MANILA - San Miguel Corp on Friday said it is extending the issuance and installation of RFID stickers to November 30, following a surge in motorists availing of the contactless toll payment tag.

“By November 2, all lanes at our toll plazas will be fully capable and converted to electronic toll collection, in full compliance with the government’s mandate. However, after careful study and deliberation, and especially in consideration of so many motorists who have not been able to secure an Autosweep RFID account because of the volume of applications we have today, we have decided to extend the deadline to November 30,” San Miguel Corp said in a statement.

“This means that from Nov. 2 to 30, vehicles without RFID will still be allowed to enter the expressways. Hopefully, this will give more time for motorists to get their RFID stickers,” it said.

Government ordered a cashless and contactless toll collection system in expressways to reduce physical contact due to the threat of COVID-19.

The new toll collection system is set to take effect on Nov. 2, 2020.

San Miguel however stressed that after November 30, vehicles without RFID stickers will not be allowed to enter SMC-operated tollways namely Skyway, SLEX, NAIAX, STAR Tollways and TPLEX.

Motorists who do not conform to the government mandate will have to be apprehended and issued a citation ticket, it said.

Additional installation and reloading lanes at toll plaza entry points have been set up.
