Easytrip top-up now possible via Smart load

MANILA, Philippines — Mobile services provider Smart Communications Inc. has partnered with Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. (MPTC) to introduce the country’s first toll top-up via mobile load service.

The new service enables Smart and TNT customers to conveniently reload their Easytrip RFID accounts anytime and anywhere just by sending a text message.

It supports the shift to a cashless system in toll roads for faster, safer and more convenient transactions.

“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,” Smart senior vice president and head of consumer wireless business Jane Basas said.

Customers may load in denominations of P100, P300, P500 or P1,000.

The amount will be deducted from their prepaid airtime balance if they are a Smart prepaid or TNT subscriber, or shall be charged to their monthly bill if they are a Smart postpaid customer.

Subscribers will receive a text message for every successful transaction and will have their Easytrip RFID accounts credited quickly after.

Smart and TNT subscribers can use the Easytrip RFID on the North Luzon Expressway, Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway the Manila-Cavite Expressway, Cavite-Laguna Expressway 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,” MPTC president and CEO Rodrigo Franco said.

Easytrip RFID users can also reload their account through over-the-counter payments at select reloading and installation sites and payment centers, as well as via the Easytrip website using any Visa, Mastercard or Bancnet card.
