The Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) on Wednesday, January 10, announced the start of the dry-run of its “one Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), one wallet interoperability” project today.

“Mamayang 8 a.m. or 9 a.m., magsisimula na. We are hoping na this will be successful. Ang target natin na sana by July, full implementation of this project will be made by them,” TRB spokesperson Julius Corpuz told DZRH in an interview.

TRB earlier announced that those who are using tollways would have one account accompanied by an RFID tag connected to their vehicle.

The project supports cashless transactions to reduce queues and remove cash transactions in every expressway.

“Isang RFID either for AutoSweep of isang RFID for EasyTrip. I-cross register muna sa kabila kung ano ang napili. At this time, you are maintaining 2 accounts," he said.

"In this phase 3 of our interoperability project, isang sticker na lang, at isang account na lang para hindi na masyadong naguguluhan,” TRB spokesperson added.

Corpuz also said the dry-runs would ensure the smooth transition of the project ahead of its full implementation.

“We are conducting the test muna to make sure na kapag tayo ay nakapagpatupad ay hindi makaranas ng problema. Ang target natin, some time in July If you want to maintain 2 stickers and 2 accounts, wala namang problema yun. You can till use them,” he said.

The TRB director sought the public’s understanding amid the transition phase, citing that “it takes time” following equipment and system replacements.

“Since we are in the transition phase, I hope you will understand na hindi natin pwedeng biglaan 'yan. Because we have to make sure that everything is in place bago gawiin 'yon. It only takes some time kasi you have to replace the equipment, the system,” he said.

“Isang bagay 'yan na nasa programa ng ating tanggpan. Titingnan ang feasibility in implementing it in the soon as possible time,” Corpuz added.
