Two-Story Jeepney as Public Transportation
Keywords:two-story jeepney, proposal
The most common problem of the commuters is the insufficient number of jeepneys. Finding a ride causes considerable hassle and takes a long time, especially for commuters that are in a hurry. The most common problem of public utility jeepneys (PUJs) is heavy traffic jams. Wasting their time in traffic causes a delay of the ride. Hence, because of traffic jams, it is difficult to commute. This study aimed to help the commuters to find a jeepney ride with no hassle to ensure a comfortable and safe ride. This study utilized a quantitative analysis method of research and used a survey questionnaire to select five architects and five Mechanical Engineers as respondents who assessed the level of acceptability of the miniature two-story jeepney in terms of construction materials, procedural methodology, mechanism, seating capacity, and presentation. This study used frequency and percentage, as well as a weighted mean, to sum up the gathered information. The study was assessed to determine the significant difference, with a level of significance of 0.01 and a degree of freedom of 8. The difference between the assessments of the two groups of respondents in terms of the level of acceptability of the two-story jeepney in terms of construction materials, procedural methodology, mechanism, seating capacity, and presentation was not significant. The problems encountered by the researchers have a minimal effect on the construction of the model. The suggestions and recommendations forwarded by the respondents are needed to improve the model. The researchers decided that the model will not be operated by a Dc motor because the model is extremely heavy to operate with a Dc motor. The model will work in a way of pushing because the wheels are functioning. The second deck of the model is detachable to see the inside of the first and second decks.
