The use of electronic toll collection (ETC) devices will be popularized on freeways in central China’s Hubei Province, partly to reduce emissions and logistics costs, according to local authorities on July 5, 2019.

By the end of this year, Hubei will have added 4 million ETC users. ETC devices will have been installed on more than 80 percent of registered automobiles, and more than 90 percent of vehicles on freeways should be able to use the ETC system by year-end.

Installing the ETC devices in automobiles should be free of charge and there must be more service stations for installing the ETC devices.

At present, the number of Hubei's ETC users has stood at 2.616 million, with 32.29 percent of the ETC-equipped registered automobiles, and 37.16 percent of the ETC coverage on freeways.
