The caravans are set up inside the subdivisions once the association confirms a minimum of 100 cars for installation. The residents’ requests are then channeled through the official Facebook page of CALAX (Cavite-Laguna Expressway). Top Bikes Philippines learned that some village associations were only able to get a maximum of 300 stickers. Now, MPT South has decided to ease up with rolling out RFID caravans in its area due to overwhelming demand.
“We are overwhelmed by your response to our RFID CARAVAN Program, and we thank you for your support and interest. However, we regret to inform you that we are fully booked and the RFID caravan is a limited engagement only,” said MPT South in its advisory on social media.
“Amin na lamang ipo-process ang mga pending requests na aming natanggap hanggang October 29,” the statemant added. MPTC is now preparing for the implementation of its Online RFID Reservation and Appointment System, which starts on November 15. This new setup will require applicants to scan a QR code, fill up the registration form online, then choose their preferred date and venue for installation. The system will then confirm the details through email.
We’ve been told that MPTC has received numerous requests from local government units for off-site RFID installations due to the big turnout for the caravan hosted by Mayor Isko Moreno in Manila. Because of this, there now lies a possibility that MPTC will host caravans in other cities soon.
The RFID installation is a continuing process that will extend up to 2021. And as the supply-and-demand situation improves, MPTC may resume the RFID caravan in private subdivisions by January next year.
