MUST READ: DOTr Implements Partial Interoperability of Toll Systems

The DOTr-TRB, together with expressway operators in the country, has already facilitated the implementation of partial interoperability of toll operations since 20 December 2017.

Under partial interoperability, Autosweep RFID users may already use the same RFID tags in expressways operated by the Manila North Tollways Corporation (MNTC) namely NLEX, CAVITEX, MPCALA and SCTEX, using Easytrip RFID tags. Users would just need to visit a loading kiosk for account registration.

As for expressways owned by San Miguel Corporation (SMC) namely SLEX, STAR, TPLEX and NAIAX, their Autosweep readers are already undergoing modification in order for them to to read Easytrip tags as well. These are expected to be interoperable-ready by first quarter of 2018.

The DOTr-TRB is currently discussing with SMC and the company’s software provider for the earlier re-programming of their system and implementation on their end.

The second phase of the interoperability project will be implemented in March 2018. Under this phase, SMC-operated expressways will be able to read Easytrip RFID tags. However, users would still have to maintain two accounts.

Meanwhile, the third phase will be implemented by September 2018. In this phase, all expressway users can go from North to South with just one account.
