Top Vehicles That Should Replace the Popular Jeepney

Jeepneys need to evolve to survive. They have been a constant problem for a long time and need improvement. Fortunately, there are changes like the Department of Transportation (DOT) Jeepney modernization program. The law will ban all 15-year-old jeepneys and replace them with more environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient vehicles on the road.

Naturally, the Jeepney Modernization Act received a lot of resistance from jeepney drivers and owners. But I think it is a matter of time until it is fully implemented in the Philippines. The changes will come, and the Jeepney should be ready to take a big blow to lose their way from their next competitors competing for their throne.
