MMDA Partners with BAYAD CENTER
Have you been apprehended for a traffic violation? Read on!
Last June 9, 2016, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) signed a Memorandum of Agreement with Bayad Center to enable the general public to settle their fines in Bayad Center outlets and Authorized Partner Stores nationwide.
This partnership ultimately provides convenience to motorists who have been fined for violation, since Bayad Center’s network covers virtually all of Metro Manila. Likewise, these additional payment centers will prove extremely beneficial especially on weekends when the agency’s accredited bank (Metrobank) and the MMDA Redemption and Payment Center in Makati are closed.
“We are making available all the facilities near them (violators) to settle the fines immediately and avoid being on the alarm list of government agencies when they are applying for a clearance or renewing their vehicle registration,” said MMDA Chairman Emerson Carlos. He also added, “This is more advantageous to violators who are residing in the provinces since they could settle the fines at the nearest Bayad Centers or Partner Stores in their area.”
“We are glad and honored to be entrusted by MMDA for this responsibility. Tapping Bayad Center not only activates our more than 300 branches in Metro Manila, but all our 4,000-strong Authorized Partner Stores nationwide as well. It’s payment being made available to you anytime, anywhere. Providing convenience to our fellow Filipinos has always been at the forefront of our business, and this partnership only brings us even closer to achieving that objective,” said CIS Bayad Center, Inc. President & CEO Manuel Lorenzo L. Tuason.
With over 1,800 payment collection outlets in Greater Metro Manila alone, Bayad Center and its Authorized Partner Stores, including malls and supermarkets, courier services, pawnshops, and Western Union agents, are strategically located in convergence areas so motorists are now given more options to settle their fines.
Beginning June 20 this year, 10 Bayad Center outlets in different areas in the metro and nearby provinces shall be accepting payments for MMDA. In the coming months, the rest of the Bayad Center outlets and the retail establishments they power with their payment collection system shall also be activated to accept MMDA payments.
