Beating the deadline: How and where to get an EasyTrip/AutoSweep RFID

Last month, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) issued an advisory that moves the start of the mandatory implementation of cashless toll collections on all Luzon toll roads from Nov. 2 to Dec. 1, 2020. The one time extension of the deadline was implemented to give the public more time to install radio-frequency identification (RFIDs) in their vehicles.

While both Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) and the San Miguel Corporation (SMC) have extended the installation of RFID stickers beyond Nov. 2, the two operators are requiring motorists to book an online appointment first before driving to their chosen installation sites.

The pre-registration will allow toll managers to better facilitate the surging demand for installation requests and avoid overcrowding of RFID sticker applicants at the venues. For those who don’t have RFIDs yet, check out how and where to get them below:

For EasyTrip users passing NLEX, SCTEX, Cavitex, CALAX and C5 Southlink

For those who want to use EasyTrip RFIDs, MPTC advises motorists to secure an online appointment first via the Online RFID Reservation and Appointment System (ORRAS). The new system will allow car owners to avoid the lines and longer wait times at installation sites.

Applicants must scan a QR code that leads them to an online registration form. There, they can choose their preferred date and venue for EasyTrip RFID installation. After completing and submitting the form, the booking system will generate a reservation QR code that will be sent to the applicant’s email.

Applicants must show this QR code as proof of reservation to the personnel manning any of the following RFID installation sites: Cavitex Parañaque Plaza (northbound and southbound), C5 South Link (westbound), CALAX Greenfield (Mamplasan), Shell Pamplona Alabang-Zapote Road, Las Piñas City, Shell Panapaan, Bacoor, Cavite (in front of Puregold Bacoor), Shell Real 2, Aguinaldo Highway, Imus, Cavite (near Maynilad – Welcome to Imus Arch) and NLEX Drive and Dine, Canumay West, Valenzuela City. There are also 24/7 installation venues:

  • Bocaue Barrier Lane, Lane X01, NLEX
  • Balintawak Lane, Lane N10, NLEX
  • CIC Customer Service northbound and southbound (ambulant), Cavitex
  • Merville Toll, C5 South Link
  • Taguig Toll Plaza, C5 South Link
  • Mamplasan-Greenfield Customer Service Center (Biñan-bound), CALAX
  • Laguna Boulevard Toll Plaza, CALAX (Class 1 vehicles only)
  • Laguna Technopark Toll Plaza, CALAX (Class 1 vehicles only)

For AutoSweep users passing SLEX, NAIAX, STAR and TPLEX

Meanwhile, those seeking an AutoSweep RFID, must also follow similar steps. First, motorists must go to the AutoSweep appointment link at http://autosweeprfidonline.net/#/appointment.

Once there, they must first choose the installation site (Skyway, NAIA X, SLEX, STAR or TPLEX) and their preferred date and time. After this, motorists will receive further details via email.

AutoSweep RFID installation will be via appointment-basis only and for the motorist’s convenience, AutoSweep has designated several 24/7 installation sites:

  • C5 Customer Service Center southbound, Skyway/NAIAX
  • Old NAIAX Drive-Thru westbound, Skyway/NAIAX
  • Southwoods Toll Plaza northbound, SLEX
  • After Calamba Entry Toll Plaza, SLEX
  • Eton Toll Plaza northbound, SLEX
  • TPLEX Tarlac Main Office northbound, SLEX

Motorists are reminded though, that even if they can still book installation appointments after Dec. 2, car owners without RFIDs entering tollways past the deadline will be ticketed and fined with appropriate penalty for violation.
