JCI Alabang and Skyway SLEX RFID will hold an offsite RFID registration on July 18 (Saturday) in District 2 Covered Court, Basilan St, Ayala Alabang. This project is in coordination with Barangay Ayala Alabang. On this day, the Skyway SLEX RFID group will distribute the RFID stickers from 9am-5pm.
The RFID stickers will be free of charge but an initial load of P500 must be loaded per car. This set of Frequently Asked Questions was prepared to answer the commonly asked questions.
What do I need to bring?
Be sure to bring the following items to ensure speedy registration: 1. Subscription Form* 2. Terms and Conditions Form* 3. Valid government issued ID – photocopy only 4. OR/CR – photocopy only 5. At least P500 cash per car (for the initial load) 6. Your cars 7. Authorization letter (if the OR/CR is not under your name)
IMPORTANT: Incomplete forms and requirements will not be processed.
How detailed should the authorization letter be?
The authorization letter should contain the details of the car (plate number, make, color) along with the photocopy of the valid ID of the owner.
How much do I need to pay for the RFID sticker?
The RFID stickers are free for the first 100,000 subscribers. You just need to pay for the initial load of P500 per vehicle. There is also an annual subscription fee of P50 per sticker. The normal cost is P300 (P200 for the sticker, P100 for the RFID card). On Jul 18, all the stickers and RFID are free.
My car is relatively new and doesn’t have the LTO license plate yet. Can I register it for RFID?
Yes, an RFID sticker can be issued for cars without any plates. Kindly bring the photocopy of the invoice and indicate the conduction number.
I have an e-pass. Can I still get an RFID sticker?
You can only use one: RFID or E-pass. Once the RFID sticker is installed, you shouldn’t use your epass anymore. Keeping an e-pass in your vehicle when the RFID sticker is installed will violate the Terms and Conditions. You can also be charged twice so please avoid this.
What will I do with my e-pass once the RFID is installed?
It is recommended that you surrender your E-pass unit at the event. The RFID team will accept the E-pass and facilitate the balance to transferred to your new RFID account within 30 days. If the e-pass is bought within 3 years, there is a small rebate amount that can be credited to your RFID account within 7 days.
Is it true that the E-pass will be phased out?
The RFID system is implemented to replace the E-pass system. There is no definite timeline when the e-pass system will be phased out.
Where can I get the E-pass tag number/account number and subscription date?
You can call the E-pass hotline at 888-8787 to get all those details. Be sure to have at least the tag number to provide them.
Auto Debit Feature – Credit Card
Does the RFID system accommodate the key-in feature offered in e-pass?
No, the RFID system does not offer the key-in feature available in the e-pass system. The system will reload your account once the balance reaches below the threshold set.
I have multiple cars. Do I need to fill out individual forms for them?
You have two options: (1) One account with all the cars there, or (2) Individual accounts for the cars.
For option (1) One account – multiple cars, you need to fill out just one form with all the car details. This will result in one account, multiple cars. One form means one account. This means that you pay only one annual fee per account– P50. For option (2), see the answer below.
I want to have individual separate accounts for my multiple cars. How can I do that?
Option (2) Individual accounts for the cars. You can fill out separate Subscription Forms and Terms and Conditions Forms for each vehicle. This will result with individual accounts for the cars. This also means paying P50 annual fee per RFID account.
Do I need to bring all the cars in the registration venue?
Yes. Only the Skyway SLEX RFID staff can install the RFID stickers to your cars.
Do I need to bring all the cars at the same time in the registration venue?
No, you can bring the cars one at a time as long as you have all the requirements in the first car registered and have chosen to register all cars in one account.
For the 2nd car onwards, you just need to fill out the “ADD RFID tag FORM.”
The subscription form only has space for 6 cars. If I will register more than 6 cars in one account, should I fill out a different form?
No need. Just fill out one subscription form and attach a separate sheet with the car details.
I will register multiple cars in one RFID account. Can I use more than one credit card?
No, only one credit card can be used for one RFID account. If you want to use different credit cards for different cars, you can fill out different subscription forms and terms and conditions per car.
De-activation of RFID
I had the RFID sticker installed. If I sell the car, how can I deactivate it?
If this happens, you should take out the RFID sticker before you sell your car. Be sure to call the RFID hotline (02) 632-3886 to de-activate the sticker to avoid unauthorized use. They can also help you transfer the load to a new account.
I don’t live in the Ayala Alabang Village. Can I get an RFID sticker for my car?
Priority will be given to the Ayala Alabang Village residents for this event. However, you can still go and register your car on the event itself as long as you can gain access to the Ayala Alabang Village.
I don’t live in Ayala Alabang but want to organize a similar event for my village. Who do I talk to?
For now, there are limited offsite activities for RFID registration. Feel free to go to the JCI Alabang offsite registration to see how it goes. You can also contact JCI Alabang Treasurer Janette Lim.

Yes, you can still register your car. However, priority in terms of signing up and allocation of FREE RFID stickers will be given to those who pre-registered. Please bring the filled out forms and the required documents. The list of requirements can be found above.
I registered for priority registration but was late for more than 30 minutes. What will I do?
We will only give priority queuing to priority registrants within 30 minutes of their chosen time slot. If you are late, you will queue normally. If you followed the pre-registration instructions sent Jul 12, the processing time for your request will still be faster than those who didn’t pre-register.
