipapabili sa kanila ng kanilang potential customers.
Sa iba pang mga interested tricycle drivers, mag sabi lang po sa inyong opisyales o kay Olan Avendaño ng PTRB.
