Way back when, tollway operators made use of DSRC tags for electronic toll collection. But with the advent of RFID technology, major expressways started replacing these bulky physical tags with the stickers we normally see today.
These days, only a few tollways like the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) still use the old DSRC tags. That will soon change, though, as the Easytrip Services Corporation has just announced that it will be phasing out its old Easytrip tags on September 30, 2020.
This means that those of you who are still using those old tags should convert to the new RFID stickers pretty soon. As for the remaining balance in your old account, you can have this transferred to a new account at any NLEX Customer Service Center or Easytrip station. You can check out the official announcement below:
On the other hand, in case you have neither the old tag nor the new stickers, then take note that you can already apply for your own stick-it-yourself Easytrip RFID online. This can be used along NLEX and SCTEX, as well as the NLEX Harbor Link, C5 South Link, Cavite-Manila Expressway, and the Cavite-Laguna Expressway. Read more details about that one here.
