CAVITEX partners with TRB to ease tollway payment
Cavite, Philippines. Cavite Infrastructure Corporation (CIC) partners with the Toll Regulatory Board to offer motorists added convenience in toll payment along CAVITEX through its latest toll innovation known as the E-TAP card.
“We are glad to unveil this project in cooperation with CIC. Cavitex is a good starting point in helping us realize the inter-operability of all toll expressways, “said Atty. Edmundo Reyes, Executive Director of the Toll Regulatory Board.
The Cavitex E-Tap Card is a prepaid stored value smartcard that uses Mifare® contactless technology similar to a credit card. “This facility is expected to enhance the speed of paying at the toll ways and is also very convenient because motorists are no longer needed to prepare for small change or wait in queue at the cash lane to complete the transaction. All they have to do is tap the card on the card reader and they’re good to go. And the best part is that the load balance can be seen real time at the tapping point so the amount left in the card is tracked easily and reloading can be done by the teller if needed,” said Andrew D. Deyto, President and General Manager of Cavitex Infrastructure Corporation.
It is easy for motorists to buy and use the E-Tap card. Each time a user taps the card, the card reader will deduct the exact fare from the value stored. Reloading can be done at the toll plaza in on a per hundred denomination.

1. Reload can be done at the dedicated lane found at the toll plaza.
