DOTr lists RFID installation sites for cashless toll payments

MANILA – The Department of Transportation (DOTr) on Friday has released a list of installation sites to provide the public with an easy reference on where to get radio-frequency identification (RFID) stickers for cashless transactions on tollways.

In a Facebook post, the DOTr reiterated that all toll expressways will be “100 percent” cashless beginning November 2.

“To recall, the DOTr has released Department Order 2020-012, signed on 13 August 2020 by DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade, which directs concerned agencies of the DOTr, namely the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB), Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), and Land Transportation Office-Philippines (LTO), to map out new processes and procedures to make sure that contactless transactions on toll expressways will be implemented smoothly and swiftly,” the DOTr said.
