Fuel Efficient Jeeps Start Transport Operations - Here's How To Get One or Apply as Driver

The Philippine government's Jeepney Modernization program has introduced a slew of energy efficient and electric jeepneys. The good news - some have started plying roads in Quezon City and other metros across the country officially! While the early routes for e-jeeps and fuel efficient jeeps were merely test routes, the LTFRB are now opening franchise for these energy efficient public transports.  The BEEP - or "Bagong Jeeps" - were introduced under an initiative led by transport group "Kilusan sa Pagbabago ng Industriya ng Transportasyon" (Kapit).  The bright blue BEEPs were acquired by their new owners through a loan from the Development Bank of the Philippines, which can be paid back in seven years. The deal has new BEEP owners turning over their old jeeps for these new Euro 4 compliant jeeps with emissions well below the standard.  The government aims to eventually phase out smoke emitting public utility transports that are 15 years old or older, in a bid to modernize the Philippines' transport sector. There are currently about 250,000 registered jeepneys in the country. Among the aim is to introduce 10,000 electric jeepneys within the next three years. Currently, among the number of newly deployed BEEPs, it's not clear how many of them are electric.  KAPIT Chairman Vigor Mendoza II said it is a good move from the government in ensuring the safety and protection of the riding public. The group said several Beeps jeepneys are already plying in Quezon City, Cagayan de Oro, Tarlac City, Baguio City and Cebu City.  These BEEP Jeeps have GPS so the operator can do strict monitoring of the BEEP's speed and route. While previous designs say they will have televisions, I have yet to see one that has a TV inside. But CCTV and dashcam are installed for safety. They also have a fire extinguisher inside each unit, something you will rarely find in old jeeps. The LTFRB said modernized PUVs will soon have Internet connection too. BEEP cards, for e-payments will also be incorporated.  The BEEPs are Euro 4 compliant, meaning they are environment-friendly and fuel efficient. This means the new e-jeeps follow a world standard set in 2008-2010 while many of the old jeeps we are used to have standards well before the 90's - that's about 30 years ago or more!  A standard BEEP has a capacity of 25 persons, and is more spacious than the traditional jeep.  So how do you get one of these cool rides? KAPIT Chairman Mendoza explains the requirements.  1. An operator has to be a member of a transport association. They will have to sign a Management Contract, allowing the transport association management of the vehicle for franchise purposes. If the operator has an old jeepney unit, he has to retire it. It is unclear if this program is allowed for new operators.  2. The official price for these new units are 1.4 Million for the non air-conditioned BEEPS and P1.6 Million for the air-conditioned BEEPs. But the operator does not need to shell out money!  3. KAPIT will actually provide the initial capital for the downpayment or guarantee in lieu of. They will also assist with the banking requirements.  4. The monthly amortization of the air-conditioned BEEP is P17,000 per month. Each unit can service up to 600 passengers per day.  Are they good for Drivers? Under the transport association, the BEEPs are good for drivers too. Unlike in the old system, BEEP drivers are regular employees. They get a fixed salary of P1,100 per day and there is no profit boundary or quota required! That's for an 8-10 hour's worth of driving. They also wear uniforms, have SSS contributions. Drivers get assistance from a “passenger assistance officer” on board better known as conductors. The group also have their own mechanics for the maintenance and repair of the BEEP units.  What are the Passenger Benefits? Apart from the bigger and more spacious interior, passengers of air conditioned BEEPS travel in comfort, even if stuck in traffic. They also pay similar fare compared to older jeeps, starting with P8 minimum fare. Passenger safety is also foremost as drivers undergo medical, drug and psychological tests, and attend weekly seminars with their operators.

There are currently about 250,000 registered jeepneys in the country. Among the aim is to introduce 10,000 electric jeepneys within the next three years. Currently, among the number of newly deployed BEEPs, it's not clear how many of them are electric.  KAPIT Chairman Vigor Mendoza II said it is a good move from the government in ensuring the safety and protection of the riding public. The group said several Beeps jeepneys are already plying in Quezon City, Cagayan de Oro, Tarlac City, Baguio City and Cebu City.  These BEEP Jeeps have GPS so the operator can do strict monitoring of the BEEP's speed and route. While previous designs say they will have televisions, I have yet to see one that has a TV inside. But CCTV and dashcam are installed for safety. They also have a fire extinguisher inside each unit, something you will rarely find in old jeeps. The LTFRB said modernized PUVs will soon have Internet connection too. BEEP cards, for e-payments will also be incorporated.  The BEEPs are Euro 4 compliant, meaning they are environment-friendly and fuel efficient. This means the new e-jeeps follow a world standard set in 2008-2010 while many of the old jeeps we are used to have standards well before the 90's - that's about 30 years ago or more!  A standard BEEP has a capacity of 25 persons, and is more spacious than the traditional jeep.  So how do you get one of these cool rides? KAPIT Chairman Mendoza explains the requirements.  1. An operator has to be a member of a transport association. They will have to sign a Management Contract, allowing the transport association management of the vehicle for franchise purposes. If the operator has an old jeepney unit, he has to retire it. It is unclear if this program is allowed for new operators.  2. The official price for these new units are 1.4 Million for the non air-conditioned BEEPS and P1.6 Million for the air-conditioned BEEPs. But the operator does not need to shell out money!  3. KAPIT will actually provide the initial capital for the downpayment or guarantee in lieu of. They will also assist with the banking requirements.  4. The monthly amortization of the air-conditioned BEEP is P17,000 per month. Each unit can service up to 600 passengers per day.  Are they good for Drivers? Under the transport association, the BEEPs are good for drivers too. Unlike in the old system, BEEP drivers are regular employees. They get a fixed salary of P1,100 per day and there is no profit boundary or quota required! That's for an 8-10 hour's worth of driving. They also wear uniforms, have SSS contributions. Drivers get assistance from a “passenger assistance officer” on board better known as conductors. The group also have their own mechanics for the maintenance and repair of the BEEP units.  What are the Passenger Benefits? Apart from the bigger and more spacious interior, passengers of air conditioned BEEPS travel in comfort, even if stuck in traffic. They also pay similar fare compared to older jeeps, starting with P8 minimum fare. Passenger safety is also foremost as drivers undergo medical, drug and psychological tests, and attend weekly seminars with their operators.
