TRANSPORTING GOODS. The Jeepney – even with the presence of modern day buses and other vehicles, is still the trusted transport in the Philippines. It came into the country immediately after World War 2 and right up to this moment, is still being widely used by the public. They are loud, most of the times overloaded. But they are classically beautiful and people could not just live without them.  In the provinces, they are sometimes used as family cars. They are used for weekend trips to the beach, or family outings. In the cities, they are the King Of The Road. They ply most of the routes than any other types of vehicles. And they are more affordable to ride too compared to taxis and buses.  The picture above shows a typical jeepney used to transport farm goods to the market. Usually over decorated, the one above is simple. But the color scheme is so striking that it stands out in  the market. You can also see the two guys helping each other out to unload fruits and vegetables. Take note that some of the goods need to be placed on the roof for it is already full on the inside even on the front seat beside the driver. That is how reliable and strong a jeepney is.
