RFIDs have really innovated the way we use expressways in the Philippines. Still, it comes with a few annoyances that really needs an immediate fix.
For one, you need to have two RFID stickers to use any expressways in the Philippines. There’s EasyTrip for MPTC-made expressways such as NLEX, SCTEX, CALAX, and CAVITEX. The other one is Autosweep for SMC Infrastructure roads such as NAIAX, SKYWAY, SLEX, MCX, TPLEX, and STARTOLL.
This means that drivers and riders will have to apply, reload, and attach two separate RFIDs to their vehicles. This is the reason why a lot of Filipinos are clamoring for a unified system for RFIDs.
One lawmaker is already pushing to unify both Autosweep and EasyTrip to help Filipinos with the hassle of applying and reloading two separate RFIDs account.

Can I use my EasyTrip RFID sticker to Autosweep/SMC tollways?
Yes. The goal of this new feature is to allow EasyTrip users to apply their RFIDs to Autosweep. Once done, your EasyTrip RFID sticker can now be used in SMC tollways that accept Autosweep.
Can I use my EasyTrip wallet load to Autosweep?
Shared wallet load is not available at the moment, but may soon be. While you can use your EasyTrip RFID to Autosweep tollways, they will still have their separate load wallets.
So before you enter a tollway, make sure you check your Autosweep and EasyTrip RFID balance.
What Autosweep SMC tollways I can use my EasyTrip RFID?
Once you’ve enrolled your EasyTrip account to Autosweep, you can now use it for these SMC tollways:
SMC tollways can’t read my EasyTrip RFID. What to do?
If you already enrolled your EasyTrip to Autosweep but your RFID can’t be read on SMC tollways, you can proceed to your nearest Autosweep station and have an Autosweep RFID sticker installed for free.
EasyTrip RFID enrolled to Autosweep is broken. What to do?
Immediately proceed to your nearest Autosweep location to replace your sticker. Then, go to an EasyTrip Customer Service Center to update your account.
Can I remove my existing Autosweep RFID for EasyTrip?
No. Autosweep said that you can’t remove your existing sticker as long as it’s still active and still work on SMC tollways.
But if it’s already broken and can’t be read on SMC tollways, only then you can have your EasyTrip RFID linked to your Autosweep so you’d only be keeping one sticker.
