Bayanihan sa Daan showcased the idea of sharing the road using highly efficient alternative mass transport system like the DOST Hybrid Electric Road Train, a Filipino developed mass transport vehicle that runs both on diesel fuel and electricity using a 300kVA generator with 260 motor vehicle batteries.

The train is composed of five interlinked air-conditioned coaches that has a capacity of 240 passengers per trip. (Photo courtesy of the Bayanhan sa Daan Movement)
