Manila, Philippines, 18 November 2019 – Hino Motors Philippines (HMP), one of the pioneer participants of the PUV program, turned over 30 modern jeepney units to the Mandaluyong Transport Service Cooperative in a ceremony held at the Philippine Red Cross Function Hall in Mandaluyong City.
A one-stop-shop for trucks and buses, Hino manufactures its own lineup of PUVs compliant with Philippine National Standards (PNS) set by the government to promote safety and ensure driving and riding efficiency. This initial batch of PUV units turned over by Hino U.N. Avenue-Manila to the Mandaluyong TSC consists of Class II 4-wheeler air-conditioned modern jeepneys.
“It is our honor to be part of this transformation in Philippine transportation and we are grateful to be the preferred partner of the Mandaluyong Transport Service Cooperative. This is only the first batch of units that we are providing them, and we are certainly looking forward to and gearing up for more. We are committed to giving them the Total Support that Hino has always been known for,” Hino U.N. Avenue President and CEO Mr. Leoncio Lei Yee Jr. said.
Hino is keen to partner with more transport cooperatives in support of the country’s PUV modernization program. As of now, more than 16 cooperatives are already using the Hino modern jeepneys to ply various routes nationwide.
