MANILA - Reloading of radio frequency ID (RFID) stickers for the North Luzon and Cavite expressways can soon be done through BDO's online and mobile bills payment facilities after the bank signed an agreement with electric toll payment provider Easytrip Services Corp.

Under the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), BDO will provide Easytrip's payment requirements to suppliers and employees through check printing and ATM payroll services, BDO said in a statement.

Some 500,000 motorists and RFID users who travel regularly along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) and the Manila-Cavitex Expressway (Cavitex) will also benefit from the agreement, BDO Executive Vice President and Transaction Banking head Edwin Romualdo Reyes said. 

"The MOA between BDO Unibank and Easytrip Services Corp can help not only Easytrip, but also its 500,000 motorists who are RFID users in conveniently reloading their RFID cards though BDO’s bills payment service," Reyes said.

The RFID stickers, called Easydrive, are interoperable within NLEX, SCTEX and Cavitex, the statement said.

The firms, however, did not say when the online and mobile service reloading will commence.
