Can you use RFID lanes if you have an Easytrip?

There’s ongoing confusion among some motorists when it comes to using the RFID and Easytrip lanes on tollways such as the North Luzon Expressway. 

The indecision on which lanes to use has inevitably led to the buildup of traffic along the expressway, especially during holidays. With some motorists opting to line up at the lanes they’re familiar with, the typical scenario looks like this:

A number of vehicles choose to queue at the Easytrip lanes while the RFID booths are surprisingly empty. Some motorists who know the difference between the two could have easily avoided this. 

So, the question is – can you pass through an RFID booth if you have an Easytrip? Well, that depends on what type of Easytrip you have.

You see, the Easytrip brand has two types of products: a tag and an RFID sticker. If a motorist has an Easytrip tag, he or she can only use the EC/Easytrip lanes. However, if a driver uses an Easytrip RFID sticker, the person can pass through either the EC/Easytrip or RFID lanes.

To put an end to the confusion, the RFID lanes are exclusively for vehicles with an Easytrip RFID sticker while those who have an Easytrip tag and Easytrip RFID sticker can pass through the EC/Easytrip booths.

So there you have it. When you see an empty RFID lane and your vehicle is equipped with an Easytrip RFID sticker, you can pass through either lane to spare yourself from long lines.
