Carmona, Cavite – Sojitz Fuso Philippines Corporation (SFP) turned over five (5) Canter Commute (Class 2) units to Common Transport Service Cooperative (CTSC) on August 30, 2023 in Carmona, Cavite.
These newly purchased Canter modern PUVs are expected to deploy along Marcos Ave. Commonwealth Ave. Quezon City and Montalban Rizal via LITEX. The purchase partnership between SFP and CTSC was facilitated by Alpine Motors Corporation – FUSO Carmona.
“We’re celebrating our partnership with SFP, Almazora, Coolaire and our Day 1 with Common Transport Service Cooperative. We’re very happy to have CTSC as our partners. Thank you for the trust in Alpine and FUSO – we will give our hundred percent support for sales and aftersales. Congratulations to everybody. To CTSC, congratulations!” said Mr. Francis Martin Gonzales, President of Alpine Motors Corporation.
Equipped with a Euro V-compliant 3.0L diesel engine, Canter Commute delivers both better fuel economy and cleaner emissions for more sustainable transportation than traditional one. These modern PUVs have been assembled using the Canter platform and were collaboratively designed by SFP and Almazora Motors Corporation.
The Class 2 public utility vehicles can fit 20 people in side-facing seats while still accommodating 10 more standing passengers. Comfort-wise, the air-conditioning unit installed is patterned with FUSO’s popular light bus model, Rosa. Air-condition vents are mounted overhead to give the interior an equal distribution of airflow.
Canter Commute (Class 2) is also compliant based on the requirements set by the Philippine National Standards (PNS 2126:2017), not only safeguarding passengers’ security but also streamlining their travel experience with added convenience in fare collection.
SFP’s modern PUV warranty coverage for cab and chassis is 3 years or 100,000 km, whichever comes first, and a separate warranty for body and accessories which these options are not available for old commuter mode of transportation.
“…[kami’y] buong pusong nagpapasalamat sa inyo, sa FUSO Philippines, sa Alpine Motors, sapagkat muli po binuksan ninyo ang pintuan at binigyan niyo kami ng pagkakataong makapag-hanapbuhay pa, magkaroon ng ikabubuhay namin, at maging pag-asa kami ng mga taong umaasa sa amin. Maraming maraming salamat po!”
