Good news for Makati City and Mandaluyong City residents: The Philippine Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has launched a new e-jeepney route that will ferry passengers between the two cities.

A total of 15 E-Sakay units will ferry commuters from MRT Buendia Station to Mandaluyong City Hall via Jupiter Street in Makati City. The route’s operating hours will be from 5am to 12 midnight. The minimum fare is set at P9; the maximum fare is P15. You can check out the LTFRB’s full announcement in the Facebook post below:

All E-Sakay e-jeepneys are 100% electric and can travel up to 100km on a full charge (which takes about eight to 10 hours). These vehicles also come equipped with modern features such as free Wi-Fi, automated fare systems, CCTV cameras, speed limiters, and USB ports for charging electronic devices.

Considering how bad traffic is in both cities these days, ditching a car in favor of public transport isn’t an idea that sounds as bad as it used to be. Would you be willing to commute via one of these e-jeepneys on a daily basis?
