SKYWAY OPERATOR SAYS 20% OF MOTORISTS STILL WITHOUT RFID STICKERS…
Skyway O&M said Thursday around 20 percent of motorists passing through its toll exit points are still without RFID stickers.
Manuel Bonoan, Skyway O&M Corp president, is urging motorists to have their vehicles installed with RFID tags within the Dec. 1 to Jan. 11 grace period, before the strict implementation of cashless payments in tollways.
“Hinihikayat natin lahat na bigyan ng panahon ito para makabitan ng RFID yung mga sasakyan para tuloy tuloy ang daloy ng trapiko. Patuloy naman po ang mga ginagawa natin para makabitan lahat. In two weeks, sigurado liliit at liliit na po yan,” Bonoan said.
The Jan. 11 deadline refers to the cashless transactions, and not the RFID installation, Bonoan said, adding that installation operations will continue even after the deadline.
RFID tags can be installed in toll plazas which operate 24/7 and RFID sticker caravans.
It can be loaded in toll booths, loading stations in gas stations, and digital platforms such as GCash, PayMaya and ECPay, among others.
