JOHOR BARU: Foreign-registered cars travelling in Singapore will no longer need to install the In-Vehicle Unit (IU) following the Land Transport Authority’s decision to charge a fixed rate of S$10 (RM22) per day for Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) charges. 

The new scheme will free motorists driving foreign-registered cars from having to install or rent the IU should they want to drive into the Central Business District (CBD) and other roads during operating hours on weekdays. 

The fixed rate of S$10 is regardless of the number of times motorists pass through an ERP gantry.  

Under the new system, drivers of foreign-registered vehicles must also pay S$30 (RM66) daily for the Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP), chargeable on weekdays from 2am to 7pm. 

So, foreigners driving into Singapore must fork out S$40 (RM88) daily. Those driving into the island on weekends and Singapore public holidays need not pay charges, said LTA chief executive Ho Meng Kit, in a statement. 

Presently, foreign registered cars must have an IU unit – costing S$151.45 (RM333.19) – and a cash card inserted in it before the vehicle can be driven in the CBD and busy roads. 

The ERP is a system where the amount is deducted automatically from the cash card once the vehicle passes through the ERP gantry.
