Department Order 2020-012 issued by the Department of Transportation directs the implementation of cashless toll collections at all expressways and major toll roads to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in road transportation. It was then announced that the start of the mandatory cashless taransaction in toll expressways will start in November 2.

But to prevent the long queues currently experienced at toll roads because of the rush to get RFID stickers, the Department of Tourism extended the deadline to December 1. The extension is given so that motorists will have more time to have RFID (radio-frequency identification) stickers on their vehicles.

“Sa ngayon, pwede pang magbayad ng cash but after that, patatabihin sila paglagpas ng toll at i-install-an sila ng RFID ,” said DOTr Assistant Secretary Goddes Hope Libiran.

“Secretary Tugade allowed the extension in order to give motorists, especially infrequent toll road users, more time to comply with the department order,” said Toll Regulatory Board Executive Director Abraham Sales who also reiterated that the deadline would no longer be extended beyond December 1. He added that motorists who enter toll expressways with no RFID by December 1 and beyond will be apprehended and issued a citation ticket.

“Iwasan natin yung kung kailan isang linggo na lang, saka tayo magmamadaling magpunta sa installation sites para magpakabit ng RFID. Now, we are extending the deadline to give further consideration. Let us use the extension wisely,” said DOTr Assistant Secretary Mark Steven Pastor.

Earlier, the TRB assured that the two operators and maintenance providers of the country’s toll expressways, the Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. and the San Miguel Corp., are equipped and ready to implement mandatory cashless transactions and have extended the installation of RFID stickers beyond November 2.
