Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) spokesperson Julius Corpuz on Sunday explained the upcoming two-month dry run for contactless collection starting September 1.

In an interview with Leth Narciso during DZRH’s Maynila Ito ang Pilipinas, Corpuz explained that the said dry run applies only to selected toll plazas.

"Ito ay isang dry run lamang, only on selected toll plaza ang masasama sa dry run. Hindi lahat ay kasama sa dry run," he said.

He said that motorists can easily distinguish toll plazas that are part of the dry run as they can spot the electronic toll collection (ETC) sign.


"Doon naman sa toll plaza na kasama sa dry run, mga magparticpate, makikita ng mga motorista na nakalagay ETC na lahat," Corpuz stated.

He also informed the motorists, who have yet to secure their RFID, about the cash lane where they can pay during the dry run day.

"Nandiyan pa rin ang mga cashlane kung saan itong mga motoristang wala pang RFID ay pwede pa namang magbayad ng cash," he narrates, saying that toll plazas not included in the dry run can still collect toll fees through ETC RFID and cash payment.

"Papayagan naman silang pumasok. Ang mangyayari lamang, bibigyan sila ng direksyon na tumabi muna sa isang ligtas na lugar kung saan sila pwede magbayad ng cash," he clarified.


For the implementation of contactless toll collection, Corpuz said that it will be imposed in batches so toll plazas are not bombarded by the huge number of motorists.

"Para sa mas maayos na pagpapatupad ng dry run, ipapatupad natin in batches para hindi mabulunan ang ating toll plazas sakaling maparami ang mga motoristang dadaan," he added.

Corpuz urged motorists to use RFID for a smooth dry run, and at the same time, they could see the difference and the advantages of contactless toll collection.
