Jeepney’s are unique road transportation vehicles used in the Philippines. A cross between a bus and a jeep!
“Where do Jeepney’s come from?” It’s a question I’ve wanted an answer to since first jumping on board one of these gas guzzlers in Manila. Of all public transport vehicles I have taken, I like the jeepney the most. Especially the front seat!
I asked around Manila and the Visayas, only to be misunderstood, misquoted, and then offered one for sale. No, I only wanted to know where they came from. Who created this unique auto mobile? Like most things these days, the internet coughed up some answers. A small site about post WW2 manufacturers that have long since closed down in post American influenced Philippines.
