Motorists will be seeing more lanes marked as “ETC” or electronic toll collection lanes to allow them to experience the benefits of the latest technologies in cashless or electronic tolling on the Skyway System and the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX). “ETC” lanes are primarily for vehicles using the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) sticker tags that enable faster transaction and safer travel along the Skyway and SLEX. Motorists can avail of the RFID sticker tags at the SLEX Office in Calamba, Skyway Office in Bicutan, Parañaque and selected Petron service stations in Metro Manila. A limited number of RFID stickers are being issued for free and motorists are encouraged to avail of this promotion while there are a few units remaining.
RFID installations in villages and barangays are also ongoing. Companies, villages, subdivisions and organizations may also contact the RFID accounts management group for corporate and fleet servicing at (02)632-3886 or (02)318-TOLL(8655) and/or email at [email protected]
For more details and updates, motorist may also visit the RFID website: www.skywayslexrfid.com.
In another development, effective April 1, 2016, the old e-Pass system will cease to operate. All e-Pass users who want to continue enjoying electronic tolling are requested to convert their accounts to RFID on or before March 31, 2016.
