Hyundai Asia Resources Inc., the official Philippine distributor of the Korean auto brand, and Petron Corp., the country’s largest oil company, signed a partnership agreement to support the Department of Transportation’s Libreng Sakay program.
“With Petron as our partner, expect our Ligtas Biyahe vehicles to be at optimal service for our front liners as we move towards a better normal. This cements our commitment to provide the riding public vehicles that are safe and convenient in these challenging times,” said HARI president and chief executive Maria Fe Perez-Agudo.
Libreng Sakay ensures continued mobility for health workers and frontliners, with 20 defined routes and designated drop-off and pick-up points for medical workers.
HARI turned over three Covid-ready vehicles in May to serve the DOTr program. Hyundai developed and produced the lineup based on its best-selling H-100 Shuttle, HD36 Shuttle and modern jeepney HD50S Class 2.
