The Jeepney is known as the "King of the Road" in the Philippines. It is a colorful and uniquely embellished Public utility vehicle (PUV) that is a popular mode of transportation. Jeepneys embody the Filipino creativity and ingenuity. The first jeepneys were made out of army jeeps that were used by the American Military during WWII. Once onboard, Jeepney riders pass their payment (bayad) from hand to hand until it reaches the driver – a great example of Filipino community spirit or bayanihan.
