My guess would be that the last thing they want to do is lose their franchise as they might never get one back or have to wait in line a long time.

I hope you're right, Bud. I'd love to see progress on this plan. I know someone needs to do something to help clean up the air in the cities. Even though our house is located about 15 miles from the center of Manila, the local jeepneys and tricycles spew out enough gunk to clog up anyone's lungs. And from our rooftop the smog over Manila is obvious most days. I avoid going into the city at all cost

Simple. If they wont renew your franchise you are taken off the road. There are rules and regulations and costs for operating a jeepney route.  Yes my friend operates 2 but there only about 5 or years old so she wont need to worry for some time. Incidentally the phasing out was extended for one more year only if the Jeepney passes a roadworthy.
