Today, October 12 different designs of “modern jeepneys” based on the design prescribed by the government were showcased at the 1st Philippine Auto Parts Expo (PhilAPEX).
“These prototype vehicles were shown as proof that the PUV Modernization Program of the government is moving, on track, and will soon serve its purpose of providing Filipinos a better, more efficient, eco-friendly, safe, and dignified commuting experience,” the Department of Transportation said.
DOTr said the expo was conducted in partnership with Philippine Board of Investments (BOI) an attached agency of Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and various vehicle manufacturers.
PhilAPEX aims to showcase the talents and potentials of local manufacturers.
PhilAPEX also aims to get feedback from the public as to how their prototype designs may be improved so as to fit the preferences of the riding public without sacrificing global standards.
