Have you tried using the Land Transportation Management System (LTMS) of the Land Transportation Office (LTO)? If you are driving a vehicle or planning to, better register at the agency’s new online portal so transactions can be processed when you visit any of its offices.
The problem is, LTO chief Edgar Galvante revealed that the LTMS cannot process all transactions since their offices, particularly those located in remote provinces, are having issues with Internet connection.
“Mayroon pa rin pong problema sa LTMS Internet connectivity lalung-lalo na po dun sa mga liblib na lugar kung saan mayroon tayong opisina,” Galvante said during the 2022 budget deliberation for the Department of Transportation (DOTr).
According to him, roughly 50% of the LTO’s 374 offices nationwide have fully operational LTMS, so they still rely on the previous service provider for the rest in handling transactions.
The government signed the P8-billion contract agreement for the online portal in May 2018. Representative Bernadette Herrera Dy questioned Galvante why until now the LTMS is not yet fully operational, when in fact it should have been completed in December 2018.
“Hindi namin sina-shutdown yung luma (old offices) hanggang hindi po nakukumpleto yung bago,” the LTO chief told the legislators. He assured them that the agency has yet to pay the new service provider the full amount until the online portal is 100% operational.
“Personally po, hindi matatapos ang istraktura ng bagong IT project within six months dahil ang lawak po ng component nito,” Galvante pointed out. He also failed to give the legislators a timeline for the full implementation of the LTMS.
