PETALING JAYA: Transport Minister Anthony Loke said he will take up the issue of RFID at toll booths with Works Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi, despite the matter not being under his jurisdiction.

Lembaga Lebuhraya is the Malaysian Highway Authority, a statutory body under the Works Ministry.

Alexander Nanta has responded to Loke’s tweet, saying he is aware of the matter. In a tweet today (Jan 12), he said that he has called on all parties involved to hold a discussion as soon as possible.

On Jan 11, former MP Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan described the RFID system as frustrating in a tweet that has received more than 320,000 views.

Some users have responded to tweets by Abdul Rahman and Loke by sharing their own experiences with RFID, describing the system as “confusing”.

Some wanted more RFID lanes to be introduced.

Apart from RFID, users can also make toll payments with Touch ‘n Go cards or SmartTag.

RFID, or radio frequency identification technology, for toll payments was first introduced in Malaysia in 2018.
