Ive watched the news (gensan tvpatrol) about the new design of tricycle that the city council is proposing.
I do have same sentiments with the tricycle drivers with regards to the new design.
The proposed design is a box type compared to the existing one which is rounded.
See picture below:

I have traveled the whole country thru my ever reliable motorcycle, you name it from aparri to samar down
to gensan. In those travels i had, ive seen the different designs of tricycle in every places and I still love
the existing tricycle design that we have here in Gensan.
Gensan has the best tricycle design for me. Its smooth, curve sides, attractive looking. But i do agree
that some tricycles are too small, its because we dont have standard sizing of the tricycles.
So making the tricycle a bit wider is good making it comfortable to the riding public.
The proposed design by the city council i believe does not fit to Gensans slogan of “Magandang Gensan”
I do suggest that the city council thru transportation chairmain councilor remus claro will initiate a
Gensan Tricycle Design Contest that the winner will be chosen by the public and different sectors,
Tricycle Drivers, Operators Students, riding public.
The tricycle design contest should be open to anyone that can design the best tricycle that will fit with
our slogan and will attract tourism in our area. We have lots of talented generals here…
If bangkok has famous tuk-tuk tricycle,
its high time for Gensan to have a best tricycle design in the Philippines.
That can be achieved by asking our Generals to design a tricycle for us.
if you have design, please do let me know… i will publish it here…
