The Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) expressed its support for the Department of Transportation (DOTR) following its order requiring tollway users to engage in cashless or contactless transactions to prevent the further spread of the virus and ensure efficient flow of traffic. 

Transportation Sec. Arthur Tugade signed the Department Order 2020-012 last August 13, 2020 and mandated concerned agencies to formulate procedures “to ensure the smooth implementation of the new policy.”

“Our groupwide RFID roll out is on track to comply with D.O. 2020-012 and we will be ready to implement contactless toll payments consistent with the timeline,” MPTC president and CEO Rodrigo E. Franco said. “Our expressway network that includes the North Luzon Expressway, Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, Manila-Cavite Expressway, and Cavite-Laguna Expressway is primed for cashless and contactless transactions within the year.”

Meanwhile, Cavitex Infrastructure Corp. president Roberto Bontia pointed out that the MPTC tollways are technically ready to shift from manual toll collection to full RFID-enabled system. MPTC has also assured that any RFID sticker installed by its provider Easytrip Corporation will be compatible throughout the MPTC network of expressways.
