They are originally known for being flamboyant and eye-catching due to their unique designs. Aside from their common structure, you can still tell them apart because their exterior and at times even interior designs are different from one another.

Some designs may include their favorite actors, sports teams, characters and even the members of their family. Of course, there are also religious designs that pay tribute to the significant figures of the Catholic church. It is really up to the owner to decide what type of design they want.
These days though, the designs of Jeepneys have started to fade and some are not as attractive as they used to be. Owners and drivers often times choose not to redecorate anymore for maybe the time used for that could instead be used to earn.
