Aged jeep­neys to be banned

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Start­ing from Jan 1 next year, the gov­ern­ment will ban jeep­neys aged 15 years or older from ply­ing the streets de­spite the op­po­si­tion of some trans­port groups. The move is part of the gov­ern­ment’s Pub­lic Util­ity Ve­hi­cle Mod­ern­iza­tion Pro­gram, a three-year plan aimed at mak­ing jeep­neys safer and more en­vi­ron­men­tal­lyfriendly. Con­trary to the claims of some trans­port groups, pres­i­den­tial spokesper­son Harry Roque said in a state­ment on Thurs­day that the pro­gram “is not anti-poor.”
