Are you one of those daily commuters who rides the Philippine National Railway (PNR) trains? With the old, rusty and smelly trains, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) launched a hybrid train that will replace those old trains running the PNR tracks.

The Electric Hybrid Trains (EHT), which is 100% Pinoy made will be tested on the PNR tracks. The said train runs on a hybrid technology that is powered by both diesel and electric power. It also has a brand new air-conditioning installed to accommodate 220 passengers.

Do you think that this new hybrid trains will help ease commuters' struggles with regards to their daily commute on the PNR? Will this entice more people to use public transportation instead of bringing their own car that causes traffic congestion? With it being 100% Pinoy made, do you think that we can compete with other markets globally?
