PITAMCO AIMS TO IMPROVE THE CEBUANO COMMUTER EXPERIENCE WITH FOTON MODERN F-JEEPNEYS

Eyeing to empower Cebu City’s public transportation, FOTON GMA Cavite, under the management of Zoomhub, Inc., turned over multiple units of FOTON Modern Jeepneys F24 to Pit-os, Talamban, Mandaue Transport Cooperative (PITAMCO) at the grounds of Cebu Provincial Capitol, boosting the area’s commuting experience with high convenience and safety while promoting a greener environment.

Enabling hassle-free transportation, the FOTON F-Jeepney F24 embodies competent mobility as it complies with the Philippine National Standard (PNS) 2126:2017. It’s equipped with government-mandated accessories, including CCTV cameras, Automatic Fare Collection System, GPS Tracker, Wi-Fi, and durable handrails. It also provides extra comfort with its cushioned seats and powerful and highly effective air-conditioning system.

FOTON F-Jeepneys are PITAMCO’s top choice in their intricate selection as their mobility partner. The cooperative highly values the brand’s durability and quality of aftersales service.

“The FOTON F24 modern jeepneys have a nice design and also have CCTV for security, Wi-Fi for the passengers not to get bored while traveling for work or wherever they will go, and the cashless fare collection. We simply fell in love with FOTON Modern F-Jeepney, so we chose them to be our partner in this PUV Modernization Program,” says PITAMCO Chairman, Ma. Flordeliza Albiso.

Moreover, the FOTON Modern F-Jeepney complies with the Department of Natural Resources (DENR)’s Administrative Order No. 2015-04. It’s equipped with Euro IV-compliant emission standards that cut the production of carbon monoxide and other dangerous gases by half, compared to Euro II. 

“The PUV modernization program is a relevant program to address the issue of climate change, for us to get involved in the restoration of our environment, in which the transport sector contributes much carbon emissions,” says Albiso.

Supporting this economy-boosting endeavor, representatives from various Cebu-based transport cooperative and government agencies attended the event, including delegates from Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board(LTFRB) Region 7, Cebu City Local Government, and the government financial institution, Landbank.
