THE GENERAL Santos City government is holding a summit on Jan. 22 to tackle the transport modernization plan with representatives from the public utility vehicles (PUV) sector. “The transport system of GenSan is one of its most polarizing issues,” the city government said in the event invite posted on its Facebook page. Officers and members of Tricycle Operators and Drivers’ Associations (TODA) are urged to participate in the meeting, which will also be attended by Mayor Ronnel C. Rivera, councilors, and the General Santos City Transport Management Committee. “Specifically, the proliferation of tricycles within the city roads is among the problems that the current administration is trying to settle,” it said. City officials will present the new policies and the planned transport plan. “The dilemma between securing the livelihood of PUV drivers and the modernization of the transport system is the chief reason as to why there are a myriad of studies and consultations that have to be done… It is expected that this summit will yield fruitful results that would help finalize the transport plan of the city.”
