MPTC holds a multi-stakeholder dialogue to tackle smart urban mobility

As cities globally recover and adapt to post-pandemic needs, conversations about smart urban mobility have been increasingly important. At the forefront is the need for economically and environmentally sustainable as well as technologically efficient solutions that will enable and sustain smart urban settings.

In the Philippine context, smart urban mobility entails the integration of intelligent transport and traffic systems that are needs-responsive and provide a seamlessly experience. Likewise, it calls for an updated governance and policy framework that supports the public’s growing demand for mobility spurred by economic and social activities; infusion of private equity to bring in modern infrastructure and technology; and constituent-friendly local governments who want to rebuild their cities centered on enhanced public service, economic viability and environmental care.

Towards Smart Urban Mobility

As one of the proponents of advancing smart urban mobility in the country, Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), the largest private toll road developer and operator in the ASEAN region, is bringing together industry luminaries for an in-depth discussion of pressing issues.
