At the executive meeting of the State Council, it was decided to promote the abolition of highway toll stations at the provincial border. The use of new information technologies such as electronic toll collection on highways, instead of manual toll collection, further improves vehicle traffic efficiency and reduces logistics costs.
The more weekends, the more prone to scenery like inter-provincial guillotine. At the junction between the provinces, the endless traffic flow in front of the toll booths has blocked people's lives. Especially in the logistics industry, the more long-distance logistics vehicles run, the more they have to experience this kind of congestion several times.
In fact, before the Internet companies, the provincial expressway-centered highway groups have successively tried to test the access of the highway toll system and use mobile payment. It is imperative to introduce mobile payment in the field of highway tolling to improve traffic efficiency and user experience. Especially after the joining of Alipay, WeChat and UnionPay, there has been a rapid development trend.
At present, with a total length of 136,500 kilometers, it covers 98% of cities and towns and all cities with a population of over 200,000, ranking first in the world. With the rapid development of transportation networks between regions, provincial toll booths have become more dense, which has become a vascular obstruction in the national transportation network.
The Ministry of Communications stated that it will study some related new technologies and new working mechanisms, select areas with better conditions for piloting, and promote them on the basis of summing up experience and improving the system; at present, pilots in Shandong, Guangdong and Henan provinces have been launched. The mobile payment service is a favorable supplement to highway toll collection, and it actively encourages it.
At present, the most popular non-cash toll collection on highways is ETC and license plate recognition. As a national-level project, ETC's mainstream status is self-evident, and in terms of improving vehicle traffic efficiency and service, ETC is worthy of recognition and trust after a long-term market test.
In addition to Alipay launching "license plate payment" and WeChat launching "high-speed e-line", the expressway itself has joined the battle. Judging from the breakthroughs in non-parking tolling technology and the planning of various Internet companies, ATJ's layout in the field of high-speed tolling will not stop at non-sense payment. Non-sense transportation is the final round of this offline scene battle. Make a note of it and face up to ETC.
A grand national high-speed siege was officially launched. A day without a card, no parking, and abandoning the toll station will soon come!
