As part of the PUV modernization program, the government has decided to give the city of Tacloban a fleet of 45 solar powered electronic jeepneys, or e-jeepneys, in order to cut down on waiting time when getting from one part of town to another.

Mentioned in a news report earlier on, it was said that these e-jeepneys will cater to those coming from the northern barangays of Tacloban, where most Yolanda survivors now live; as they have moved there from their previous residences as part of their local relocation program.

Previously, before the e-jeepneys were introduced, the residents of northern Tacloban had to wait for more than 30 minutes before the next jeepney would arrive—and that wasn’t during peak hours.

Certain government agencies are hoping that, through this program, the use of e-jeepneys would be more widely accepted by the commuting public, especially in areas such as Metro Manila.
