“Nagdadasal din po ako na ‘wag pigilan ng nasyonal na pamahalaam ang pag-operate ng mga tricycle,” the mayor wrote in his Facebook post.

(I am also praying that the national government will not stop tricycle operations.)

“Pano na po ang mangyayari kung hindi makasakay ang mga HEALTH WORKERS at LIBO-LIBONG MGA PASYENTE NA NANGANGAILANGAN NG TREATMENT?” he added.

(What would happen if health workers will not reach their hospitals as well as the thousands of patients who need treatment?)

Mayor Sotto underscored that not allowing tricycles to operate will cause “potential damage to public health and a possible loss of lives.”

The Pasig mayor also noted that during emergency situations, tricycles are needed especially in narrow streets.

He admitted that free rides offered by the Pasig City government are not enough.
