E-Jeepney in the Philippines – Photos,Route,Fare
The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) issued the first franchise of the electric public utility jeepney to the eJeepney Transport Corporation. Starting March 1,2012, passengers will pay P8.00 for the first kilometer and an additional P1.45 per succeeding kilometer.
As you can notice, the fare is the same with the diesel-powered jeepneys. However, the fare may still drop because it is not using any amount of gasoline.
