In Valenzuela, the e-trikes were also used as market-on-wheels.

LGUs in Laguna, such as Bay, Biñan, and Los Baños have rolled out a total of 120 e-trikes as free service for front-liners.

A total of 200 e-trikes in Carmona City were deployed to help the LGUs serve the front-liners, while 120 e-trikes are now utilized by Echague, Isabela, and 20 e-trikes in Tuguegarao City.
