Faster clearance: RFID lanes at a toll plaza.
— Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR: Road users plying the PLUS-operated highways will be able to use Touch ‘n Go Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology as one of the payment options at its 10 open system toll plazas from Jan 1.

The toll plazas are Jitra and Kempas on the North-South Expressway, Lunas and Kubang Semang (Butterworth-Kulim Expressway), Mambau and Lukut (Seremban-Port Dickson Highway), Perling, Lima Kedai and Tanjung Kupang (Linkedua Highway) and the Penang Bridge.

PLUS chief operating officer Zakaria Ahmad Zabidi said the implementation of the RFID system was expected to smoothen traffic movement along the toll lanes as highway users no longer had to stop and could easily reload their eWallet online.

“It also reduces issues related to insufficient card balance, SmartTAG device or low battery, ” he said in a statement yesterday.

However, he said existing toll payment modes via the Touch ‘n Go card and SmartTAG were still accepted on PLUS highways, while at the Sultan Iskandar Building’s toll plaza, the system could only be used for Road Charges (RFID Vehicle Entry Permit tag) for Singapore-registered vehicles.

PLUS is expected to expand the system to 83 closed highway system toll plazas – based on vehicle class and travel distance – from April 1.

Touch ‘n Go RFID stickers are available at 130 fitment centres and the full list of the centres can be obtained via https://rfidregister.touchngo.com.my/fitment-centres and https://www.tngdigital.com.my/rfid. — Bernama
