Photographer's Note

Jeepneys are a popular means of public transportation in the Philippines. Jeeps compete with each along the same route. Competition for customers is intense, and thousands of jeeps make out a living gathering as many customers as possible by running as often as possible and making their jeep more beautiful and pleasing bec. of the competetion.
The result? The customer benefits, and passengers are bombarded with offers to ride along. Neither do Filipino passengers have to trek to a bus station - so eager are jeeps to gain your patronage, that they will stop anywhere for you as long as you are within sight. This is to the detriment of people in private cars, but to the benefit of the
jeepney-riding public.

That jeepney is being made in Cavite, Philipines wherein you can find great manufacturers like wild country, Malaguena and milwaukee.
