Mod­ern jeep­ney

Sun.Star Baguio - - Opinion -

AN added trans­port ser­vice for tourism may soon start op­er­a­tion in the City of Baguio be­fore the year ends. 1-Trans­port Equip­ment Ag­gre­ga­tor & Man­age­ment, Inc. (1-TEAM) Op­er­a­tions Man­ager Per­fecto Itliong Jr. said at least 15 Euro IV com­pli­ant units of BEEP, short for bagong jeep or mod­ern jeep­ney are ready to cater to the needs of tourists in the Sum­mer Cap­i­tal giv­ing them the com­fort they de­serve while en­joy­ing their travel to the dif­fer­ent tourist des­ti­na­tions.

Ear­lier, he met with the dif­fer­ent sec­tors in tourism in­clud­ing Depart­ment of Tourism Cordillera Re­gional Di­rec­tor Venus Tan for the needed rec­om­men­da­tion which is a re­quire­ment of the Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion to op­er­ate.

Tan said BEEP will be an added ser­vice to the tourism sec­tor which will be good for all tourists who will come to Baguio. Rid­ing in the en­vi­ron­men­tal friendly ve­hi­cle also means not spend­ing much for the fare.

Since it is Euro 4 com­pli­ant, BEEP pas­sen­gers’ safety will also be as­sured as it also uses the lat­est tech­nol­ogy for the pro­tec­tion of trav­el­ers.

Itliong said Mayor Mauri­cio Do­mo­gan ap­proved the build­ing of BEEP garage at Barangay Gi­bral­tar with plans to ex­pand.

Eight op­er­a­tors are now sup­port­ing the mod­ern­iza­tion pro­gram in com­pli­ance with the Om­nibus Fran­chis­ing guide­lines with a few re­fus­ing to adopt the pro­gram.

1-TEAM is giv­ing free sem­i­nars to those who have ap­pre­hen­sions on jeep­ney mod­ern­iza­tion. They are also open to those who would like to avail their ser­vices which will be given with­out down pay­ment.

Apart from our good cli­mate, giv­ing the best ser­vices to our vis­i­tors like the com­fort of trans­porta­tion and ameni­ties are the best things we can of­fer to make them re­mem­ber and en­joy their stay in this beau­ti­ful city.
