As someone who lives in Cavite, I always use CAVITEX whenever I go to Metro Manila and back home to Cavite. CAVITEX (or Coastal Road Expressway as we used to call it) is a 14 kilometer expressway linking Metro Manila to the southern province of Cavite in the Philippines. Coming from Metro Manila, it starts from the City of Parañaque, and passes by the Cities of Las Piñas and Bacoor, and ends at the intersection of Tirona Highway and Antero Soriano Highway in the municipality of Kawit, near Aguinaldo Shrine and Museum. Managed and operated by Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), it uses Easytrip RFID.
