The pilot program for a single ticketing system was successful, according to the MMDA.

According to the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority, the single ticketing system (STS) pilot program spanning multiple cities in the National Capital Region went smoothly and garnered favorable feedback.

“The STS was successfully implemented in the five places it was first introduced. There have been no significant problems, worries, or complaints raised. We’re concentrating on a few changes that need to be made in the upcoming days. We are doing well so far, according to acting MMDA chair Don Artes, who oversaw Friday’s Metro Manila Council meeting.

In the cities of San Juan, Paranaque, Muntinlupa, Valenzuela, and Quezon City, the experimental run began on May 2.

Through a single system of fines and penalties, the STS enables communication between governmental entities engaged in traffic control.

To reduce bureaucracy and the potential for corruption, it also streamlines and digitizes the payment of penalties.

According to Artes, the distribution of handheld devices, body cameras, and training for traffic officials in using new technology are among the improvements that will ensure its smooth adoption.

“Digital handheld devices have already been purchased and are currently being configured for usage by LGUs. According to Artes, we will start distributing to LGUs this month, initially in the five locations where the STS was implemented.

Since this is the first time the system has been introduced, most problems have been connected to user unfamiliarity, according to LTO Regional Director Noreen San Luis-Lutey.

Other issues included access to the site, activation of online payment systems, and uploading of infraction information, among others.

Lutey added, “We’ll keep getting input and looking for ways to improve the system.

Francis Zamora, the mayor of San Juan and president of the MMC, reported that the pilot program in San Juan City went well and had a positive response from the general public. He attributed this to the system’s modifications that helped motorists.

“Driver’s licenses are no longer simply seized; a uniform set of fines is now levied for the 20 most frequent traffic infractions in Metro Manila, and fines may also be paid online. According to Zamora, the creation and expansion of STS to other cities excite us.

Meanwhile, the mayors of Metro Manila and the MMDA have agreed to start taking action to combat the consequences of the anticipated drought, as El Nino is predicted to arrive between July and early the next year.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration, Office of the Civil Defense, Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System, and the local chief executives, according to Artes, have all agreed to form a task force to discuss ways to lessen the effects of the El Nino phenomenon on the nation’s water supply.
