DOTr: Autosweep (SLEX) RFIDs Can Now Be Used on NLEX, SCTEX (w/ Step-by-Step Guide)


Just in time for summer break, the Department of Transporation (DOTr) has announced that Phase 1 of its Toll Interoperability Project is now being implemented. With that, users of Autosweep RFID (SLEX, MCX, Skyway) can now use their RFID tags on the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), SCTEX (Subic-Clark Expressway), and CAVITEX (Cavite Expressway).

However, there is a catch.

Autosweep RFID users cannot simply blitz through the Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) lanes on NLEX, SCTEX, and CAVITEX. The DOTr outlines the following procedure:
  • Head to TOTAL Kawit, Paranaque Southbound POS in Cavitex or Balintawak Customer Service Center in NLEX
  • Handover Autosweep card (not RFID) ESC POS
  • ESC POS will check the following: if there is an existing Easytrip/EasyDrive tag on the vehicle; if the Autosweep tag is working; EPC & TID Numbers of the tag
  • Fill out and sign subscription form, terms, and conditions as well as Auto-debit form (the last one is optional).
  • Pay initial load of P 500.
  • Let ESC POS stick Easytrip account number on Autosweep Card.
  • Wait three (3) days for activation.
The DOTr points out though that cars with dual tags (Easytrip/Easydrive + Autosweep RFID) may continue to use a dual tag set-up or opt to deactivate their Easytrip in lieu for a single tag set-up.

The second phase of the Toll Interoperability Project (Easytrip cards for San Miguel Corporation owned expressways) will be implemented by the first quarter of 2018.

Despite this good news, the DOTr still encourages motorists to maintain both RFIDs in the mean time until the full implementation of the Toll Interoperability Project has been completed.

  1. Bakit kelangan pa magbago ng proceso eh pareho lng din naman pala. Dapat inayos na nila para diretso ka na lng pag may Autosweep RFID ka na.

  2. Kung makareklamo... tsk. Shempre kailangan pa din ng process para makuha ang account info para sa interoperability. Yung RFID Autosweep, may account ka na. Yung isa, wala pa.

  7. Sana online application na lang at activation para less hassle. Para di na kailangang physical appearance pa para lang ma consolidate ang mga toll gate devices. Easier process will make this work.

  12. Nasa Parallel phase palang po kasi ang implementation...so maintain 2 RF Id's...after phase II fully implementation...1 account nalang po. Ganyan po talaga sa umpisa. konting hassle.

  13. Different Companies, different System, medyo mahirap pag-isahin ang reloading nyan. Ang mahalaga mababasa ang RFID nung isa dun sa kabila. Need pa talaga enroll. Once lang naman yun enrollment.

  16. Napa register ko na autosweep ko for easytrip account. Nung dumaan ako sa cavitex, hindi mabasa rfid ko. nakalagay pa sa toll gate lane "accepts autosweep rfid". Sabi ng tao sa total kawit, hindi daw lahat ng autosweep rfid nababasa ng sensor.. ??? .. refund daw nila or padikit ako ng rfid ng easytrip . kaso bawal naman daw magkatabi dalawang rfid sa headlight ng motor ..
