100% electronic PLUS tolls

PETALING JAYA, MAR 23: Beginning April 26, all toll transaction on all PLUS highways will be a 100 percent electronically operated.
Beginning that date, there will be no more cash transaction and the public must pay using PLUSMiles and Touch ‘n Go cards or with SmartTAG.
PLUS General Manager, Datuk Azman Ismail said, the last phase of that initiative which will be implemented this coming April 26 will involve 71 toll plazas between Juru and Skudai.
With that, all toll plazas on all PLUS highways will be operated totally electronically. Before this, the same initiative has been implemented on several highways since 2008 by stages.
Based on PLUS’s record, almost 94 percent of vehicles who are using the North-South Expressway between Juru and Skudai are already paying their tolls electronically.
“Hence, we advise the public who are not yet doing so, to purchase the PLUSMiles or Touch ‘n Go card at any PLUS Customer Service Centre along the highway before April 26,” said Azman.
According to Azman, the electronic toll payment system is far more quick and convenient compare to cash payment.
“A SmartTAG Lane can handle 1,000 transactions an hour while a Touch ‘n Go Lane can handle 600 transaction an hour. Cash Lane can only handle 180 transaction an hour,” he said.
Azman added that PLUS is also aggressively and taking several measures to contain and prevent disruptions on the electronic system as what had happened before.
