Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) has partnered with Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) to introduce the ability to reload the Easytrip RFID using the country’s first toll top-up via mobile load service.
With the new service, Smart and TNT customers can reload their Easytrip RFID accounts by typing EASY[DENOM]<SPACE>[12-DIGIT RFID ACCOUNT NUMBER] and sending it to 3279.
Customers can load denominations of PHP 100, PHP 300, PHP 500, or PHP 1,000, and it will be deducted from their prepaid airtime balance if they’re Smart Prepaid or TNT subscribers. For Smart Postpaid customers, it will be charged to their monthly bill.
Subscribers will receive a text message for every successful transaction and will have their Easytrip RFID accounts credited quickly after.
“We’re always looking for innovative ways to serve our customers and make their life simpler and easier. Through our partnership with MPTC, we’re glad to offer our subscribers the added convenience and comfort of being able to reload their Easytrip RFID account anytime and anywhere so they have one less concern on the road.”
Jane J. Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart
The Easytrip RFID can be used on the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX), Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX), and C-5 South Link Expressway.
“Many of us rely on our mobile phones for crucial information and services, so we are glad to team up with Smart to introduce another hassle-free way for users to top up their Easytrip RFID accounts with their Smart or TNT mobile load through a simple message. This way, they may enjoy a smoother and safer journey on our tollways without worrying about not having enough Easytrip load.”
Rodrigo E. Franco, President and CEO of MPTC.
Easytrip RFID users may also reload their accounts via over-the-counter payments at select reloading and installation sites and payment centers, in addition to their Smart Prepaid and Smart Postpaid account.
