While they are ready for cashless transactions, San Miguel Corp. and Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. extended the issuance of RFID stickers to November to accommodate more motorists.

Motorists entering SMC-operated tollways namely Skyway, South Luzon Expressway, NAIAX, STAR Tollways and TPLEX have until Nov. 30 to secure an AutoSweep RFID tag.

While those entering NLEX, Subic-Clark Tarlac Expressway, Manila-Cavite Expressway , C5 Link and Cavite-Laguna Expressway can have their free stickers installed only until Nov.2.
