Meralco’s ‘eSakay’ Launches Electric Jeepneys

Good news to passengers traveling between the cities of Makati and Mandaluyong.

A fleet of electric jeepneys has been launched by ‘eSakay,’ Meralco’s electric vehicle subsidiary, to service the Buendia MRT Station – Mandaluyong City Hall route for a minimum fare of P9.00.

According to chairman of the board Manuel Pangilinan, this initiative is Meralco’s bid to become an end-to-end vehicle solutions provider.

“The government’s thrust in implementing the PUV modernization program opens up the opportunity to shift towards the safer, sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation system,” said Pangilinan.

“Meralco has been supportive because we believe EVs have a place amongst PUVs,” he added.

High-Tech Features

The e-jeepney has a capacity of up to 40 passengers and can run up to 100 kilometers when fully charged. It is also 100 percent electric and boasts onboard wifi, an automated fare collection system, a GPS tracking system, and CCTV cameras.

The feature that passengers would surely love, however, is the USB ports that allows for charging of mobile devices.

‘eSakay’s’ launch is in line with the Department of Transportation’s relentless effort to provide quality, safe, and environment-friendly public transport under the government’s PUV Modernization program.
