The cashless toll collection system was first implemented by the Department of Transportation (DOTr) last year to limit the transmission of the COVID-19 virus. The DOTr said that a cashless toll collection ensures physical distancing. DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade also explained that the agency wants the country’s transport facilities to not be a transmission vector of the virus.
Cashless toll collection helps limit the transmission of COVID-19
“We carry with us the burden of ensuring that our transport facilities will not be a transmission vector of the disease while at the same time providing an efficient system of public transport. With both tasks at hand, there is a need to strike a balance. Requiring contactless transactions is one of our ways of doing it,” Tugade said.
The said cashless system also intends to provide a safer, reliable, and more efficient transport service for the Filipino people.
