I always sit in the rear near the door. I do that for two reasons: 1. I could lean my head and take a power nap. 2. I could jump out from the jeepney if things look unwell.

Ohh, sorry to say this but according to statistics those who sit beside the driver and those who sit at the back of the driver are the ones who often get killed or get mostly injured during car accidents! So because of this, I am very,very careful.. whenever I ride a jeepney... I always choose the middle seat at the back. I also do not seat at the end because the snatchers are targetting those who seat at that part. So we be better be careful!

i have the option to ride a jeepney or not when i come to work everyday. i can take a trike only and it would be really quick and im here already. Well anyway, when i ride a jeep, i prefer to be sitting close to the "entrance". i usually do not like to be on the inside of jeep and be the one to always reach for people's payments. he he

I sit right in front with the driver but I make sure that I'm the only one there or I let the other passenger sit between the driver and me so that in case of emergency, I can easily bail out. A lot of bandits appear when you least expected it so better be safe than sorry.

I used to sit at the end of the jeep, because it's easier to alight. Now I sit near the driver because in case of an accident, the driver would almost always try to save himself first, so that would put me in the safer zone :D (if there is such a thing as a "safe zone" in such a vehicle) Thanks for commenting in my discussion!

Oh I always sit at the end because I hate reaching the fare for other passengers hahaha! Just kidding. I usually sit there so that it would be easy for me to leave the vehicle. If the front seat is empty I also sit there.

I usually sit at the very end because I can lean my body and I have some space where my body could relax. I don't sit in the middle because there's a tendency were commuters would fit their bodies even though there's no enough space. Hmp!

I also like t sit in front as so I cannot see other people riding the jeepney, I avoid being wiht a lot of people as much as possinle as I have this shortness of breathe when I am confined in a small place wih so many people. and that sitting in front can also avoid having to hand other passenger's fare to th driver which can be annoying most of the times.

I usually like to sit at the rear or near the door. I like to sit there because I can lean my head when I want to nap and it was quite more airy there.

I sit wherever is the vacant side of the jeep. But If the driver side is vacant I usually beside him. I always want to sit in that area because the passenger area at back I think is always too crowdy.

I always want to sit near the door. That way, I have a wall to lean on. I don't want to sit at the back of the driver because I don't want to be the conductor of the jeep .

When I ride a jeepney, I prefer to sit in front beside the driver so I could easily go out. But that side is always taken so usually I sit at the back, near the exit.

i usually sit in the middle because i've noticed that those sitting in the ends usually get to be victims of pick pockets so i try to keep myself away from harm by sitting in the middle part. lol

I usually sit where there is a vacant seat. Unless i'll be the first to enter the jeepney. If that is the case, i'll sit near the entrance.
