Before the advent of the modern day taxis, old Kagay-anons have the PU Minicas plying the streets of Cagayan de Oro.
The so-called PUs or Public Utility Mini Service are actually Mitsubishi Minica which belong to the 3rd (1972-1977) and 4th generation (1977-1984) model units. These 2-door units are the “ancestors” of the modern day taxis we now see in the city. The PUs slowly faded in the mid-80s when the first 4-door “yellow” taxis started to operate in the city.
