Suzuki Philippines has extended a helping hand through the Free Bus Ride for Medical Workers Program of the Department of Transportation (DOTr). The program will serve as an avenue to lend out New Suzuki Carry UV units to transport frontliners from different location points to their respective workplaces easing their daily commute.
Last April 15 Suzuki Philippines turned over 10 commercial vehicles to the DOTr, nine of which were Carry Utility Vans. These vans will be used for the transportation of frontline health workers. The one Super Carry CV, on the other hand, will be used for logistics and delivery purposes. Both the Japanese brand and the DOTr have set up eight routes around the Metro Manila area with pickup and drop-off points situated in areas to cover a sizable amount of the area. These points were chosen to give the best chance for these medical workers to get a free ride.
The eight routes include SM City San Jose Del Monte to Centris Station (EDSA, Quezon Avenue), SM City Masinag to The Medical City, Ortigas, Ortigas Hospital and Healthcare Center to Rizal Medical Center, Centris Station (EDSA, Quezon Avenue) to Cubao-Araneta Center MRT 3 Station, SM City Taytay to De Los Santos Medical Center and St. Luke’s Medical Center along E. Rodriguez Avenue, SM City San Mateo to Robinsons Galleria and lastly, SM City San Jose Del Monte to SM Fairview and Commonwealth Avenue.
During these challenging times, we in Suzuki Philippines Inc. understand the impact that we can make as part of the automobile industry. We are more than willing to provide assistance to our frontline health workers for their unwavering commitment to continue serving the Filipino people especially at the current time. We are grateful for their solid dedication and we thank the DOTr as well for opening up a window for us to be of help
