Rainbow of but Here in Olon Gapo City visitors Arent going to find very Many of the Garish rigs of As part of a pioneering the colors Are being standardized according to set routes and the embellishments Are being kept to a i dont object to the use of a Little but it obscure the Basic color of the said mayor Richard a major proponent in the move to organize the City s j Kepney its nothing new to it was Joist months after taking office that he insisted Jeeney Drivers we studied not Only the transportation habits of the City but also of the Wear shirts with their names stencilled
