Following up on its March 27 lend-out of Isuzu D-Max, Isuzu mu-X and Isuzu PUVs as frontline transport vehicles in Biñan and Sta. Rosa Laguna, Isuzu Philippines Corporation provided an additional unit of Isuzu NLR and another unit of Isuzu QKR modernized public utility vehicle to the Department of Transportation’s FREE BUS SERVICE for front line workers.
Now servicing 19 routes in Luzon , the free bus service is meant for the country’s healthcare and frontline workers in their fight to stem the spread of the Coronavirus disease 2019.
IPC President Hajime Koso said: “With this additional vehicle support, we at IPC hope that our dedicated and enduring heroes in the hospitals would find comfort and safety in their transport. Through our vehicles, we can help them fight the virus more efficiently and effectively.”
The two PUVs from IPC would then be turned over to authorized operators for their deployment to 19 specified routes in Luzon, where the extended enhanced community quarantine has been enforced until April 30.
In addition, IPC’s dealerships have also provided their own Isuzu vehicles. Isuzu Inteco lent their PUV vehicles to transport healthcare workers and frontliners in the vicinity of Caloocan and Quezon City for free, Isuzu-BMD Motors provided relief goods, while Isuzu Iloilo provided a D-MAX for the city hospital’s use.
