Yay or Nay: Some Skyway Exits to Be Made Exclusive to RFID Users

Might be time for you to get an RFID sticker.

(SPOT.ph) Those living in the South know the pains of driving and commuting to and from the office every day, especially if they work in Makati or Ortigas. For many, the Skyway offers a faster, more convenient route to bypass congested roads in EDSA. But an advisory from the Skyway management revealed that the Dona Soledad and Dr. A. Santos Avenue exits of the roadway will soon be made exclusive to RFID users.

According to the Skyway management, the new policy will be implemented to encourage motorists to use get the RFID sticker, which will, in turn, decongest the roadway's exits.

The advisory regarding the policy reads "Soon," but no announcements about the effectivity of the policy has been made as of writing.

In a Twitter post, Muntinlupa Representative Ruffy Biazon says he's reaching out to the management to address concerns about the new policy, saying it lacks consultation.

The RFID sticker uses radio frequencies to easily transmit data, making toll fee collection easier. Motorists can apply for an RFID through their reloading and installation sites. Those using the e-pass can also migrate to RFID and transfer their remaining balance.
