  • Just today I have learned that Commet E-Jeepney is operational already in Quezon City. So I created this post so that commuters will be guided in riding Comet jeepneys.

    What are the routes served by Comet E-Jeepney?

    As the e-jeepney is relatively new, the only available route now is in Quezon City which is from SM City North EDSA to Katipunan LRT-2 Station and vice versa. As they open new routes in the future, I will update this post so that other commuters from different areas of Metro Manila will also experience riding this amazing public transport which was introduced to the public by no other than US President Barack Obama in July.

    How to ride a comet e-jeepney?

    Here's the faring system of the comet jeepney. Say goodbye to loose coins and the hassles of not receiving a full change from traditional jeepney drivers. To ride a comet jeepney, you must first buy a reloadable GET pass card. Tap the card on a marked portion of the passengers' door, then ride. For the locations of where to buy GET cards, you can ask drivers once they stop at loading areas.

    Why would I ride a comet?

    Environment friendly because they don'r emit fumes, fast as their speed is 60 km per hour, and fan for its free wifi and television on-board. And the best part is the e-jeepney has camera installed at other end of the jeepney aimed at the door. The cameras take photos of each passengers getting on board and then transmit all photos taken to the command center. Now that's a one step forward for passenger safety, right?

    Operating hours of Comet E-Jeepneys

    Commets served passengers from 5am to 9pm.

    How Comet E-Jeepneys are managed to serve the riding public?

    All comets are being monitored by the command center for any problem, be it technical or human related, that might occurred while on the road. The command center has GPS tracking device that ensures all units are monitored wherever they are on their respective routes.
