JAKARTA - Minister of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) Basuki Hadimuljono said the implementation of contactless toll road transactions or multi-lane free flow (MLFF) would be managed by a combination of domestic Toll Road Business Entities (BUJT).

The BUJTs that are willing to be involved in the corporate action are PT Hutama Karya (Persero), PT Nusantara Infrastructure Tbk (META) and PT Jasa Marga (Persero) Tbk (JSMR).

"Yes, so we have disbursed it. Not only RITS, Karen, if RITS itself, BUJT must be worried. Well, now we come in and thank God they are willing," said Basuki when met by reporters at his office, Friday, June 21.

He explained that the policy was issued to convince BUJT that the management of the MLFF system toll road is safe and monitored by the government.

Thus, PT Roatex Indonesia Toll System (RITS) will not be the only manager of the non-stop toll payment system.

It is known, PT Roatex Indonesia Toll System (RITS) previously stated its readiness to implement a contactless toll transaction system or multi lane free flow (MLFF) this year.

The plan is for the implementation of the toll road payment system without touching to be implemented in stages in October 2024 on the Bali Mandara Toll Road.

"RITS as the implementing enterprise (BUP) of the MLFF program is ready to implement the system according to the schedule targeted by the government, starting in the fourth quarter of this year," said PT RITS Attila Keszeg President Director in the Media Briefing & Talk Show "Driving Towards A Brighter Future: The Evolution of Indonesian Transportation For Accelerated Accessibility at the Jakarta Convention Center, Tuesday, May 28.

During this transition period, the system used was a single lane free flow (SLFF) while still using the barrier.

Thus, toll road users need to download the Cantas application, then the application is connected to a banking account belonging to to toll users.

Every time you pass the toll payment transaction point, the account balance will automatically decrease according to the nominal that must be paid when passing the toll road.

The MLFF is the latest technology in the world that processes payments automatically for vehicles passing on toll roads.

Through this technology, toll road users can enter and leave without having to stop to pay.
