Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) presented its new PUV Class 2 design to the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) last April 28.
Unlike the previous design, the new Isuzu PUV now has two side doors for the driver and front passenger—just like the old jeepneys. Aligned with the updated Philippine National Standard Guidelines for Class 2 PUV, the new redesigned panoramic windows, cushioned seats, and new luggage compartments are all designed for the convenience of passengers.
Other features include a GPS unit, automated payment system, built-in monitor, and digital signboards.
Witnessing the unveiling of the new PUV Class 2 design were DOTr Secretary Jaime Bautista, LTFRB Chairman Atty. Teofilo Guadiz III, CESE LTFRB Regional Director II – NCR Atty. Zona Russet Tamayo, and Pasang Masda Jeepney Transport Service Corp. President Roberto “Ka-Obet” Martin. Also in attendance were Isuzu Philippines executives, numerous transport cooperatives, suppliers, and bank partners.
With IPC’s 48 outlets nationwide—all capable of servicing light to heavy-duty trucks and nationwide parts availability—transport cooperatives will not have to worry about vehicle maintenance and operation downtime.
