Motorists will no longer be inconvenienced by two separate radio frequency identification (RFID) tags as the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) announced that it will be interoperable, accepting only cashless transactions.

“For those using tollways, they have one account and one RFID tag attached to the vehicle,” explained Alvin Carullo, Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) Executive Director.

Carullo stated that all expressways will no longer have toll booths that accept cash transactions for passing motor vehicles. Instead, full cashless payment will be the only accepted method of payment by June. This initiative will render all barriers in toll booths obsolete, ultimately preventing traffic build-up.

Starting January 10, TRB will conduct a dry run of new changes to make two RFIDs readable across both expressways. These expressways are currently operated by San Miguel Corporation (SMC) and Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC). SMC uses AutoSweep, while MPTC uses EasyTrip.

SMC: 

  • South Luzon Expressway
  • Southern Tagalog Arterial Road Tollway
  • Skyway
  • Skyway Stage 3
  • Tarlac Pangasinan La Union Expressway
  • Muntinlupa Cavite Expressway
  • Ninoy Aquino International Airport Expressway

MPTC:

  • North Luzon Expressway
  • NLEX Harbor Link
  • Subic Clark Tarlac Expressway
  • Cavite Laguna Expressway
  • C5 Link
  • Cavite Expressway

TRB aims to fully implement the RFID interoperability program on July this year.

You can register for RFID for free online.
