Single-ticketing system launched in 7 NCR cities 

by Carl Santos

The pilot implementation of the single-ticketing system began on Tuesday, May 2, in several cities in the National Capital Region.

The areas covered by the dry run were the cities of Manila, Quezon, Parañaque, Muntinlupa, Caloocan, Valenzuela, and San Juan.

The single-ticketing system seeks to establish a standard policy on traffic violations in Metro Manila.

Under the Metro Manila Traffic Code of 2023, these include violations such as reckless driving, disregarding traffic signs, loading and unloading in prohibited zones, distracted driving, and illegal counterflow.

“Ito po ay magiging malaking ginhawa para sa mga motorista. Dahil sa loob po ng single-ticketing system, ang top 20 most common traffic violations, ay may pare-parehong multa, contesting procedures, at digital payment platforms gaya GCash, Maya at Landbank,” Metropolitan Manila Development Authority spokesperson Melissa Carunungan said at the Laging Handa briefing on Monday, May 1. 

“Magdi-deploy ang MMDA ng 900 enforcer kada shifts sa mga pangunahing lansangan o depende rin sa kailangan o sa sitwasyon,” she added. 

“Karagdagan dito, may tracking department naman po ang bawat LGU (local government units) – noong nakaraang linggo, nagkaroon ng briefing nga para sa mga traffic enforcers at sinanay rin sila sa Metro Manila Traffic Code of 2023 kung saan nakalagay ang uniformed fines at penalties ng mga LGUs at MMDA at pinalawig rin po ang contesting procedure mula pitong araw, naging sampung araw na po.” 

Metro Manila Council president and San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora said that they planned to fully roll out the system in all 17 LGUs in the NCR over the next few weeks.
