Skyway operator temporarily returns to old collection system, appeals for public understanding

 

Skyway O&M Corp. (SOMCO) has reverted to the pay-as-you-enter scheme but appealed to the public to give its proposed new collection system a try.

SOMCO returned to the old system for vehicles.coming from Alabang, Sucat and Bicutan following public uproar over the heavy traffic caused by the new toll plaza and payment scheme.

It said only Class 2 vehicles – buses and delivery vans which comprise 27% of total vehicular volume – are now required to utilize the new runway toll plaza, also for both cash and RFID payments.

Given their sizen Class 2 vehicles account for almost 50% of total daily volume on the Skyway system.

The Skyway operator appealed to the public not to be too quick in rejecting ideas that could work but require a little sacrifice from everyone.

“Ultimately, we believe this will lead to more convenience for motorists and even those not using the Skyway. Moving forward, we remain committed to working with all stakeholders, in continuing to study and find ways to mitigate traffic volume to improve our service to the public,” SOMCO said.

SOMCO said its main objective continues to be faster throughput at toll plazas, and the easing of traffic buildup at roads that lead to the entry points of the elevated Skyway.
