Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) continues to support the nationwide Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program (PUVMP) as it recently held the Hyundai BiyaHenyo Caravan in Bicol.
In partnership with Hyundai Trucks and Buses Alabang, 30 local transport cooperative groups—or up to 150 members—attended the roadshow event at PROXY by The Oriental Albay Hotel. To solidify their commitment to the nationwide Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program (PUVMP), the concerned parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the acquisition of 450 units of the Hyundai Modern PUV.
On display were the Hyundai HD50S Modern PUV Class 2 and Class 3. Guests were later treated to a test ride and comprehensive product presentation of Class 2 Modern PUV.
“What matters most to us is the fact that the Hyundai Modern PUV is helping boost the economy of the Bicol region, and of every Philippine province, city, and municipality that it finds itself. It is a vehicle for connecting communities, moving people and products for major industries, showcasing the beauty of the regions, and, in so doing, it gives a boost to the quality of life of individuals and communities,” said HARI President and CEO Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo.
The signing came at the heels of the recent successful turnover of 15 units of Class 3 HD50S Modern PUVs to the Bulusan Transport Service Cooperative (BULTRASCO) last April in Sorsogon.
In 2020, a fleet of 23 Hyundai Modern PUVs was released to the Tabaco-Legazpi Transport Cooperative (TALETRANSCO) of Albay province.
Since its inception in 2017, HARI has turned over more than 500 Modern PUV units all over the country.
HARI launched BiyaHenyo at the start of the year to help transform the transport cooperatives into ‘smartrepreneurs’—or business-savvy owners and operators of Hyundai Modern PUVs. Since its kickoff, the roadshow attracted 80 local transport cooperatives from various key cities and provinces in the country.
