E-bikes, e-trikes, tricycles ban on NCR national roads starting April 15 – MMDA

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced on Monday that the ban on e-bikes on major roads in the National Capital Region (NCR) will commence from April 15 onwards.

According to MMDA Chair Romando Artes, this enforcement isn't new but rather a response to the rising incidents of accidents and violations of traffic rules involving e-bikes. Artes emphasized the need for proactive measures rather than waiting for the situation to escalate further.

Data from the MMDA Road Safety Unit revealed a significant increase in e-bike, e-trike, and e-scooter-related road accidents in Metro Manila, with 907 incidents recorded in 2023 compared to 309 in 2019.

Violators will face a fine of PHP2,500, and their vehicles will be impounded if they fail to present a valid driver's license upon apprehension, Artes stated.

The MMDA plans to release the implementing rules and regulations (IRR) before April 15 to allow for an information campaign, considering feedback and suggestions from stakeholders.

According to the MMDA, the national roads covered by the ban are the following:

C2: Pres. Quirino Avenue
C3: Araneta Avenue
C5: Katipunan/CP Garcia
C6: Southeast Metro Manila Expressway

Additionally, MMDA Regulation No. 24-022 will prohibit e-trikes, tricycles, pedicabs, pushcarts, and "kuligligs" from using national roads, circumferential, and radial roads in the NCR. The ban will be enforced on roads under the MMDA's jurisdiction in the NCR.
