TSU Welcomes New E-jeep


TSU Welcomes New E-jeep



The University Research Office, Procurement Office, and the Budget Office presented to TSU President, Dr. Myrna Q. Mallari last December 8, 2017, the first ever University “E-Jeep” – a new three-wheeled motor cycle vehicle with a cab that will be useful in ferrying people and personnel to and fro and in and around the vast TSU campuses. Witnessing the turnover were Prof. Leo Piao, Rsearch Office Director, Director Redmeptor Toledano of the University Planning Office, Budget Office Director Jesus Danganan, Chief Administrative Officer for Finance, John Erwin Panlilio, Theresa Penano, OIC Director for Procurement

 The project vehicle runs on pure electricity, using a powerful electric motor capable of carrying eight full size individuals including the driver up to 65 kilometers in a single charge. Charging the battery is as easy as plugging a cellphone to an ordinary AC outlet. The vehicle is cost efficient, convenient, silent, easy to maneuver and park, and emits no harmful fumes or emissions. Designed after the iconic Philippine transport vehicle, the jitney, the E-Jeep is the first public transport of its kind in Southeast Asia and was launched on July 1, 2008 in a historic drive along Ayala Avenue in Makati. According to Director Piao, the E-jeep may soon be the precursor of a planned solar powered jeep in the University.

 With the E-Jeep, the University hopes to maximize transport services and supplement existing ones in the University for the benefit of the TSU community. - Kharen V. Salonga
