Baguio City

In a bid to simplify toll transactions and enhance travel convenience, the Easytrip RFID caravan has made its way to Baguio City. The caravan recently held at the Baguio Convention Center, offered motorists in Northern Luzon an opportunity to experience seamless travel on expressways managed by the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC). The EasyTrip Services Corporation, together with NLEX Corporation, aims to introduce a contactless, cashless, and safe traveling within the tollways.

With funds loaded into their RFID accounts, motorists can pay toll fees without the need for cash, ensuring
uninterrupted driving, according to Reign Rolda, the ESC Corporate Sales Supervisor. The caravan has been warmly received by Baguio residents, as well as visitors from neighboring towns like La Union, because they no longer need to travel long distances just to have RFID installed. As of January 2024, over 3.2 million RFID accounts have
been opened across Luzon, indicating a growing acceptance and adoption of this cashless payment method.

In addition to Baguio, the Easytrip RFID caravan plans to visit more locations across Luzon this year. Moreover, motorists eagerly anticipate the forthcoming merger of EasyTrip RFID and AutoSweep RFID systems, a development poised to reform the process of RFID loading. Currently in the planning stages for implementation, this initiative promises unparalleled convenience for drivers, who will no longer need to manage separate accounts for toll payments.
