Mandaue e-jeepneys benefit vendors, buyers
THE four electric jeepneys used to transport buyers and vendors to and from the Mandaue City public market had helped city residents cut costs on their fares.
Mandaue City market administrator Mosuline Suliva said the E-jeepneys are helpful not only for Mandaue City residents but visitors visiting the city market.
Free rides on E-jeepneys are made available days after the new market opened last Jan. 18. Purchased from China, each of the E-jeepneys cost P600,000.
Suliva said he is considering to recommend the procurement of another E-jeepney for the market.
He said E-jeepneys are environment-friendly and convenient to passengers.
The E-jeepneys are stationed at the old public market and head to the new public market, then to Burgos St., C. Ouano St. in front of City Hall before turning to S.B. Cabahug St. in front of the National Shrine of St. Joseph and returning to the new market.
The E-jeepney sits 14 passengers and has a five-hour running time. Re-charging takes eight hours.
Two e-jeepneys are scheduled to ply their routes during peak hours from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. The other two will take off at 4 p.m. Correspondent Fe Marie D. Dumaboc
