UNIFYING TOLL SYSTEMS

Toll operators of all expressways in the country finally agreed to make toll collection systems interoperable.

On 15 September 2017, the Department of Transportation (DOTr), through the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) and Land Transportation Office (LTO), along with the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA), signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for Toll Interoperability with expressway operators to unify toll collection in the country.



Under the MOA, expressway operators will be required to update their collection systems to allow interoperability and integration. For electronic payments, each operator shall install and maintain an Electronic Transit Media Reading Device in at least two entry and exit toll booths, which is capable of reading, accepting, and processing any electronic transit media approved by the TRB. For cash payments, each toll road operator will be required to install and maintain an Entry Ticket Reading Device in at least two entry and exit toll booths that accepts and processes any entry ticket. Motorists can use their electronic tags from one toll road operator to another. When paying in cash, motorists will get a ticket once at entry and pay once at exit.
