Philippines-40 E-Jeepneys Will Roll Over in EDSA From Centris to Monumento on Dec. 1
At least 40 units of Electronic Jeepneys (E-Jeepneys) will be visible along EDSA starting Dec. 1, 2013. This was confirmed on Friday by Pasang Masda Pres. Obet Martin claiming that the E-Jeepneys will ply the route between Monumento in Caloocan to Centris in Quezon City and Vice Versa. Passengers will be asked to buy magnetic cards in the designated terminals in Eton Centris and in Monumento just like MRT and LRT. However the FEJODAP (Federation of Jeepney Operators and Drivers Association of the Philippines) headed by Zeny Maranan and ACTO (Alliance of Concerned Transport Organization) headed by Efren De Luna tried to block the soft opening of the new route. Martin claimed that their act were legal and was approved by the Eton Centris management while FEJODAP and ACTO didn't bother to apply despite knowing that we are seeking permit to operate in order to make our business legal. The intervention of MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino, the possible uprising of Maranan and De Luna's group were thwarted after he managed to look for a win, a win solution to the problem.
