Pretty cool looking Jeepney that would attract Gundam enthusiast. I would pay 30PHP as minimum fare if I ever had a chance to ride this jeepney.

and here's a short information from wikipedia

Jeepneys are the most popular means of public transportation in the Philippines. They are known for their crowded seating and flamboyant decorations, which have become a ubiquitous symbol of Philippine culture and art. A Sarao jeepney was exhibited at the Philippine pavilion at the 1964 New York World's Fair as a national image for the Filipinos.

Jeepneys were originally made from US military jeeps left over from World War II. The word jeepney came from the combination of the words "jeep" and "jitney", a small bus that carries passengers on a regular route with flexible schedule. While most are used as public utility vehicles, jeepneys used as personal vehicles have their rear doors attached with "For family use" or "Private" sign painted on them to alert commuters. Jeepneys are used less often for commercial or institutional use.
