    With the recent turnover of a fleet of Hyundai Modern PUVs in Northern and Central Luzon through Hyundai Trucks and Buses Cabanatuan, Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) sustains its support for the nationwide public vehicle modernization program (PUVMP).

    At the official turnover ceremony held at Laoag International Airport, DOTR chief Hon. Arthur P. Tugade commended the Laoag Bacarra Pasuquin Transport Group’s PUV modernization efforts: “By banding together into one cooperative, you are making sure that public transportation is not only safe and comfortable but more importantly, reasonable.”

    The units are among the estimated 100 Modern PUVs that HARI turned over to various transport cooperatives nationwide this year. HTB Cabanatuan proudly counts this as its fourth turnover this year, covering areas of Luzon, specifically Tarlac, Pangasinan, and now, Ilocos Norte and Bulacan.  “We are grateful for the opportunity to participate in the government’s PUVMP and to contribute to helping the country’s hard-working transport cooperatives to modernize their fleet through Hyundai’s quality people movers,” said HTB Cabanatuan president Dennis San Juan. “Our dealership is ready to provide service assistance necessary for their cooperatives to keep on moving for sustainable mobility and progress,” he added.

Fe Perez-Agudo, the vigorous sales of their Modern PUV models is an indicator of the growing trust and confidence of the transport sector in Hyundai. “HARI believes that quality speaks for itself, and that commitment to quality is what our hard-working, progressive transport groups have seen in our Hyundai Modern PUVs. They can rest assured that we shall return their trust with nothing less than dedicated service and assistance to maintain the quality, safety, and road-worthiness expected of our Modern PUVs.”
