Jeepney passengers conveys a lot of ways in stopping a jeepney when they already reach their destination. It could be through sound, hand signals or a combination of both. Upon reaching their destination, passengers usually say "para", "lugar lang", "sa yellow box lang" or for some they whistle, or make a sound by tapping a coin to any metal part of the jeepney or by knocking on the jeepney ceiling. Some konduktors also have hand signals, a finger pointing downward,to relay to the driver to stop the jeepney at the next corner. Others, whistles and tap any part of the jeepney. These are only some of the ways of relaying the message to the driver that a passenger already reach its destination and must stop the jeepney.
