Japanese truckmaker Hino has boosted the concerted efforts in the Philippines on the fight against the Coronavirus (Covid-19).

Hino Motors Philippines (HMP) recently forged partnership with the Department of Transportation (DOTr) by providing free shuttle services for health workers and frontliners in Metro Manila.

Some three Hino Euro 4 Class II Modern PUVs were loaned to the government to help ease the commute for healthcare workers.

The free PUV rides have been made operational daily. The commuters only have to present their IDs for proper identification.

According to HMP, shuttle services prioritize health workers and frontliners, but citizens of the city who need to go to the hospital or other establishments for basic necessities may also ride the shuttle as long as they present their quarantine pass.

To comply with the enhanced community quarantine guidelines, preventive measures against COVID-19 are implemented inside the PUVs such as social distancing, basic alcohol sanitization and free face masks for passengers.

The PUV units also undergo disinfection before and after deployment.

Hino recognized the contribution of healthcare professionals in battling global pandemic.

“We thank and sympathize with our health workers and frontliners. We stand-by our corporate mission of making the world a better place to live - by helping people and goods get where they need to go―safely, economically and with environmental responsibility. Through this simple effort, we hope that our frontliners would know that they are not alone in this fight—that we from Hino and the DOTr are with them,” Hino Chairman Vicente Mills Jr. said.

In line with the company’s mission of mobilizing innovations to promote the best interest and well-being of its stakeholders, Hino is continuously working with DOTr to provide safe and reliable transportation support to the most vulnerable.
