State-owned Land Bank of the Philippines is offering an alternative mode of payment for traffic violators as the single ticketing system is being implemented in the National Capital Region (NCR).
In a statement, Landbank said traffic violators can settle their fines and charges online through its Link.BizPortal.
The bank said the Link.BizPortal has been integrated into the single ticketing system webpage of the apprehending local government units (LGUs).
The pilot implementation of the single ticketing system for traffic violations committed in Metro Manila began early this month.
It was initially launched in five cities, namely, San Juan, Paranaque, Muntinlupa, Valenzuela, and Quezon City.
The single ticketing system aims to establish a uniform policy on traffic violations and the penalty system in Metro Manila.
“Motorists can settle traffic fines and charges through the Link.BizPortal using their Landbank and Overseas Filipino Bank (OFBank) accounts, as well as virtual accounts opened via LandbankPay—the state-run bank’s all-in-one electronic wallet and payment solution,” the bank said.
Landbank said accounts with BancNet or PayGate participating banks and other e-wallets can also be utilized when transacting through the Link.BizPortal.
“The cash payment option is likewise available through cash and partner agents, including Landbank Agent Banking Partners (ABPs),” it said.
The state-run bank said its Link.BizPortal eliminates the need to go to the offices of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and apprehending LGUs for over-the-counter transactions, providing motorists with a safe and convenient option to settle traffic violations anytime and anywhere.
Prior to the pilot implementation of the single ticketing system in Metro Manila, Landbank said it has been facilitating the online collection of MMDA payments, fees, and charges through its Link.BizPortal since June 2021.
As of April 30, 2023, the bank said its portal had recorded over 160 transactions amounting to P109,734 for the settlement of traffic violations and anti-littering penalties for MMDA. —VAL, GMA Integrated News
