BACOOR CITY, Cavite - The initiative came about after guidelines for the operations of additional businesses that will open on June 1, 2020 were established in the first ever webinar for the Bacoor Economic Sector held May 29, 2020.

Bacoor Public Employment Services Office (PESO) head Dr. Abraham De Castro facilitated the program aimed to generate livelihood for the tricycle drivers in the city by converting their tricycles into single motorcycles for the use in delivery services that would somehow augment their limited income due to the GCQ safety protocols.

Likewise, the need for the delivery of basic essentials such as food, medicines and other needs for the house during this state of health emergency crisis emphasized the need to maximize the business of 'delivery services.'

"Our fellow Bacooreños in the transportation sector are one of the most affected by the community quarantine. They are making money and relying on their daily trips so it had been very difficult for them with almost three months of not getting out to work," stated Mayor Lani Revilla.

"We decided to have an agreement with delivery services like foodpanda because this way, we're hitting three birds with one stone. First, we helped the Bacooreños stay safe at home, secondly, we provided extra services for entrepreneurs and third, we provided jobs for our tricycle drivers," justified the mayor.

Dr. De Castro shared that, "Bacoor is the first city in all of CALABARZON to enter into this agreement with a private sector in the delivery service from which 150 drivers will benefit from."

Foodpanda.ph Managing Director Daniel Marogy estimated the average income that could be earned from the delivery services is about P25,000.00 a month, a very big help for a driver with a family to support.

The city government of Bacoor also signed MOA with Joyride and Happy Move, a transport delivery service company that would also give Bacoor tricycle drivers the opportunity to work as 'biker partners' of the aforementioned company.

JoyRide and Happy Move President Neil Sherwyn Uy, Bacoor PESO head Dr. Abraham De Castro, Bacoor Legal Affairs Office Head Atty. Bernadette Carrasco, CIO Head Andrianne Mark Ng, and representatives of Bacoor TODA and Bacoor Traffic Management Division (BTMD) were present during the MOA signing.
