ON THE ROAD: The many ways of traveling to work and vice versa, part 2

Isn’t it hard to pick the best way to get to work? Is there any way to make it even a bit easier? Well, there just might be! We’ve put together a concise analysis of the most common ways professionals get to work. Read on and find out the pros and cons of this week’s pick!

You picked: The Jeepney

Speed: 3. You’re not the only passenger. There will be frequent pickups and drops. If you take a jeepney from a terminal, the driver is also likely to wait and fill up every seat before leaving.

Availability: 3. Terminal queues can get very long. If you wait for passing jeepneys, they will most likely be full already during key hours of the day.

Comfort: 1. The normal scenario is a full jeepney. Barkers pack as many passengers as possible into one vehicle, with no regard for their comfort.

Safety: 3. Jeepney drivers have a tendency to drive recklessly, in an effort to compete for passengers with other jeepneys. The vehicle is also open to robbers or other criminals.

Cost: 5. The jeepney is the cheapest mode of transport on main roads here in the Philippines.

When is the best time to take a jeepney?

Take a jeepney when you have reasonable time and you need to budget your fare.
