MANILA, Philippines — All vehicles are no longer allowed to enter the Manila North Cemetery starting Wednesday, October 30, until Saturday, November 2, Cemetery Chief Roselle Castañeda said Wednesday.

“Pero may mga e-trikes naman po na pwede sakyan papasok sa loob para sa mga PWD at elderly (But we offer free e-tricycle rides to persons with disabilities and the elderly),” Castañeda told INQUIRER.net.

The free rides are being offered as early as today (Wednesday) even to regular visitors since only about 1,000 have flocked to the public cemetery, Police Lieutenant Noel Villamor, chief of operations of Sta. Cruz Manila Station 3, said.
