After merely 3 months of home isolation, the Philippines is now slowly opening its economy to sustain and maintain the stability of the country. A partial opening to many businesses, and the resumptions of public transportation are the first thing that the Government had come up with. 

But there are still lots of questions that leaves Filipino citizens confused, one of these is how are the transportation operators, drivers, and conductors will practice health precautionary measures considering that it is a ‘public’ transportation.

A jeepney in Baguio City has answer for this, he came up to create an honesty jeep, where passengers will pay their fare thru a plastic bottle hanging in the middle of the jeepney.

According to Orly Pacya, the uploader of the Honesty jeep, only 50% of the whole capacity of the jeepney will be entertained to ride aboard.

Inside the jeepney, there’s a sign reminding passengers to wear their facemask and urging them to pay exact amount because of it has no returning of change.
