Cashless toll payment systems have been a reliable and convenient partner of most highway drivers for years. Since 2005, battery-powered Easytrip tags have been used by several drivers traversing the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX). The said ticketing medium will then be phased out by September 20 this year, as NLEX Corporation plans to utilize the Radio Frequency Identification or RFID platform as its new cashless payment system.
Given the upcoming transition, current Easytrip tag users are assured that any remaining account balance will therefore be carried over to the new RFID system. Notably, NLEX Corporation will install the RFID stickers on either the vehicle’s windshield or headlights.
Through this strategic move, NLEX is set to deliver local motorists that improved journey not only through its enhanced infrastructures, rather drivers will also be pleased by the hassle-free payment method as supported by the RFID platform.
Apart from the installation sites open to all motorists, RFID stickers are also made available online, wherein buyers can purchase through Shopee and opt to install the stickers themselves through the Stick-It-Yourself RFID. Reloading of the stickers can be done via the Easytrip mobile application and other online reloading partners including PayMaya, Eon, GCash, Bancnet, Mastercard, Visa, UCPB, BPI, Metrobank, BDO, Coins.ph, and Smart Money.
Today we live in the digital age, wherein most of our daily routines revolve around technology. It’s good to see NLEX properly utilizing its RFID platform in order to further enhance the overall journey and experience of local motorists.
