Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC), the country’s leading manufacturer of trucks and light commercial vehicles, announces its PUV turnover to Alabang Transport Service Cooperative.
IPC has turned over 24 units of Class 2 PUVs, with bodies manufactured by Almazora and Centro, to Alabang Transport Service Cooperative (ATSC) last July 12, 2019 at Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway (MCX). The event was attended by IPC Executives and ATSC officers, and municipal officials for their immediate deployment from Las Piñas and Paranaque to Alabang.
Alabang, part of the second district of Muntinlupa, has undergone tremendous growth mainly due to a development boom in the late 1990s. The development of high-end, large scale commercial real estate projects changed its landscape. Once vast fields of cow pasture until the late 1980s, today it is a district that houses new residential, business, industrial and commercial establishments. Some of the country’s premier business districts which host information and technology industries, hotel buildings, and other business sectors are important places of interest and landmarks of the district.
“We are glad that there is a growing number of transport cooperatives like Alabang Transport Service Cooperative who trust our brand and is confident that Isuzu will be able to serve their mission to the community,” said IPC President, Hajime Koso.
Alabang Transport Service Cooperative is one of the oldest and biggest cooperatives in Muntinlupa, steadily growing since its founding in 1975.
“As our cooperative grows, we are assured that through the newly acquired Isuzu PUVs, we are able to promote the development of the transport service here in Alabang, improve the quality and safety of the commuters’ ride, and to serve our mission to the community of Muntinlupa,” said ATSC Chairman Bienvenido Barra.
Isuzu PUVs are designed to deliver powerful driving performance, high durability, comfort, convenience, and good transport quality. It is equipped with air-conditioning by Coolaire, CCTV and dashcams, a GPS tracking system, and automated electronic fare collection system, all for the safety, comfort, and convenience of Filipino commuters.
Isuzu’s top priority is to give transport solutions to Filipino commuters by providing safer and more environment-friendly transport options. Isuzu PUVs are also equipped with PWD-friendly features for their convenience. Isuzu aims to further improve PUVs for a better transport system.
