An additional 21 modernized jeepneys will soon ply the major routes in this province.

Nasrudin Talipasan, regional director of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), said on Friday three transport service cooperatives — the Kapampangan Transport Service Cooperative, Lubao Transport Service Cooperative and Guagua/ Betis/ Bacolor Transport Service Cooperative — will launch the 21 air-conditioned public utility jeepneys (PUJs) at the City Transport Terminal Phase 2 in Barangay San Juan here on Nov. 26.

Talipasan said the new modernized jeepneys will ply the routes of Angeles City – San Fernando via McArthur Highway; City of San Fernando – San Isidro; Lubao – City of San Fernando via Bacolor; Lubao – Guagua; City of San Fernando – Sasmuan via Guagua; Guagua – SM City Pampanga/Robinsons Starmills via OG Road; and Guagua – SM City Pampanga/Robinsons Starmills via Bacolor.

He thanked the transport service cooperatives for continuously supporting the government’s PUV modernization program (PUVMP)

“Layunin ng mga nasabing kooperatiba na palawakin pa ang bilang ng mga modernong pampublikong sasakyan sa probinsya ng Pampanga (The said cooperatives aim to expand the number of modern public vehicles in the province of Pampanga),” he said in a social media post.

Talipasan said the modern PUJs are environment-friendly, safe, secure and comfortable and give due consideration to persons with disabilities (PWDs).

He said more commuters would be able to enjoy riding air-conditioned, spacious, safe and convenient modernized PUJs.

He also assured that the LTFRB will continue to provide technical assistance to the transport service cooperatives in the province.

The three transport service cooperatives, together with the One Mexico Prime Transport Service Cooperative, first launched 12 modernized jeepneys last March 16. (PNA)
