Enhanced community quarantine has been imposed due to COVID-19 outbreak and travel ban has been strictly implemented. Because of this, nobody is allowed to go to places for no reason whatsoever, not unless you’re a front-line worker like the health workers, the police and the military and many more.
Especially for the drivers, who are not allowed to drive for even limited hours, it’s been a huge burden.
Considering that both drivers and passengers will be in danger, the national government never allowed an exception on public vehicles, even on tricycles and pedicabs.
That’s why, when Baguio City started to show improvements to their COVID-19 situation, drivers had a little hope that they might be able to do something that will wow their LGUs and finally allow them to get back to work.
A jeepney driver decided to redesign his jeep to indicate social distance with a plastic partition, and wowed everyone on social media.
Gideon Amino, one of the insipired COVID-19 designers said this will also help them know immediately whether the jeepney is already full. In this case, instead 9-10 people will be taken inside by the usual 18 passenger, to give everyone space.
And now that ths jeepneys are back to their thing in Baguio, Gideon’s idea has served as an inspiration to anyone who wants to assure the safety of everyone.
“It gave me a sense of comfort and safety. It made me appreciate the efforts made by the owner of the jeepney and the driver to keep their passengers safe,” Fe Carina Camaeg, one of the Jeepney’s passengers, said during her interview with ABS CBN.
Do you think this kind of jeepney will work here in Cebu the moment ECQ gets lifted?
