Cavite expressway to deploy e-tap card

The operator of the Cavite Expressway (Cavitex) has announced that it will be implementing the “E-Tap Card”, a pre-paid stored value smartcard that uses contact-less technology.

“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,” said Andrew D. Deyto, president and general manager of Cavitex Infrastructure Corporation.

“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,” Deyto added.

The Cavitex operator said 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, it said.
