Bumibyahe pa ba ang mga e-jeepney dito sa Makati? Wala na kasi ako nakikita ngayon nyan dito sa Dela Rosa.

Kulang pa sa tests ang e-jeepney. I don't think they've established how durable the batteries are as well as the motor. I did hear from a friend that they are rolling out the locally assembled ones. Motor na lang yata ang imported from China.

Those look like delivery trucks that were just modified to fit the "jeepney" purpose. I still like the classic look of what a Jeepney should really look like.

Jeepney bawal na sa EDSA!
Ni Doris Franche (Pilipino Star Ngayon) Updated August 17, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - Wala nang atrasan ang pagpapatupad ng “phase–out“ sa lahat ng pampasaherong jeep na bumibiyahe sa kahabaan ng Edsa sa sandaling ma gawa na ang LRT 1 at MRT 3 link sa Enero 2010.

Ito ang tiniyak ni LTFRB Chairman Alberto Suansing sa ginanap na Balitaan sa Tinapayan kasabay ng pahayag na maging ang mga bus na bumibiyahe dito ay ma babawasan na rin.

Ayon kay Suansing panahon pa man ni dating Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos ay mahigpit nang ipinagbabawal ang mga pampublikong jeep sa EDSA at kapag naisara na ang “closing loop” ng LRT at MRT ay hindi na kaka ilanganin ang PUJ sa Edsa.

Sa buwan naman ng Disyembre inaasahang ipakikita sa publiko ang “dry run” ng mga tren at malamang na masa sakyan na ito ng publiko sa Enero 2010.

Gayunman, umaasa si Roberto Martin, presi dente ng Pasang Masda, na pagbibig yan pa rin ng LTFRB ang pananatili ng mga PUJ sa ilang bahagi ng EDSA partikular na ang biya heng Balinta wak-Monu*mento dahil na rin sa pub liko na na mi mili sa Balin tawak mar ket dahil bawal na mang isakay sa mga aircon dition bus ang mga “wet goods’.

Sinabi naman ni Suan sing na pag-aaralan nila ang sitwasyon bagama’t na nindigan ito na walang dapat na pumapasadang PUJ sa Edsa.

By all means modernize the jeepney. It still has a big role in Philippine Public Transport. Make sure it follows all laws (traffic regulations and environmental in particular) and fit it to the correct routes (No routes served by mass transit lines and those which are better served by buses). Short feeder routes should do the trick bigger pay for them and smaller number per route should allow them to maintain the vehicles so they can pass muster.
