That said, the 3rd batch of toll plazas will have been added as of today, September 15, 2023. Here’s the list of the new entry and exit points that will be converted to accept only cashless payments.

Compared to the 2nd batch of additional Contactless Toll Collection plazas that were added, this batch includes both Autosweep and EasyTrip RFID tags. If you missed it, you can find the list of the 2nd batch of added toll plazas in this link.
As it has been since the dry run started, vehicles seeking entry (or exit) without the appropriate RFID tags will be led by personnel to a designated RFID installment area. They will be, as the Toll Regulatory Board stated, “persuaded” into having them purchased and installed. As for the toll plazas that are yet to be added, they will continue allowing entry (and exit) by way of RFID tags and cash via cash lanes.
Of course, at this point, everyone is encouraged to have their tags installed to avoid any inconvenience now and later.
We will keep you, our readers, posted as more plazas are added to the Contactless Toll Collection dry run. All expressways will inevitably be shifting to this payment method soon, so it would be prudent to look for where to have RFID tags installed on your vehicles. We’ve put together a guide to make it easier for all of you, and you can find that here.
Sharing is caring, people. And please do get those RFID cards and stickers installed sooner rather than later.
