Since the pandemic started, cashless transactions have been a must in most establishments. One that uses cashless transactions nowadays is the toll plazas in various expressways. Although it is not as seamless as it should be since it still faces some minor problems.
For starters, in order to use any expressway in the Philippines, you must have two RFID tags. For expressways built by MPTC, such as NLEX, SCTEX, CALAX, and CAVITEX, there is EasyTrip. For SMC Infrastructure highways like NAIAX, SKYWAY, SLEX, MCX, TPLEX, and STARTOLL, there is also Autosweep.
This is another hassle for drivers since they have to register, reload and maintain two different RFID tags. That is why some Filipinos are asking for a unified system for their RFID tags.
Well thankfully as of January 15, 2023, Autosweep announced that they will be accepting applications from Easytrip users. Here are other things that you should know and do.
