The local governments of Bulacan and Pampanga encouraged the public to go for cashless toll payments at North Luzon Expressway and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway to prevent the transmission of coronavirus disease 2019.
NLEX Corp., in dialogs with local government units, discussed the company’s transition to contactless transactions through radio frequency identification or RFID platform in line with the Department of Transportation’s digitalization drive.
RFID is a small, paper-thin and battery-less sticker that is directly mounted onto the vehicle’s windshield or headlight. “We are overwhelmed by the support of our stakeholders in our RFID migration campaign. The RFID eliminates queuing at toll plazas and would help motorists travel with ease. Rest assured that you can count on us to help provide safe, seamless, and efficient expressway services to the public,” said NLEX president and general manager J. Luigi Bautista.
Bautista reminded motorists that battery-powered Easytrip tags in use since 2005 at NLEX and SCTEX would be phased out by Sept. 30 as part of the transition to RFID.
