As the nation continues its transition to easier, tech-enabled travel, MPT Mobility encourages motorists to build good RFID habits to further ease their journeys and enjoy convenience on the road.
“As with your own car, the RFID sticker requires some maintenance,” says Jack L. Coson, President and General Manager of Easytrip. “We [MPT Mobility] are committed to making the overall customer experience convenient, easy, and smooth sailing for all subscribers. Checking, reloading, and overall account management have been made so simple—thanks to the interconnectivity of Easytrip, MPT DriveHub, and MPTC expressways.”
Here are different ways you can make your journey convenient and hassle-free before hitting the road with your Easytrip RFID.
Do It All Online
The easiest way is to download the MPT DriveHub App, sign up, and then link your RFID. It’s your one-stop-shop for all things RFID-related.
If you’re managing a corporate account or have more than three Easytrip RFIDs, you can register via the myeasytrip online platform.
Sidestep Surprises on the Road
Don’t wait until your balance reads insufficient. You can stay one step ahead by checking your balance, checking the toll fees, and reloading your RFID Account through the MPT DriveHub app. Reload the amount you’ll need (minimum P100 for the app, Bayad Online, GCash and Maya) to keep your travels smooth.

Load Up Online or On-site

Otherwise, you may visit Easytrip RFID Stations, Easytrip Kiosks, 7-11, Bayad Center, Touchpay, Cebuana Lhuillier, EC Pay, or The SM Store for an in-person reload experience.
Make sure to keep your contact information up-to-date for account advisories, and to regularly check your Statement of Account (SOA).
Caring for Your RFID
Yes, you do have to look after your RFID—ultimately, it is still an electronic device that should not be handled carelessly. Here are some tips:
- Mind the carwash! If your RFID sticker is on the headlamp, be gentle during car washes. Avoid pointing a high-pressure washer directly at it; this could damage the chip in the card.
- Use mild cleaning materials to avoid damaging the sticker.
- Do not transfer the RFID sticker to a different car or another part of the same car.
- Get regular check-ups when you pop by any Easytrip RFID Station regularly to see if it needs replacement.
If you haven’t gotten your RFID sticker yet, there’s no better time to do so than now. By obtaining an Easytrip RFID sticker, motorists open the doors to swift and efficient passage through MPTC expressways (NLEX, SCTEX, CALAX, and CAVITEX C5 Link). Instead of fumbling for change or lining up with other cash users, it’s just an easy swoop through dedicated RFID lanes.
