Suzuki Philippines deploys all-new Carry Units to provide free transportation to frontliners

Suzuki Philippines Inc. (SPH), the country’s pioneer in compact car distribution, has taken the opportunity to extend assistance to frontliners by lending all-new Carry UV units to the Department of Transportation (DOTr)’s ‘Free Bus Ride for Medical Workers Program’.

Last April 15, SPH turned over 10 Commercial Vehicles to the DOTr. Nine of the vehicles are Carry Utility Vans (UV), which will be utilized to transport frontline health workers. The other one is a Super Carry CV that will be allocated for logistics and delivery use.

The pick-up and drop-off points cover a considerable area in Metro Manila in an effort to accommodate frontline health workers from different communities. The eight routes include: SM City San Jose Del Monte to Centris Station (EDSA, Quezon Avenue), SM City Masinag to The Medical City, Ortigas, Ortigas Hospital and Healthcare Center to Rizal Medical Center, Centris Station (EDSA, Quezon Avenue) to Cubao-Arenta Center MRT 3 Station, SM City Taytay to De Los Santos Medical Center and St. Luke’s Medical Center along E. Rodriguez Avenue, SM City San Mateo to Robinsons Galleria and lastly, SM City San Jose Del Monte to SM Fairview and Commonwealth Avenue. 

Suzuki Philippines Inc. president Akira Utsumi expressed his gratitude to the frontliners and also thanked the DOTr for giving them an opportunity to help amid the health crisis.

“During these challenging times, we in Suzuki Philippines Inc. understand the impact that we can make as part of the automobile industry. We are more than willing to provide assistance to our frontline health workers for their unwavering commitment to continue serving the Filipino people especially at the current time. We are grateful for their solid dedication and we thank the DOTr as well for opening up a window for us to be of help,” he said.
