The Cebu People’s Multi-Purpose Cooperative (CPMPC) launched 55 modern jeepneys or PeoplesJeep units last March 16 at the Blessed Sacrament Subdivision on Kagudoy Road in Barangay Basak Lapu-Lapu City.
The PeoplesJeep units are air-conditioned and equipped with GPS, speed limiter, front and rear cameras, CCTV for security, and TV for passenger entertainment. The units will ply various routes in Metro Cebu.
CPMPC is a multi-awarded cooperative that is one of the country’s largest, with more than 70,000 members nationwide.
The launching and blessing of the units was attended by LTFRB 7 Director Eduardo Montealto Jr., Cooperative Development Authority 7 Director Nora Patron, Board Chairperson Manolito Ardimer, Chief Executive Officer Macario Quevedo, Chief Operations Officer Brian Yap, members of the coop board and its officials and staff.
The units use modern engines that significantly cut carbon and sulfur emissions.
Fares are paid using Beep Cards, an automatic fare collection system (AFCS) required under the PUV modernization program. (Press Release)
