Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) will once again make Easytrip RFID stickers available through Shopee and Lazada in the coming weeks, a reliable source within MPTC tells us.

We say ‘again’ because MPTC previously tapped the two online-shopping platforms to give motorists better access to RFID stickers. The setup, however, was eventually paused after motorists who had purchased Easytrip tags online experienced technical glitches due to the improper placement of the RFID stickers on their vehicles.

This issue of self-installation, our source says, has been ironed out by rolling out more detailed instructions on the proper placement of the tags. In addition, our source also warns owners of small-displacement motorbikes—particularly those with engine displacements below 400cc—against buying RFID stickers online and installing them on their units. These two-wheelers are not allowed on tollways.

“Lookout ng patrol namin yun. But if their OR/CR indicates a 400cc displacement kahit [the actual displacement is] lower like the KTM [390 Duke or RC 390, which both have 373cc engines], we will give RFID [stickers],” the MPTC official explains. “Because we will follow the class set by the [Land Transportation Office].”
