Travels along expressways in Northern Luzon and the Manila to Cavite area should soon be much more convenient following an agreement forged between BDO Unibank and Easytrip Services Corp., an electronic payment provider to toll operators.
The partnership with BDO provides that much needed reloading facility that motorists have long been looking for.
Under the memorandum of agreement (MoA), BDO will provide Easytrip’s payment requirements, both to its suppliers and employees, through BDO’s check printing and ATM payroll services. In addition, BDO executive vice president and Transaction Banking head Edwin Romualdo Reyes said the benefit extends to the motorists-users of radio frequency ID (RFID) stickers who regularly travel along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) and Manila-Cavitex Expressway (Cavitex).
The BDO-Easytrip agreement allows easy reloading of RFID stickers through BDO’s online and mobile bills payment facility, including over-the-counter payments at the nearest BDO branch via the bills payment facility. The RFID stickers, dubbed as Easydrive, are interoperable within NLEX, SCTEX and Cavitex.
“The MoA between BDO Unibank and Easytrip Services Corp. can help not only Easytrip, but also its 500,000 motorists who are RFID users, in conveniently reloading their RFID cards though BDO’s bills payment service,” he said.
BDO has been Easytrip’s partner bank for cash management services since early 2017, from deposit pickup to collections from their customers and to payments to their employees and suppliers.
Easytrip president Eugene Antonio said the partnership with BDO provides that much needed reloading facility that motorists have long been looking for.
