Free shuttle services for health workers and frontliners are now operational in Metro Manila through a partnership with Department of Transportation (DOTr) and Hino Motors Philippines.

Since the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine for Luzon, public transportation has been suspended in the entire Luzon island. To ease the commute of these modern-day heroes, free PUV rides have been made operational daily until from 8AM to 5PM. The commuters only have to present their IDs for proper identification.

The shuttle services prioritize health workers and frontliners, but citizens of the city who need to go to the hospital or other establishments for basic necessities may also ride the shuttle as long as they present their quarantine pass.

To comply with the enhanced community quarantine guidelines, preventive measures against COVID-19 are implemented inside the PUVs such as social distancing, basic alcohol sanitization and free face masks for passengers. The PUV units also undergo disinfection before and after deployment.

Hino and DOTr recognize the important contribution of healthcare professionals in battling COVID-19. “We thank and sympathize with our health workers and frontliners. _ _We stand-by our corporate mission of making the world a better place to live – by helping people and goods get where they need to go―safely, economically and with environmental responsibility. Through this simple effort, we hope that our frontliners would know that they are not alone in this fight – that we from Hino and the DOTr are with them,” shares Hino Chairman Vicente T. Mills Jr.

In line with the company’s mission of mobilizing innovations to promote the best interest and well-being of its stakeholders, Hino is continuously working with DOTr to provide safe and reliable transportation support to the most vulnerable.
