Have you tried to ride on a jeep called patok? The long, fast running, loud playing sound, colorful jeep that usually takes a route of Cubao to Antipolo. I have tried it many times and I was really scared, holding on tight to my dear life because the drivers dont have manners. They love to over take on some vehicles, swiveling fast left and right and they do race each other especially when they are on a highway. But some young people love to ride in this jeep they were even cheering and asking to run faster. I just hope accident wont happen. As much as possible i dont want to ride again on this jeep. Have you tried to ride on a patok?

I have tried riding one and I never did again. It was a Montalban to Cubao route. Actually I had to get off and took another jeep halfway. The jeep was "over-taking" recklessly,you will slide off your seat! Everybody was shouting at the driver but this made him drive way off more! Never again...even if it is rush hour and there is one more seat available, if it is a patok...no way!

har har har patok. i used to love and to enjoy riding on those kinds of jeepney. just make sure you have the exact fare for i am not sure if you can still get your change even you shout at the top of your voice. but that was when i was younger. i am no longer finding the enjoyment to ride there. i think that is the sign of old age har har har. welcome to the wonderful world of mylot.

Fast running Jeep.. which are patok is beneficila if you are in a hurry.. But if not I'd rather prefer to ride on an old school jeep that offers smooth driving but none the less... I prefer riding on patok jeepnies because of the loud audio and I am always in a hurry.

jeepneys - They are what we ride here in Philippines
I have not heard of it.But whatever you call these jeepneys, the drivers are so fast that I always think I will die anytime when i am on the jeepney.The drivers should be considerate.It is uncomfortable as well because of heat and dust on the road.

Yeah.. I encounter that as well.. Atleast once or twice a week because my girlfriend is from Antipolo.. I'm not scared because I'm used to ride to fast vehicles and I love it.. By the way, I'm not that young.. The danger of accident is very prone mostly at Sumulong highway but I'm not scared because I'm confident that nothing will happen and I enjoy the ride..

i hate that kind of jeepneys. my boyfriend who works in antipolo is having fun riding that jeep. he told me how fast this jeeps are and he can go home early because of it. actually if you do love your life i wont try to ride that. i also hate those drivers who doesn't have any good manners. as if you must thank them that you rode to their jeeps. and yeah lizarabino let's hope that no accident will occur
