Never ride jeepneys that are out of their route, if you are a frequent commuter in Manila, please do be careful.
once you see jeepneys out of their routes and you see people seated at the back of it don’t ride even if you have to because you have no choice!
They will corner you once you sit behind the driver and eventually let you close your eyes and make you give all your things.
Don’t bring any important things in your bag unless you need them. or just don’t ride a jeep!
this is just based on my experience, and they had a gun!
If you’re in the situation, keep calm, and listen. Do whatever they say.. give everything away. Always remember to look at people’s faces once you ride a jeep or any Public Utility Vehicles.
Police were not helping, they just wasted our time, but do report them once you encounter them.
