Don't Panic: RFID Installation Will Continue After December 1


Still waiting to get your Autosweep RFID or EasyTrip RFID? No need to panic if you can’t get one beyond December 1, 2020, says the Department of Transportation (DOTr).

With the DOTr mandating the shift to cashless payment at toll roads surrounding Metro Manila, long queues and buggy appointment systems have caused frustration with the two electronic toll collection providers. That said, the DOTr reiterates that the December 1 deadline simply means a move to full cashless transactions. RFID installation will continue beyond December 1.

The DOTr reiterates that the installation of RFID stickers will continue as a regular program for first-time motorists, new cars, or anyone who will use any tollway for the first time even after December 1. The deadline set by the government agency only signifies the start of the implementation of full cashless transactions at expressways.

Earlier, the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB), an attached agency of the DoTr which supervises the operations of toll roads, said the MPTC and SMC are equipped and are ready to implement the DoTr order and have likewise respectively extended the installation of RFID stickers beyond November 2, 2020.

Further, according to the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) set by the TRB, Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) Tag or RFID installation/registration and account reloading/balance verification stations shall be set up in various strategic areas and locations. This can be accessed at all entries to expressways as well as other sites such as convenience stores, malls, online stores, banks, and even electronic wallets.

The TRB has also directed stakeholders to ensure the fast and convenient installation of the RFID stickers by reducing the needed documents to a bare minimum, offering free installation services, and providing an initial minimum toll fee load requirement for activation of the motorist’s account. The load shall have no expiration as well.

So, if you are a vehicle owner and a frequent road user, you should keep in mind that the December 1 deadline only marks the start of cashless transactions at the tollways, but does not mean the end of RFID sticker installations. There is no need to panic.

Having said that, if you plan to enter any expressway after the deadline without the appropriate RFID installed, you will be fined and ticketed.

  1. For the convenience of motorists (aka their customers), they should push on providing more and more and again more installation, outlets in Malls, subdivision sites, etc. to accommodate the sheer volume of applicants.

    1. The most practical solution. Correct! Offer both north and south RFID stickers in all sm malls

    2. Yes, the best and convenient way is they should put up dealership on all gasoline station so you can buy the rfid sticker as you fuel up.

  2. There should be a consideration for us passing NLEX/SLEX after December 1 not be be fined or ticketed if we are unable to find BOOKING before December 1. It's not our fault if there's no available date and time and if they cannot accommodate everyone before the said date. We can show our schedule date and they should be aware of this scenario

  4. Malls as well as City Centers as well as City and Municipal Halls. MPTC & SMC should and must consider convenience and accessibility to motorists by.

  5. Yes it would be easy if they will imposed to other nearby Malls or Authorized Gas Stations within or outside Metro Manila to cater all those motorist who doesn't have an RFID especially in SLEX. This would help to speed up the distribution of RFID sticker and motorist may visit the nearby malls or gas station. They will allot atleast max.of 200 to 300 RFID stickers for each location per day as suggested. Thank you.

  8. Autosweep online registration is a pain. I was able to register on December 5 and then again on December 12 as I did not receive any email confirmation number. Still have not received one till now. When I check again the site the only available slots are after January. Di ba ang galing nila? 😠

  9. I was able to get an appointment for RFID stickering on Dec.2 and Dec. 3, at the Filinvest Tollgate. However, I live in Laa Piñas and I have to ENTER SLEX at Sucat to get to the Filinvest tollgate which is after the Filinvest exit. Will I be fined upon entering Sucat?How do go about this without being fined?

  13. Tap all major gas stations for appointment and have train personnel to do it. This will definitely help motorist the inconvenience of traveling only to a few appointed centers.

  14. The problem is they should produce more sticker and more people to install the sticker.so that no more long cues and no more cutoff time.motorists are willing to follow but if there is no more sticker,and only 1 person is installing.thats the start to pile up the line

  15. Bring it to the people to all brgys or to all gasoline stations malls etc..

  16. SMC must provide more Autosweep RFID installation outlets at all Petron Gas Station.

    1. Makakapasok naman kayo kahit walang RFID dahil required lang ito on exit tolls. Basta make sure na may appointment kayo with your respective installation sites (tolls or Kiosks) para bago kayo lumabas ng toll exit nyo meron na kayong RFID sticker.

    2. hindi din ba kailangan iscan ang sasakyan sa pagpasok ng slex? Kasi pano nila malalaman ang babayaran mo sa exit kung di nila alam saan ka pumasok?

  21. Hindi nagrereply ng email sa application ko noon pang November 7 pa.Pahirap ho i follow up ang application ko?

  22. Why doesn't the government just move the Dec 1 deadline since there are still issues on the readiness of both implementation machineries and people/offices expected to comply? There is also the Christmas rush to reckon with as well as pandemic conditions that are still quite restrictive, not to mention, successive typhoons. This suggestion shall mean efficiency in implementation. 2021 is just around the corner anyway.

  25. I think they should extend the deadline because there are millions of vehicles plying in and out of metro manila maybe until next year in order for them to accommodate all the vehicles

  29. No need to panic? All appointments availability are way beyond the deadline of Dec 1. So bayad na lang ng fine, wag magpanic? As if 3k is a small amount of money

  30. How about those who are in the provinces? Medical frontliner ako, wala halos oras para asikasuhin ang RFID dahil halos wala na kaming pahinga sa covid ward. Parating sana pamilya ko ngaung december pero probelma ang RFID na yan. Dince mag-start itong letseng pandemic na ito di ko na nakita anv mga anak ko, at dahil sa sakit ng ulo na pagpapaschedule na yan at limited area para magpa-install ng RFID ay baka hindi ko pa makita ang mga anak ko. Wala na ba talagang konsiderasyon ang gobyerno natin? Nasa gitna tayo ng pandemya at ibat ibang krisis tapos dagdag pang problema ang RFID na ito. Ok lang naman na i-implement na nila yan, pero gawin naman nilang mas accessible at mas madali ang proseso para sa mga tao.

  33. mas ok siguro sa LTO branches lagyn din nila ng installation of rfid pra kpag ngprehstro ksbay n abg pag install

    ReplyDelete
  34. Why bother pushing the people to register online when there are no more available slots? Why not put the installation of rfid in accessible areas like malls and gasoline stations, in that way everybody can avail and better remove the online if you can't give slots.

  35. How can you install RFID at locations inside SLEX, STAR, etc if you can't enter those highways on Dec 1 onwards?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Kung ito isinabay sa smoke emission testing o rehistro ng sasakyan, hindi tayo naghahabol ngayon. Ang gusto kasi nila tayo ang pupunta sa kanila para sa negosyo nila.

    ReplyDelete
  37. As of this writing,Nov 20, 2020. no more available slots (South route) until Jan 19, 2021.
    So ibig sabihin yun mga walang rfid, its either mag long route (if there's any) o mag bayad fine, ng dahil sa limited capacity ng implementing bodies na mag accommodate.? c'mon. Stupidity at its finest.

    1. But when you clicked on January 19 or succeeding dates after that..onwards....response is date is not available.
      How to book kaya?

  38. Please move the deadline. We have been trying to book tirelessly since Nov 4 however all slots in all areas are already filled. Also please have more distribution areas within Tagaytay area not only on tollgates but maybe within city gas stations / malls. GUSTO NAMEN KUMUHA NG RFID PERO PAANO? BAKIT NINYO KAME TITIKITAN KUNG DI NAMEN KASALANAN NA KAUNTI AT PUNO NA YUNG DISTRIBUTION SITES NINYO?!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Actually I tried to book and look for dates na available. Up to March 2025 is not available!!!. Can't they allow to put some sense into this installation of RFID's.? Pinahihirapan nila car owners. You thought that online booking is easy and more convenient? This is good if working properly. S via online.O difficult to get a date
