This morning, Mayor Eric L. Olivarez supervised the deployment of vehicles for the free ride service provided by the local government for commuters. The free ride service is part of the mayor's care for commuters amid a week-long transport strike by various transport groups from March 6 to 12, 2023.

According to Mayor Eric, more than 60 government vehicles are currently plying the major roads in the city, including Dr. Arcadio Santos Avenue, East and West Service Road, Quirino Avenue, Baclaran, and Kabihasnan. In addition, the mayor instructed the use of e-trikes from homeowners associations to transport passengers to their workplaces and destinations, as well as tricycles.

The police and traffic enforcers are also on standby to provide assistance to passengers and ensure safety on major roads, said Mayor Eric.


District 1 Representative Edwin L. Olivarez, City Administrator Atty. Voltaire dela Cruz, Atty. Rommel Frias, Traffic and Parking Management Office OIC Mr. Rey Murillo, PSSD-CSU OIC Mr. Nazor V. Rogacion, City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office Head Dr. Teodoro B. Gonzales Jr., Tricycle Regulatory Office OIC Mr. Rodolfo L. Avila, and City Agriculture Office OIC Ms. Amie Hernandez were among those who joined Mayor Eric in inspecting the vehicles for the free ride service.

The free ride service provided by the local government aims to ease the burden of commuters during the transport strike and ensure their safe and convenient travel around the city. The mayor hopes that this initiative will help alleviate the impact of the transport strike on the daily lives of the people of Parañaque.
