Kidapawan City Tricycle Franchising Regulatory Board (CTFRB) said that it is mandatory that all the tricycle operators should secure insurance for their passengers starting this year.
“Layun nito na ma-protektahan ang mga pasahero kung sakaling maaksidente ang kanilang sinasakyan na tricycle habang bumibyahe,” the City Information Office (CIO) said.
The insurance is only one of the requirements in the renewal of the permit to operate by the tricycle operators or drivers.
The CTFRB also reminded that the deadline for the seminar of the tricycle owners and drivers will be on January 15.
So far, it said that more than 700 operators and drivers have yet to undergo the seminar.
There are about 3,500 legitimate tricycle operators in Kidapawan.
