The Grotto-Novaliches Transport Service Cooperative (GNTSC), one of the growing transport organizations servicing the Muñoz-Novaliches routes, bolsters its public transportation operations by opting for the FOTON F-Jeepney F29.
Last November 8, FOTON Philippines successfully turned over FOTON F-Jeepney F29 units to GNTSC, at the Gumamela Hall Convention Center in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan. GNTSC’s fleet is now twice as ready to cater to the public with FOTON’s modern jeepneys after the momentous partnership, which FOTON Marilao dealership successfully closed.
The FOTON F-Jeepney F29 modern jeepneys, with their robust build, are especially designed to meet the standards and demands of urban and provincial roads. Their high-powered engines assure an outstanding shelf life, a foremost requirement for public utility vehicles.
Gracing the turnover ceremony were City Mayor Arthuro B. Robes, Vice Mayor Efren Bartolome, GNTSC Chairman Jayson Valerio, FOTON Philippines President Erroll Dueñas, FOTON Philippines Vice President for Sales Levy S. Santos, Chief Financial Officer Jerryme Garcia and Vice President for Sales and Marketing Rommel Juan of Centro Manufacturing Corp.
The FOTON F-Jeepney F-29 is a 29-seater passenger vehicle, powered by a 3.8-liter Cummins ISF engine, capable of producing 154 hp. These features mate with its 500 Nm of torque at 1200-1900 rpm, one of the most lauded features for a workhorse that caters best for day-to-day mobility. These modern jeepney units ensure an improved safety and comfort for passengers, with modern functionalities such as a multi-camera security, an automatic fare collection system, and trackers. The FOTON F-Jeepney F29 is among the top-tier lines of FOTON Philippines’ Euro IV-compliant modern PUVs, such as the 26-seater F-Jeepney Class 3, and the F-Jeepney F11 that can carry 11 passengers.
