2022-Metro Pacific Tollways South Management Corp. (MPT South), a subsidiary of
Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), the toll road development arm of Metro Pacific
Investment Corporation (MPIC), kicks off its road safety advocacy program for 2022 through an
online learning session of its Drayberks and BayaniKa programs for one of its community
partners, the Philippine Multimodal Transport and Logistics Association Inc. (PMTLAI).


DrayBerks, a social advocacy of MPT South, to educate motorists on road safety and show them
how they can take advantage of the safety features of the expressway; while BayaniKa, short for
“Bayani ng Kalsada”, is one of the enviro-safe programs of MPT South to address relevant social
issues. It also aims to reduce and prevent RA 2000 violations on expressways.


The event was attended by different members of the association who expressed their gratitude to
the toll road company.


“Ako po ay nagpapasalamat sa MPT South para sa karagdagang kaalaman patungkol sa mga
regulasyon sa expressway at pagtuturo kung paano ba masiguro ang kaligtasan namin habang
nagmamaneho” said Jenielyn Deluso, Secretary General of Philippine Multimodal Transport and
Logistics Association Inc.


“Drayberks and BayaniKa program play a strong role in ensuring road safety especially now that
we are expecting continued increase in traffic count now that we have eased to Alert Level 1. We
look forward in partnering with our communities, to create more road safety advocates through our
programs, ” said MPT South Spokesperson and Assistant Vice President for Communications
and Stakeholders Management Ms. Arlette V. Capistrano.


MPT South also announced that it plans to roll out more Drayberks and BayaniKa sessions for
2022 through partnership with key stakeholders and transport groups, especially for communities
along its expressways: Manila-Cavite Toll Expressway (CAVITEX) and Cavite-Laguna
Expressway (CALAX).


In 2019, DrayBerks won a Silver Anvil for the 55th Anvil Awards of Public Relations Society of the
Philippines (PRSP), the country’s premier organization for Public Relations professionals.
