As one of the most characteristic tool of transportation, jeepney is a cultural symbol for local people to commute and travel.November 8, Foton Philippines successfully turned over F-Jeepney F29 units to GNTSC at the Gumamela Hall Convention Center in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan. GNTSC’s fleet is now twice as ready to cater to the public with these modern jeepneys after the momentous partnership.
The Grotto-Novaliches Transport Service Cooperative (GNTSC), one of the growing transport organizations servicing the Muñoz-Novaliches routes, bolsters its public transportation operations by opting for the Foton F-Jeepney F29. As specially designed to meet the standards and demands of urban and provincial roads, FOTON Jeepney engines assure an outstanding shelf life, a foremost requirement for public utility vehicles.
Each F-29 Jeepney can seat 29 passengers and all are powered by a 3.8-liter Cummins ISF engine, capable of producing 154 PS and 500 Nm of torque at 1200-1900 rpm. These modern jeepney units ensure improved safety and comfort for passengers, with modern functionalities such as multi-camera security, an automatic fare collection system, and trackers.
Traditional Jeepney vehicles in the Philippines are in urgent need of upgrading due to safety and emission issues. As the second generation of FOTON's Jeepney products, the F-Jeepney F29 series has been upgraded to the AUMARK S platform that meets European standards and easily meets local Euro IV emission standards. It has gained the trust and love of the local government and head customers, providing a truly worry-free travel experience for local citizens, and FOTON has become the driver of innovation and upgrading in the Philippine industry.
