Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. said over the weekend it is eyeing an “open road” to all expressways for faster travel.
“Our common vision for the future is to bring tolling technology in the country to the modern age,” MPTC president and chief executive Rodrigo Franco said.
He said the “full RFID in the expressways, after whatever refinement will be mandated, is just the first stage.”
“We want to see in the second stage an efficient interoperable and seamless toll collection system in the country. The final stage is the vision of the ‘open road’ where there are neither barriers nor tollgates at all in expressways,” Franco said.
He said that all expressways were prepared for both cashless and cash payments at toll plazas.
“We are prepared to respond favorably to any initiative taken by the executive and legislative branches to make expressways even more convenient and safer for our customers,” Franco said.
