Where can you get RFID stickers installed for cashless highway transactions?

Updated Sep 14, 2020 | Same topic: Automotive FYIs
Skyway, SLEX, TPLEX, STAR, and NAIAX will go cashless by November 2.

The way we live will never be the same as long as the threat brought upon by the COVID-19 virus is present. Everyone is finding ways on how to limit the transmission of the virus while at the same time looking for possibilities that will keep the economy going.

As such, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) announced that cashless toll collection will be implemented by November 2, 2020.

San Miguel Corporation (SMC) said that its tollways are ready to implement cashless toll collection by November as per DOTr’s order. SMC also sees this strategy as a means to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19.

SMC ready to go cashless

San Miguel Corp. is all set to implement a cashless toll collection by November 2

Starting November 2, 2020, SMC confirmed that cashless toll collection will be implemented at the Skyway system, NAIA Expressway (NAIAX), South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), Southern Tagalog Arterial Road (STAR) tollway, and Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX).

“We have completed the reconfiguration of these cashless lanes to help ensure a smooth transition and hopefully, minimal delays for motorists. Implementing this measure is a priority for us because it is in line with government health regulations and it will better protect both our motorists and expressway employees,” said SMC president Ramon S. Ang.

Ang added that the Skyway now has 130 Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) capable lanes while there are now 134 lanes at SLEX, 36 lanes at NAIAX, and 58 lanes at STAR. On the other hand, TPLEX currently has 37 ETC lanes but it is being upgraded to 52.
