Within the month, the minimum fare for jeepneys will go up by P1.50. This means that minimum fare becomes P 5.50 (est. $0.10) for the first 4 kilometers and P 1 every kilometer thereafter.
In the case of the 5 in the picture, their fare maybe free but the price they have to pay can range from P1,000 to P 5,000 for any broken bone or torn ligament to as low as P 20 for cold tablets and a hot cup of soup.
