Residents of Manila that have yet to get an Easytrip RFID sticker installed on their vehicles will get a chance to have one this weekend. Better yet, they won't even have to drive too far.
Manila Mayor Francisco 'Isko Moreno' Domagoso announced that the city government will hold a drive-thru installation of Easytrip RFID stickers for all city residents. The event will take place from October 31 to November 1 from 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM at the Kartilya ng Katipunan beside the Manila City Hall. It will be open to Class 1 vehicles only, meaning no trucks or buses. Motorists are not required to bring any type of documents as they will only need to pay PhP 200 for the initial load of the RFID.
For Domagoso, he is hoping that the drive-thru installation will help reduce traffic jams in the different tollgates, as well as shorten the waiting time of passengers.
“Sa pakikipagtulungan ng NLEX, SCTEX, CAVITEX, at CALAX, itong tinatawag na Easytrip RFID, merong magaganap na drive-through installation,” said Domagoso.

Motorists that plan to get an RFID sticker tomorrow or on Sunday are required to wear a face shield and face mask while at the drive-thru. As mentioned earlier, Class 2 and Class 3 vehicles are not included in the RFID drive-thru installation. Instead, they are advised to directly message MPTC in order to schedule the installation of RFIDs on their vehicles.
With the Department of Transportation (DOTr) moving the cashless toll deadline to December 1, motorists now have more time to get an AutoSweep and EasyTrip RFID sticker. As a reminder, the former is valid in SLEX, Skyway, NAIAX, MCX, STAR Tollway, and TPLEX. On the other hand, the latter can only be used in NLEX, NLEX Harbor Link, C5 Link, SCTEX, CAVITEX, and CALAX.
