    No to Jeepney Phase Out

    Jeepneys are an iconic and valuable form of transportation in the Philippines, crowned as the “King of the Road” It's a wild, lively, and bold creature, adorned with flashy decorations and painted in bright colors, roaring through the streets nationwide. While it may seem chaotic, it perfectly embodies the spirit of the entire nation.

    Under the PUV Modernization Program, the government wants to push forward the replacement of traditional jeepneys, including old public utility vehicles (PUVs), with foreign-made modern PUVs that cost Php 2.5 to  2.8 million per unit. The Marcos Jr. government is planning to phase out jeepneys, putting the drivers and citizens who rely on them at risk of losing their jobs and access to transportation. Say No to Jeepney Phase Out!

    100% of the profits from each sale of this product goes to the families of Jeepney drivers as their jobs and livelihoods are now at risk due to the Jeepney Phase Out.
