  • Show your school ID and SFRT to the security guard at the service/staff gate.
  • Before leaving the station, students have to show their school ID to the security guard at the service/staff gate and surrender their SFRT at the designated drop box.

For lost SFRT, there will be a penalty of P30.00.—AAC
