We only have a few weeks to go before major expressways completely shift to cashless transactions under the orders of the Department of Transportation. If you haven’t gotten ahold of RFIDs for your cars yet by now, you might want to get on top of that.
Now, assuming you’ve already had your Autosweep and Easytrip tags installed, we reckon you still have one important question remaining, especially if you’re a first-time RFID user: “Where can I reload my RFID?” Well, since that’s one of the most common queries going these days, we’ve decided to help you guys out by compiling everything you need to know about reloading your RFIDs here.
For the purpose of this article, we’re going to focus on Autosweep RFIDs first. Just in case you need a refresher, these are the ones used along tollways operated by the San Miguel Corporation: South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), Skyway, Tarlac–Pangasinan–La Union Expressway (TPLEX), NAIA Expressway, and STAR Tollway.
