There are a total of 220,000 units of jeepneys all over the country, 67,000 of which are in Metro Manila. As part of the government's Public Utility Jeepney (PUJ) Modernization Program for the public transportation industry, Hyundai is doing its part in developing its own Modern Jeepney in partnership with the University of the Philippines College of Architecture (UPCA).
Each team will be comprised of undergraduate students who will be tasked to create a conceptual design for the body of a Modern Jeepney. The primary concerns of the conceptual design are the space for the commuters and the driver, and the creative form of the vehicle’s body. There are two (2) types of passenger seating for Public Utility Vehicles (PUVs), front and side seating, which the students must explore in their design.
Technical aspects such as the engine and other mechanical parts will not be a concern in the design. The dimensions are based on the Philippine National Standard for PUV Class 2 and 3, which can be downloaded from the UPCA website.
