Hino Motors Philippines (HMP), an active participant in the government’s Public Utility Vehicle (PUV) Modernization Program, was granted by the Department of Transportation (DOTr) the Certificate of Compliance (CoC) for its Hino Eco Class PUV units for Class 2 and Class 3 variants.

The Philippine National Standards (PNS) evaluated PUV units of manufacturers who complied to its body dimension measurement requirement required by the local government for the modernized jeepneys which are upgraded in terms of innovation, comfort, and security.

“Hino has been part of the PUV Modernization Program since its planning stages and we will continue to actively support the initiative until it is fully realized. As we are one with the government’s aim of creating a safer, more comfortable public transport system for Filipinos, Hino will not only be supplying PUV units to its partners and stakeholders but will also be assisting them through the entire transition from individual operators to organizational cooperative systems, even helping them with bank loan applications and aftersales training and fleet maintenance support,” HMP Chairman Vicente T. Mills Jr. shares.

Hino Modern Jeepneys Deliver Total Support
Drawing from years of experience being the exclusive distributor of Hino trucks and buses in the country and the only local one-stop shop offering trucks and buses and services from engine to body to spare parts nationwide, HMP is confident the Class II and III Hino modern jeepneys will elevate the driving and commuting experience of every Filipino driver and passenger. Hino has turned over close to 400 modern PUV units to various transport cooperatives in Manila, Quezon City, Quezon province, etc.

These Hino modern jeepneys are Euro 4-compliant and air-conditioned. With side-facing seats similar to the layout of traditional jeepneys, these modern units can accommodate a total of 26 passengers with 19 seated and 7 standing. These modernized jeepneys are compliant with all the technical requirements set by the Bureau of Philippine Standards and feature a speed limiter, GPS, in-vehicle CCTV, electronic Beep card system and a dashboard-mounted camera to guarantee a safer and more convenient ride.

“Hino’s international reputation of creating vehicles of high quality and great value is the same foundation on which our modern PUV models are built on. We are positive that with our vehicles and our commitment to deliver Total Support, we will be able to contribute to creating a modern, safer and more sustainable transportation system in the Philippines,” HMP President Mitsuharu Tabata says.

HMP is continuously forging partnerships with more transport cooperatives in line with its promise of providing a 360-degree support package to every driver, fleet owner, cooperative member and passenger.

Anticipating rising demand for modern PUVs to increase in light of the modernization program, the company is boosting its manufacturing capability for modern jeepneys.
