Emovis, part of Abertis Mobility Services, has secured another contract with Metropistas in Puerto Rico to implement additional barrier-free electronic tolling. It will be carried out on the existing dynamic tolling lanes (DTL) parallel to the PR-52 highway between San Juan and Caguas. The toll site will be located at the new access road connecting the PR-52 highway to the DTL near the overpass above the PR-177 avenue.

Christian Barrientos, CEO of Abertis Mobility Services, stated: “We can confidently say that individuals driving on the PR-52 highway will benefit from this new access to the DTL once completed, as they will have an alternative entrance point that may save valuable minutes from their commute time.”

This new collaboration builds on Emovis’ work with Metropistas since 2015. Among the projects during that time have been the implementation of 16 electronic toll gates distributed along the PR 22 highway; renovation and operation of three dynamic toll lane gantries on PR-22; replacement of over 120 cameras with the latest cutting-edge technology; and deployment of a new tolling roadside system for a major bridge.
