Mendez to regulate tricycle fare



Mendez to regulate tricycle fare

Mendez’s fourth-class, upland town of Cavite has released a new ordinance to regulate the base fare of tricycles, hoping to discourage “negotiated rates” and the use of “colorum”, or unlicensed, motor vehicles.

The town, famous for its bulalo (beef bone marrow stew) and home to “spill-over” residents of neighboring tourist site Tagaytay, will strictly enforce Ordinance No. 2018-142, or “An Ordinance Amending Provisions of Ordinance 2011-110 Regulating the Fare of Tricycle Operating Within the Municipality of Mendez-Nuñez”.

The municipal legislative council approved the ordinance last Aug. 24 but it was only implemented recently “due to compliance with the required period for public notice,” council secretary, David Ramos, said Friday.

“The new regulation is a product of months of public consultations and hearings. It is a win-win resolve for both tricycle commuters and local TODA (Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association), after hearing all parties’ concerns,” Ramos said.

The Sanggguniang Bayan (local legislative council) has distributed list sheets of the amended fares, to be displayed in all tricycles plying the town.

Base fare starts at PHP10 (regular fare), less PHP2 for every senior citizen, persons with disabilities (PWDs), and students.

Penalties for violators range from PHP300 to PHP500 for first offense, PHP500 to PHP1,000 for second offense, and PHP1,000 or imprisonment of five days to 30 days, or both, at the discretion of the court, for third offense.

Subsequent violation shall result in the cancelation of the franchise.

The new ordinance supersedes and modifies all ordinances that are inconsistent with it, either in part or in full. (Gladys Pino)

    Mendez is not known for bulalo. I know because I am a native Mendezeño. It is the neighboring Tagaytay that is known for that delicious recipe. We, Mendezeños, go there for bulalo and other fine Filipino foods.
