Touch ‘n Go has announced that from Feb 15, its RFID tags will be priced at RM35 for purchase at fitment centres nationwide.
Currently, the RFID tag fees are waived as part of a pilot programme to encourage sign-ups that began in 2018. The RM35 purchase comes with a free first-time replacement on the same vehicle for when users need to get a new RFID tag.
Touch ‘n Go chief executive officer Syahrunizam Samsudin said the company has invested in one million TNG RFID tags for Malaysians during the pilot programme for the past 18 months.
"Now it is time for us to move forward and continue to expand the use of RFID technology together with our partners across the mobility ecosystem. This includes fuelling, parking, and retail drive-thrus," he said in a press statement.
The company’s RFID registration website currently has three fixed fitment centres listed at locations in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur. Users can look for other RFID fixment locations in Johor and other Klang Valley areas on this website.
The RFID tag is placed on a user’s car windscreen or headlamp. Embedded with a radio-frequency chip, the tag is used as an electronic payment system when going through toll plazas.
The company says the RFID system is now live for all Class 1 vehicles in 22 highways including the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH), Penang Bridge (JPP) and Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP).
The RFID tag can be linked to the company’s eWallet where the app can be used for online reloads.
In conjunction with the launch of the RM35 RFID tag from Feb 15 to April 15, Touch ‘n Go announced that 40 users stand a chance to walk away with an Ultimate RFID Toll Pass worth RM2,500 each for its eWallet.
