Ok. So ano nga ba ang PUV Modernization?
Hindi lang to jeep. Kasama dito ang Bus, Public Utility Vans at ang paborito mong jeep.
Bago tayo lumalim, ipapaalala ko lang na normal sa tao na matakot sa CHANGE. Hindi yung sukli, kundi yung pagbabago.
Takot kang lumipat sa ibang trabaho kahit hindi ka na naggrogrow sa kompanya mo dahil feeling secured ka na.
Takot kang lumipat sa ibang bahay dahil sanay ka na sa paligid mo at mahihirapan kang maglipat ng mga gamit.
Takot kang kunin yung course mo dahil alam mong maliit yung kita.
Nakakalimot ang iba sa sinabi Heraclitus na “The only thing that is constant is change.”
Sinong nakabasa na ng “Who Moved My Cheese?” ni Dr. Spencer Johnson? Isa ito sa pinakamalaking keso na pwede mong ma-experience sa buhay mo.
Alam kong alam mo na nalubog ang Pilipinas sa kumunoy pagdating sa pag-unlad at pagbabago. Dahil sa sobrang kalayaan, masyadong narelax at nagpabaya na parang kunehong naunahan pa ng pagong sa karera. At ngayong dumating na ang pagbabago (PUV Moderization), maririnig mo ang kabi-kabilang angal. Ops ops ops. Normal lang yan. Takot nga kasi sa pagbabago.
Sabi nga ni Sony Bill Williams, “If you go about trying to please everyone, there’s going to be endless struggles.”
Sakto. Hindi mo mapapasaya ang lahat pero kailangan may gawin para umabante ang Pilipinas.
Sabi nila, selfish daw dahil paano naman daw ang mga driver. Ang tanong, paano naman ang mga pasahero? Paano ang karamihan at majority?
Ayon sa Daily Inquirer, Philippine Daily Inquirer / 01:49 AM March 10, 2017
“According to the latest Road Crash Statistics Report of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority’s Metro Manila Accident Recording and Analysis System, there were 11,157 road accidents in the National Capital Region in 2016 that involved jeepneys. Of this figure, 44 were fatal; 1,922 resulted in nonfatal injuries while 99,191 resulted in damage to property. —Marielle Medina, Inquirer Research”

Maraming sanhi ang aksidente sa mga jeep.
- Nagmamadali. Agawan sa pasahero para makapag-boundary.
- Over speeding para makaikot ulit at makarami ng biyahe.
- Hindi maintained ang jeep. Pudpod ang gulong, sablay ang preno at di makontrol na manibela.
- Nakakatulog yung driver sa sobrang pagod dahil 15 hours dire-diretso sa biyahe.
- marami pang iba
Teka, ano ba ang pinakamahalaga sayo? Safety o yung extrang dalawang piso sa bulsa mo? Nakatipid ka nga ng 2,000 pesos kada taon, patay naman ang anak mo sa aksidente, e di wala rin.
Magkakaroon ng SPEED LIMITER ang mga jeep at hindi sila pwede humarabas tuwing madaling araw. Magkakaroon ng sweldo ang mga driver. Kahit lima lang ang pasahero nila kada biyahe o kung punuan man ay kikita pa rin sila. Hindi ba seguridad iyon para sa kanila? Putik, kung driver ka tapos natrapik ka, kumikita ka kahit nasa EDSA ka kahit nasa trapik ka.
Wag kang magtampo dahil ganyan ang kalakaran sa maraming bansa sa mahabang panahon. 1st world country nga yan ang inaapply sa lipunan nila tapos ikaw ayaw mo? Gusto mong habang buhay kang nasa 3rd world country?
Isipin mo yung driver na 8-10 hours na lang kung magtrabaho at mabubuhay pa rin ang pamilya niya. Less sa sakit at more time sa pamilya.
Merong 2 to 3 years na transition period na ibibigay para makalipat sila at magkaroon ng sapat na panahon at paghahanda.
14 BAGAY NA DAPAT MONG MALAMAN TUNGKOL SA PUBLIC UTILITY VEHICLE (PUV) MODERNIZATION PROGRAM
1. What are the Omnibus Franchising Guidelines for?
• These are new guidelines for issuing public transportation franchises which aim to improve land public transport in the Philippines.
• Through these guidelines, public transport services will be provided in accordance with the LGUs’ public transport plans where routes are based on passenger demands and the existing road network.
• These guidelines will also ensure that approved franchises have safe, comfortable, and environmentally sustainable vehicles.
• With the Omnibus Franchising Guidelines, public transport franchises will be in accordance with Local Public Transport Plans instead of the current situation where public transport franchises are dependent on route proposals of operators
2. Why is there a need for PUV Modernization?
• Most Public Utility Vehicles on the road are not safe, not comfortable, and produce significant amounts of air pollution. For instance, riding through the back of jeepneys presents safety hazards for passengers. Exhaust from old and poorly maintained vehicles is a health threat not just for users, but for drivers and the public as a whole.
• By implementing national standards and modernizing the current fleet, DOTr aims to make public transport safe and enjoyable, reduce air pollution, and move more people efficiently.
• The PUV Modernization Program aims to implement a transition from current vehicles to high-quality public transit requisites such as:
o Higher Capacity vehicles
o Low-emission vehicles
o Fleet consolidation
o Reformed business model
o IT System (GPS, CCTVs, etc)
3. What are the different phases of PUV Modernization?
• Regulatory Reform (Omnibus Franchising Guidelines)
o New Jeepney Vehicle Standard
• Route Rationalization
• Fleet Consolidation
• Financing for PUJ Refleeting
o Guarantee Fund
o Assistance on Scrappage Program
o Incentives for Manufacturers (CARS Program)
• Social Support Mechanism
• Communication Strategy
4. What is the proposed phasing of implementation?
• Q4 2017 Pilot program in Metro Manila
• 2018 – 2019 Metro Manila, Metro Cebu, Metro Davao
• 2019 – 2020 Highly Urbanized Cities, Rest of the Country
5. How will these programs benefit the public?
• Commuters will have easier access to public transport due to an expanded network that connects different routes and establishments.
• Riding public transport will also be more reliable.
• Travel times may also decrease due to routes becoming optimized. Vehicles will be more comfortable, spacious, clean, and safe.
6. How will these programs benefit public transport drivers?
• Drivers will have the security of monthly salary and benefits. Drivers will have reduced working hours, making it safer for both the driver and the passengers.
• Due to modernized vehicle specifications, drivers will also be less exposed to air pollution and other health hazards.
7. How will these programs benefit public transport operators?
• Improvements in public transport will increase ridership, while reducing traffic congestion. As a result, operators will be able to accept more passengers, without their vehicles getting stuck in traffic.
• Furthermore, organizing operators will reduce costs by sharing services such as cleaning, repairs, maintenance, and fleet management. It will also be easier for operators to obtain fuel and spare parts at discounted rates.
8. How will this be enacted?
• These programs require collaboration among all involved parties to ensure proper and inclusive implementation. Government agencies will work together to facilitate this initiative from preparation, to transition, and to implementation.
• Through appropriate cooperation from industry stakeholders and commuters, these programs will give our country a well-integrated, efficient, safe, and sustainable public transport network that all citizens can benefit from.
9. What will happen to old jeepneys? Icon of jeepney?
• The icon of the jeepney is not the physical shape of the vehicle, but the creative spirit of the Filipino to adapt to changing needs. Although safety guidelines may significantly change the look of jeepneys, these improvements are necessary to make public transport, particularly jeepneys, more comfortable, clean, and safe.
10. What will happen to existing franchises?
• Existing franchises will continue to operate for the next 2 to 3 years upon issuance of the guidelines. During and after the transition period, operators can apply to operate new or modified routes introduced by local governments in their local public transport plans.
11. Are “colorum” vehicles excluded?
• When the Omnibus Franchising Guidelines are released, the moratorium on issuing franchises will be lifted and even colorum vehicles will be given the chance to apply for franchises.
12. Is PUV Modernization anti-poor?
• No, it is not. DOTr realizes that modernization requires high capital costs, so it is coordinating with the DOF, DTI and other financial institutions in designing programs that will give manufacturers and operators better access to credit.
• Driver support programs in the form of trainings and accreditation will improve the quality of public transport, enhance the dignity and professionalism of drivers, and will encourage more people to use public transport.
• Small operators can consolidate to pool resources, meet minimum credit requirements, and share the cost of operations and maintenance.
13. Will jeepneys be phased out?
• No. Jeepneys will not be phased out but instead modernized to provide better services to commuters.
• The PUV modernization program not only involves modern vehicles but also pushes for the establishment of fleet management systems so that vehicles can be deployed efficiently.
14. Will modernization kill local manufacturers?
• DOTr is only providing basic guidelines for vehicles to ensure that quality public transportation is provided. It does not, in any way, favor any company and is looking at ways to make the transition as easy as possible for manufacturers.
