Jeepneys to extend service until 10 pm
by PIO release

Jeepney operators and drivers’ associations in the city will soon be required to extend their services up to 10 p.m.

Councilor Joel Alangsab proposed an ordinance that requires jeepney operators and drivers’ associations with 15 to 25 jeepney units to maintain not less than seven units to serve passengers from 6 to 10 p.m. daily.

Jeepney associations having 26 to 35 units shall maintain not less than 10 jeepney units while those having 36 or more units shall maintain not less than 12 units to serve commuters from 6 to 10 p.m. daily.

The ordinance said that the jeepney operators and drivers’ associations should come up with a scheme or an arrangement to maintain the minimum required number of units to serve the commuters.

Ordinance 66, s. 1995 requires jeepney operators and drivers’ associations to make available units for passengers up to 9 p.m. daily.

Because of the night market and other night establishments, Alangsab noted that there has been a clamor from the passengers for jeepney operators and drivers’ associations to extend their services up to 10 p.m.

The proposal said there were numerous complaints on the lack of jeepney units between 6 and 10 p.m., which causes the long lines of passengers in almost all jeepney terminals.

It said passengers waiting in line for jeepneys are exposed to harmful elements, such as braving the rain, which can make them sick.

The proposal was referred to the appropriate committee for study and action.
