Hyundai, Petron tie up to provide health workers free rides

Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), Philippines has forged a partnership with Petron Corp. to support the government’s program in providing free transportation to healthcare workers.

HARI recently said Petron now provides free fuel for Hyundai vehicles deployed under the “Libreng Sakay” program of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) for medical workers.

Under its Ligtas Byahe project, HARI has turned over three vehicles – the H-100 shuttle, HD36 shuttle, and HD50S Class 2 modern jeepney– to DOTr to help serve the 20 defined routes under the free ride program.

“With Petron as our partner, expect our Ligtas Biyahe vehicles to be at optimal service for our front-liners as we move towards a better normal. This cements our commitment to provide the riding public vehicles that are safe and convenient in these challenging times,” HARI president and chief executive officer Maria Fe Perez-Agudo said.

Perez-Agudo said their Hyundai vehicles used in the project have been installed barriers to ensure physical distancing among passengers. The HD50S Class 2 modern jeepney, she assured, is also compliant to the government’s Public Utility Vehicle (PUV) Modernization Program,

  The HD50S Class 3 modern jeepney model launched last January is poised to undergo DOTr’s testing.
