Bikes are allowed back onboard pump boats from Iloilo City going to Guimaras and vice versa.
Mayor Jerry Treñas welcomed the decision following a discussion with Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) Regional Office 6 at City Hall Monday.
Treñas sought clarification from MARINA 6 after reports of “authorities prohibiting bikes on pump boats.”
“The meeting with MARINA went well. Vice Mayor Jeffrey Ganzon and I are both very happy that bikes will now be allowed on pump boats,” the mayor stressed.
Both city and island officials earlier expressed disappointment because they were not consulted regarding the supposed policy. (Iloilo City PIO)
