The Quezon City government partnered with electric company Meralco to install three charging stations for electronic tricycles in the city.
The new charging stations are strategically located in different parts of the city to cater to the growing number of e-trikes plying different routes.
These include the Batasan Hills Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association Terminal, Barangay Payatas Motorpool and at the Amoranto Sports Complex, where most of the e-trikes distributed by the city government are operating.
Mayor Joy Belmonte said, “These e-trikes complement our efforts to become a green city, which is one of our 14-point agenda. Through these, our e-trike drivers ferry our citizens while contributing to our environmental plans and goals.”
Meralco constructed the smart charging stations, including coin-operated charging pods and solar panels. Each charging station has four charging pods that can simultaneously accommodate eight e-trikes.
