500 trike driver gagawing FoodPanda rider

By: - 05/22/2020

PUMASOK sa isang partnership ang Quezon City government at FoodPanda upang mabigyan ng pagkakakitaan ang mga tricycle driver sa lungsod.

Inilungsad ang pandaTODA matapos ang kasunduang pinirmahan kanina.

Sa ilalim ng programa ang kukunin ng FoodPanda ang mga tricycle driver at sasanayin ang mga ito.

Bibigyan ang mga ito ng uniporme at thermo bag na magagamit sa kanilang paghahatid ng pagkain. Tatagal ang programa ng tatlong buwan at matapos ito ay magkakaroon ng opsyon ang driver na umalis o magpatuloy.

“We are fortunate for this partnership with FoodPanda as this will help alleviate the situation of our tricycle drivers whose livelihoods were affected by the pandemic. They will have sustainable income because there is a growing demand for food delivery services from people at home,” ani Mayor Joy Belmonte.

Ang Task Force for Transport and Traffic Management ng Tricycle Regulation Division ang magbibgay sa FoodPanda ng listahan ng mga driver na pumasa sa kanilang kuwalipikasyon. Aabot sa 500 tricycle driver ang kukunin.

“As the threat of the virus continues, people would want to keep staying at home as much as possible to minimize the risks to their health and lives. So we want to make sure that the tricycle drivers the City endorsed are well able and qualified to safely deliver foodpanda’s service to its customers.” ani Mona Yap, OIC ng Small Business and Cooperatives Development and Promotions Office na siyang nag-ayos sa partnership.

Ito na ang ikatlong siyudad sa Metro Manila kung saan nakipag-partnership ang FoodPanda.

“ We are glad that many have seen the value of our project and approached us with a request to be our next pandaTODA partners. Our intent is to accommodate as many tricycle drivers as our project can,” ani Daniel Marogy, foodpanda Philippines’ Managing Director.

“So even as the NCR came under Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) last May 16 that allowed as much as 50% of tricycles to operate again in each city, our project will continue to expand and help some of the other 50% tricycle drivers who still can not earn a living.”
