In the past months, jeepney operators had protested against the modernization program of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) in which public utility vehicles (PUVs) that are more than 15 years old will be banned from the road, and will be replaced by vehicles with "low-carbon and low-emission technology."

Magno added that drivers and operators could not shoulder the P1.6-million loan for new jeepney units and daily amortization of P800.

The group proposed for the rehabilitation of old jeepneys instead of acquiring new units.
