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
PGT donates Coaster to TSU
The Provincial Government of Tarlac (PGT) headed by Gov. Susan A. Yap donated a brand new Hyundai Coaster bus to Tarlac State University (TSU) last December 15, 2017 at the TSU Gym.
Along with the celebration of the university’s year end thanksgiving party, the governor, though has a busy schedule, managed to attend the said event. “Syempre, hindi naman ako pupunta rito nang walang dahilan,” said Honorable Yap surprising the TSU community with a gift.
President Myrna Q. Mallari revealed the content of the wrapped gift and was surprised with a huge key. “Actually, budget ang hinihingi natin tapos dadagdagan na lang, pero buong bus ang binigay nila,” said Dr. Mallari while holding the governor’s present.
The new coaster bus can be used by students and personnel of the University for their Official Business Travel. John H. Lanuzo – Executive Assistant, VP ILEA
