Hino showcases PUVs

Hino Motors Philippines, one of the pioneer participants of the government’s Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program, joined the first Modern PUV Caravan held at the Clark Economic Zone in Pampanga earlier today with the theme “Arangkada ng Pagbabago Tungo sa Kaunlaran.”

 The Modern PUV Caravan is a joint undertaking of the Department of Transportation, Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, Land Transportation Office and the Office of Transportation Cooperatives in cooperationa with the Development Bank of the Philippines, Landbank of the Philippines, various industry associations and vehicle manufacturers, including HMP.

Mark Richmond de Leon and HMP Consultant for Government Affairs Donato Baysa inside the Hino Eco PUV Class II jeepney during the modern PUV caravan kick-off in Pampanga.
 Around thirty legs of the modern PUV caravan are scheduled to be held nationwide until February 2020. Phase one of the caravan, which will run for the entire month of July until the first week of August, includes stopovers in Urdaneta City, Pangasinan; San Fernando City, La Union; Laoag City, Ilocos Norte; Tuguegarao City, Cagayan; Santiago, Isabela; Baguio City; Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija; and Marilao City, Bulacan.

HMP will be showcasing its PNS-compliant modern PUVs, Jeepney Class II (AC) and Jeepney Class III (AC), during the different legs of the caravan. These Euro 4-powered Hino jeepneys provide comfortable seating and are equipped with safety features such as a speed limiter, CCTV, GPS and a dashboard camera, which all ensure a better, safer commuting experience for both Filipino drivers and passengers.

 As the country’s only one-stop shop for sales, service and the customization of trucks and buses for many years now, Hino has a reputation for delivering premium quality, which commuters can also expect from its modern PUVs. Since last year, HMP has turned over more than 100 modern PUVs to several transport cooperatives in Taguig, Pateros, Makati, Quezon City and Iloilo.
