How to Obtain an Easytrip RFID Sticker for Your Vehicle
As traffic congestion has become a prevalent concern for drivers in today's world, finding ways to streamline their driving experience has emerged as a top priority. This problem can be addressed by installing an RFID sticker on your vehicle, since this can simplify the process of accessing highway toll booths, parking facilities, and other services requiring identification and payment. This way, it eliminates cash or card transactions and speeds up the line-waiting process. One of the leading providers of RFIDs on expressways in the Philippines is Easytrip.

It offers a range of products that enable motorists traversing MPTC’s network of toll expressways to enjoy seamless and hassle-free travel. Easytrip’s flagship product is the ETC RFID sticker that enables cashless payment in designated toll lanes with ease.
Using the Easytrip RFID Sticker
