ETC lanes are for vehicles with RFID sticker tags

Operators of the Skyway System and the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) announced that they will open more Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) lanes to allow motorists to experience the benefits of the cashless payment.

ETC lanes are primarily for vehicles using the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) sticker tags that is said to yield faster transaction along Skyway and SLEX.

Motorists can avail of the RFID sticker tags at the SLEX office in Calamba, Laguna or at the Skyway office in Bicutan, Parañaque. RFID sticker tags are also available at 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.

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).

On the other hand, the e-pass will no longer be accepted in SLEX and Skyway starting April 1, 2016 to make way for the new Auto Sweep RFID ETC system. All e-pass users are advised to convert their accounts to RFID on or before March 31, 2016.
