In response to the call for a more sophisticated and integrated urban mobility system, MPT Mobility has committed to environmental consciousness, evident in initiatives like the gamified “Shoot That Bottle” campaign targeting plastic waste reduction. NLEX Drive & Dine, as MPT Mobility’s venture into retail and dining, transcends being a mere expressway rest stop—it stands as a destination. This establishment plays a crucial role in the group’s overarching efforts to redefine mobility, incorporating digital solutions and mobile technologies to facilitate smoother, more convenient, and controlled travel experiences for Filipinos.
As for its location, NLEX Drive & Dine is situated on a side road leading to Balintawak, approximately 10 minutes’ drive after passing the Meycauayan tollgate. Its convenient positioning makes it easily accessible for a quick dining and shopping experience before heading home from a vacation or road trip.
