Plaza tolling is now still widely adopted in most countries and regions due to its lower enforcement cost than tolling without barriers (open-road tolling). But the queuing in front of the toll plaza causes traffic congestion, energy wastes and emissions.
Electronic toll collection (ETC) is capable of collecting the toll automatically based on the communication between transponder and transceiver while the vehicle passes the tolling plaza ceaselessly. It enables government and road operators to improve transportation efficiency, decrease operation cost and conduct environmental-friendly management. As a leader and expert in highway tolling, Genvict provides global road operators with:
◆ Flexible tolling measures: ranging from manual toll collection (MTC) by cash, semi-manual toll collection by payment card to electronic toll collection by transponder;
◆ Various automatic vehicle identification (AVI) technologies: dedicated short-range communication (DSRC), radio frequency identification (RFID), automatic number plate recognition (ANPR);
◆ Modular offering: not limited to tolling system (ranging from front-end system to back-office management), we also offer communication system, monitoring system, tunnel management for highway management;
◆ End-to-end approach: full service from design, implementation, training, operation to maintenance.
It is believed that plaza tolling with ETC is a natural and mature platform in transition to open-road tolling (free-flow tolling). China has the longest expressway system and largest ETC user group in the world, reaching 144,000 km and 186 million in respective. Currently in China, plaza tolling with ETC and open-road tolling coexist, with 48,211 ETC lanes and 24,588 ETC gantries.
