Super Jeepney – Only in the Philippines!

Jeepneys have ruled the streets of Manila as far as I can remember. I grew up riding in them, mostly commuting between school and home. Back in the day, though, there were only enough seats for 10 passengers – 4 in each rear row, and 2 in front.

But look at this super long jeepney! I chanced upon this monster during my recent visit to Manila, as we were traveling on North Luzon Expressway, or NLEX for short.

I can count at least 10 passengers in there, and that’s only one row in the back! I’d be quite uncomfortable sitting in the middle; I’m already having nightmares seeing it break in half! Really, does advancement in technology have to be this looong?
