CCLEX holds off full RFID implementation

The management of the scenic Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) has announced that it will defer its full-RFID implementation.

“We want to address the strong clamor of many motorists to continue to allow them to pass CCLEX while they are complying with our RFID registration and installation. This is also to prevent long queues of motorists in our Customer Service Centers who might be in a rush to get the RFID stickers,” said Cebu Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEC) President and General Manager Allan Alfon.

CCLEC earlier announced that it will implement its full electronic toll collection system on October 1.

“Our CCLEX is designed to operate as an all-electronic toll collection system for a faster and seamless experience when using our modern expressway. This full RFID system is also for the safety of our motorists. We would like to appeal to everyone to get their CCLEX RFIDs now for a faster and seamless CCLEX drive,” Alfon added.

CCLEC started the free installation of CCLEX RFIDs as early as December 2021. It now has registrations of more than 90,000 vehicles. MPT Mobility, the digital innovation arm of Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), developed the MPT DriveHub app that CCLEX users can use to load and reload their RFID accounts.

With MPT DriveHub, motorists can easily register or link their RFID account by simply scanning their CCLEX Card QR Code or inputting their CCLEX Card Number, or registering via email.

The MPT DriveHub not only simplifies the reloading of the account but also allows motorists to monitor in real-time their RFID load. The app also allows motorists to load their accounts using credit and debit cards as well as through e-money services like Maya and GCash.

Motorists who prefer to load their RFID accounts via cash can also visit the CCLEX Customer Service Centers (CSC) which are conveniently located on both sides of the expressway near the toll plaza. At the CCLEX Customer Service Centers, motorists can also reload via debit card, credit card, Maya, and Gcash.
