You may soon be able to pay for PLUS tolls using your debit/credit card 01

PLUS highways is currently conducting pilot examinations of a new toll payment method using debit and credit cards.

Once introduced, users will have a new payment option besides Touch ‘n Go, RFID, and Smart Tag (until end-2023)

There is no word yet on where the tests are conducted or how long tests will be conducted, but a post on their official page says that it’s coming soon.

Credit/debit card payments may soon become possible 

However, with the Ministry of Works (KKR) announcing that they will start phasing out Touch ‘n Go (TnG) and SmartTag lanes along the North-South Highway in favour of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) lanes – it begs the question of how long this payment system will remain relevant. 

Because it still requires the user to touch a scanner with their credit or debit card, no different than a Touch ‘n Go card.

With regard to the RFID toll payment system, which continues to spur debate, PLUS is in the final stages of preparations to introduce its RFID payment system at 83 toll locations between the Juru, Penang and Skudai, Johor stretch of the North-South Highway starting 15-January 2022.

Arvind can't remember a time when he didn't wheel around a HotWheels car. This love evolved into an interest in Tamiya and RC cars and finally the real deal 1:1 scale stuff. Passion finally lead to formal training in Mechanical Engineering. Instead of the bigger picture, he obsesses with the final drive ratio and spring rates of cars and spends the weekends wondering why a Perodua Myvi is so fast.
