The Department of Transportation’s (DOTr) Undersecretary for Road Thomas Orbos, Assistant Secretary Mark De Leon, and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) Chairman Martin Delgra III, and members of the DOTr Road Transport Group visited two local bodymakers for the government’s jeepney, trikes, and bus modernization program last week.
The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) last week unveiled the initial design of modern jeeps. The design can accommodate up to 22 passengers compared to the current 15 to 17-seater jeepneys.
The DTI also said current jeepneys do not pass international safety standards.
“To be honest about it, the current jeepney design cannot pass the safety requirements of the United Nations,” DTI Bureau of Product Standards head Assistant Secretary Ernesto Perez said.
