PUVMP deadline extended: Collective action works!

Today, thousands of jeepney drivers and operators as well as millions of commuters gained a partial victory with the recent extension of the deadline for the mandatory franchise consolidation policy of the PUV modernization program (PUVMP).

Our relentless collective action and determination to defend our public transport has compelled the Marcos regime to extend the deadline for franchise consolidation to April 30.

However, a deadline extension is not enough. PISTON will continue mobilizing until the corporate-driven PUV modernization program is repealed and until a progressive public mass transport system is in place.
