In the past few weeks, it has been really tough to get an RFID installed. I’m talking about the RFID from Easytrip, which services the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX), C5 Link, Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), and the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX).

With the cashless-transaction implementation deadline nearing, motorists have flocked to installation sites as early as 4:00 AM. This causes long lines and congestion to the dismay of other road users or those who already availed of their Easytrip RFID at an earlier time.

Don't worry. If your motorcycle still doesn’t have an Easytrip RFID, there are many more places to get your Easytrip RFID installed. In fact, not all of them are along the expressway. You'll find a few within the city long before you have to enter any of these tollways.
