PLUS have always tried to make paying for tolls a seamless process for the highway users. The payment options have revolutionised from cash to Touch n Go card, to SmartTAG device and recently RFID. The recent technology, RFID is said to replace the use of Smart TAG.
Malaysians are again introduced to a new payment option which is Touch n Go e-wallet but it’s only restricted to a few tolls and highways. Worry not as PLUS is said to come with a new payment option; credit or debit cards.
Flash your debit or credit cards at the tool booths
A local news reported the toll-paying process could become even easier. PLUS will soon allow highway users to pay using their debit, credit cards and e-wallet. All these should be linked to the RFID tags. This new option is a big plus for highway users who are forgetful to reload their Touch n Go card. Simply flash the debit or credit cards and you are ready to go.
An initiative by PLUS to improve their offering
PLUS is currently upgrading its infrastructure nationwide and aims to improve their offering by adding more payment options to highway users. The upgrading process is expected to be completed by the end of the year. Once done, you can link debit and credit cards or any other e-wallet to PLUS’s RFID.
Reduce the congestion at the toll booths
Datuk Azman Ismail, Managing Director of PLUS said this initiative is being done to help reduce the congestion at toll booths which is usually caused by insufficient balance in drivers’ Touch n Go cards when passiong through tolls. With this great initiative of using debit and credit cards, hopefully the problem will be solved and will help reduce congestion.
High Definiton CCTV at PLUS highways
The Managing Director also shared that PLUS will be upgrading 1,400 close-circuit television (CCTV) cameras to models with Ultra HD resolution. It is done to deliver messages and information to motorists in a visual way with accuracy and efficiency which can be viewed by highway users via PLUS app. Currently, about 10% of the CCTV have been upgraded.
