    This is a usual question by foreigners who are amused with the jeepney. My take is don’t ride when you are alone. First problem is that you may get lost Next problem are the potential crimes that can happen in the streets. To be safe when taking a public transport is to have someone go with you.

    For an actual experience of a foreigner friend, we taught him how to hail a jeepney by waving the hand downwards. Upon riding, it is best to ask how much the fare is to the destination and pay at once. At least you would know if you were on the wrong jeepney. You can also ask the driver to stop at your destination. I’m sure the other passengers would provide you assistance.
