HinoMotors Philippines (HMP), exclusive distributor of Hino trucks and buses in the Philippines, has recently turned over the first batch of modernized public utility vehicles (PUVs) for the Novaliches-Malinta Jeepney Transport Service Cooperative (NMJTSC) during a ceremony held in Valenzuela City.
HMP is one of the pioneer participants of the PUV Modernization program, a countrywide transformational initiative that will improve the transport welfare and safety of Filipino commuters. In support of the government’s jeepney modernization program, NMJTSC recently received a total of 23 modernized PUV units from HMP. Next month, Hino will deliver its second batch of 29 PUV units to fulfill the cooperative’s requirement. By the end of the year, a total of 52 Hino PUVs will ply the Novaliches-Malinta route.
Since 2018, HMP has turned over almost 400 modern PUV units to various transport cooperatives nationwide. It continues to forge partnerships with different transport cooperatives to make transport operations more efficient for Filipino drivers and commuters. In the next few months, HMP is set to turn over 58 units of Class III PUVs and 72 Class II PUVs to various transport cooperatives in the country.
HMP was granted the Certificate of Compliance by the Department of Transportation (DOTr) after passing the body dimension measurement standard for modernized jeepneys. These modern PUVs are likewise adherent to the Philippine National Standards (PNS) set by the government.
“As part of our commitment to deliver Total Support to the Filipino community, we continue to actively support the government’s jeepney modernization program for a safer and more comfortable public transportation system in the Philippines. We are honored to be part of this transformation and our partners can trust that we will work closely with relevant stakeholders to help elevate the commuting experience here in the country,” HMP Chairman Vicente T. Mills Jr. shared.
HMP has been manufacturing trucks and buses for more than 40 years now. As the company continues to grow and demands of customers evolve, Hino remains committed to providing Filipinos with transportation solutions that address their needs without compromising the welfare of drivers and their cooperatives.
