Ever since our highway service operators implemented the “mandatory” RFID system most motorists have voiced their fair share of concerns and complaints.
Some of the complaints were centered around the RFID stickers, according to most motorists the RFID stickers aren’t easily detected by the cameras, hence sometimes motorists are stuck at toll booths waiting for the boom to be lifted.
Fortunately, one operator seeks to improve its system, specifically Easytrip.
Easytrip vows improvements
According to Easytrip Services Corporation, they will be implementing a series of upgrades and improvements during the second half of 2022.
Specifically, Easytrip wants to improve its RFID sticker and card replacement program for damaged or defective stickers. They say that the new Neology stickers have a higher readability rate and are now available for motorists in need of new stickers.
For those who have unreadable stickers but with positive account balances, they may get their replacements at the Balintawak, Balagtas, Bocaue, Tabang, San Fernando, Tarlac, and Tipo toll lanes on the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and the Parañaque and Kawit toll lanes on the Manila-Cavite Expressway (Cavitex). Those with negative account balances though must proceed to the nearest Easytrip RFID station.
The toll operator will also put up RFID stations that will serve as one-stop shops for its customers. These will be located at NLEX Balintawak, NLEX Tabang, San Fernando, and CALAX Greenfield.
Finally, myeasytrip users will be migrated to the MPT DriveHub app, a dedicated mobile application for both Android and iOS users.
