The City Government of Taguig has granted free franchises to tricycle drivers and operators of EMBO (enlisted men's barangay) after a decade of waiting.

1,300 tricycle units owned by various EMBO tricycle operators and drivers associations (TODA) were awarded free franchises on May 23, 2024, at the Benigno "Ninoy" S. Aquino High School in Barangay Comembo, Taguig City.

In a statement by Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano, she emphasized the importance of legal operations.

"What the City of Taguig provides you is not just an ordinary franchise, but also trust - and we know as Filipinos that trust is priceless. Let us abide by the laws and regulations and always prioritize the safety of our passengers. Let us promise to be responsible members of our associations."

The TODAs expressed their gratitude to the City Government of Taguig, especially since their franchise was free.
