Standard Public Transportation

Of all the forms of public transportation in the Philippines, the Jeepney has always received the most publicity because it's so lavishly decorated. But, for me personally, the Jeepney is the third most popular, right behind the trike and the taxi, depending on the distance I need to travel.
For the unfamiliar, the trike is a 3-wheeled motorcycle with a roofed sidecar that will seat up to 5-6 passengers, depending on their size. The Taxis are usually Air-conditioned medium-sized Toyota cars.
Of course, additional modes of travel utilized by the locals also include walking, bikes, scooters and personal cars.
