Cabanatuan supports DOE's E-Trike Design ContestCABANATUAN CITY, Nueva Ecija, Jan. 22 (PIA) -- The City Government of Cabanatuan expressed support to the Department of Energy’s Electronic Tricycle or E- Trike design contest.
City Administrator Roy Balagtas said the City Government will help in disseminating the information about the contest.
Balagtas believes that E-trikes will not only benefit the environment but also motorists as well.
He said E-Trike will provide an alternative form of transportation that limits the use of gasoline and other petroleum products as transport fuel, considering the continuous spike of prices of crude products.
Balagtas added that DOE should enlist the aid of local government units to promote the contest.
Cabanatuan is recognized as the Tricycle Capital of the Philippines. There are approximately 13, 500 authorized units running in and out of the city. (WLB/CN PIA-3)
