vice by October, an increase in the number of China’s ETC users will make the 90 percent passage via ETC

a reality by year-end, the action plan said.

Starting from July 1, 2019, the country will strictly implement the poli

cy of granting a discount of no less than 5 percent off expressway tolls for ETC use

rs. By the end of the year, the number of ETC users is expected to top 180 million, the action plan said.

The plan calls for increased investment in building the ETC infrast

ucture to increase the proportion of ETC lanes, which should be no less than 70 percent by

the end of October for big and medium-sized cities, new towns and sites near scenic spots.

Given that some vehicles may not have installed ETC devices by yea

r-end, expressways will still offer some manned lanes, accepting mobile payment.
