The Challenge of Interoperability
Splinteroperability is a word devised to encapsulate the lack of progress towards electronic toll collection (ETC) harmonization in the United States (US) and Mexico. There are currently over five thousand miles of tolled roads and bridges in the two countries with varying degrees of ETC implementation. Despite their distinct transport policies and business cultures, Mexico and the US have experienced a remarkably similar pace and stakeholder dynamic as they independently crawl toward ETC interoperability. The parallel efforts of the two countries to stitch together splintered interests offer lessons learned and opportunities for innovation. Among them, leaders of both sides of the border would be wise to consider the advantages of open systems. The two countries might also look ahead to the challenge of continental interoperability.
