A popular and convenient way to get around in the Philippines. The jeepney is the most used mass transportation in the Philippines.
The first jeepney was the army jeeps left by the United States after the Second World War. Artworks of painstaking detail are often seen on the shining chrome bodies of these vehicles, which, as earlier said, are copies of army jeeps, resized and remodeled to accommodate commuting passengers numbering from 20 to 30 all in all.
The unique thing about jeepneys is that no jeepney is exactly the same as another.
Jeepneys usually have boards attatched on the windshield of the jeep to indicate where it will be going.
Passenger usually shouts Para if they want to leave the jeepney.
Jeepney is also called JEEP.
American: Hey Juan, what is the best way to get to makati?
Filipino: Joe, ride the jeepney that has the board named "makati" in the windshield.
