Surigao Norte gov leads blessing of 2 eco-friendly shuttle service

Governor Sol Matugas led recently the blessing of two eco-friendly tricycles (E-trike) to service not just the capitol employees but all Surigaonons, in going to and from the provincial capitol compound.

The lady governor said this is to provide convenience to everybody who will be transacting business with the provincial government. “This is the project of the provincial capitol to give convenience to everybody who will be transacting business with us because I know it’s hard to walk through the complex. It is so big.”

Gov. Matugas also revealed that after she was elected to office as the new governor this has always been the request of the capitol employees, “to provide a shuttle service for them.”
The said two Etrikes were purchased from Siargao Bank thru Islas Ecology Development Advocacy (ISDA Foundation) amounted to P150,000 each.

ISDA Executive Director Lou Vanessa Bauzon said the Etrike can accommodate eight passengers and is battery- powered which can recharge after six to eight hours use depending on the travel.
“It runs 70 to 80km. in just one charge and has no maintenance,” Bauzon added.
