DOTr Expected to Sign PUV Modernization Program*



Metro Manila June 2017 news

Jeepneys will soon be modernized.


The Department of Transportation (DOTr) aims to sign the PUV Modernization Program before the end of the month. The program will contain the Omnibus Franchising Guidelines (OFG) to improve traffic and transportation in the country. It also aims to eliminate ‘colorum’ vehicles and to rationalize the routes based on the needs of each local government unit (LGU).

To help in the modernization, the government will also provide financial assistance programs to operators and drivers of public utility jeepneys (PUJ). While the final design for the new jeepneys is yet to be released, the government aims to comply with Euro-4 standard vehicles or vehicles that could use renewable energy.
