Things are looking up for electric mobility as Francisco Passenger Jeepney (FPJ) and I-Pay MYEG Philippines (MYEG Philippines) have recently announced a joint venture, providing automated fare collection systems specifically designed for electric and Euro IV compliant jeepneys. This is in response to the Philippine government’s Public Utility Vehicles Modernization Program (PUVMP).
Jeepneys manufactured by FPJ are mandated to be environmentally friendly and operate for the convenience and safety of the riding public. Wi-Fi connection, CCTV cameras, automated fare collection, air-conditioning (for some units), speed limiters, and the use of an electric or Euro IV powertrain are some of the main features.
Through this partnership, MYEG Philippines will be the exclusive provider of Automated Fare Collection System for all the jeepneys manufactured by Francisco. The integrated ticketing system will utilize multi-payment platforms that allows instant payment for jeepney passengers through e-wallet, NFC cards, and QR payment methods.
