MPT Mobility, the innovations arm of Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), launched its Smart Urban Mobility Solutions™ (SUM Solutions™) suite, which aims to collaborate with local government units (LGUs) under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement to address mobility challenges in their local areas through tech-driven mobility solutions.
SUM Solutions is a land mobility ecosystem that provides intelligent transportation management systems, peak-hour congestion pricing solutions, area-based monitoring and enforcement capabilities, smart parking systems, efficient public transportation and fleet management solutions, and roadside assistance support. These integrated services, supported by relevant policies from the LGUs, will help create more efficient transportation systems, reduce congestion, and promote road safety among their constituents.
MPTC and MPT Mobility’s CEO Rodrigo E. Franco shared how PPPs pave the way to projects that speed up progress on the local level,
“We highlight our capability to finance, construct, and operate major projects with LGUs, and one particular success story is the CCLEX (Cebu Cordova Link Expressway) project, which is a joint venture with Cebu City and the municipality of Cordova. We are excited to work with LGUs to provide solutions, address their mobility problems, and create lasting social impact and value in the lives of their residents, allowing them to move freely and provide opportunities to improve local economies.”
Aside from providing innovative and tech-driven solutions, SUM Solutions™ will also provide capacity-building to key LGU officials on managing and using these technologies. This approach will ensure that each LGU receives the support it needs to create an efficient, sustainable, and accessible-to-all transportation system.
“With our transportation and mobility sector expertise, we can create solutions customized to each LGU’s needs. The social and economic benefits to residents and business establishments will be substantial.”
To support this, MPT Mobility has partnered with Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd., a Singapore-based company known for its world-class solutions that help to create smarter, and sustainable transportation systems. ST Engineering has 800 smart city projects in over 150 countries worldwide.
