MANILA - The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has allowed modern public utility vehicles to resume operations along the Alabang-Zapote Road starting Wednesday, June 24.

In a Facebook post Tuesday, Star 8 Green Technology Corporation announced its solar e-jeepneys have been allowed to resume operations after getting a special permit to operate in the area.


The modern PUVs are equipped with Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) or Global Positioning System (GPS). They will also be using cashless fare payment schemes.

Health standards such as the use of face masks and physical distancing must be observed inside the jeepneys.

The non-aircon modern jeepneys will collect a minimum fare of P11 for the first four kilometers. An additional P1.50 will be collected for each succeeding kilometer.

Modern jeepneys were allowed to operate anew on Monday with some 300 units plying 15 different routes in Metro Manila.
