You Will Soon Be Able To Link Your TNG RFID To More Payment Options
Highway cruising is about to get more convenient.
PLUS has announced a new collaboration that will offer Malaysians additional cashless payment options at toll plazas via the TNG RFID tag.
More payment options for TNG RFID
Unlike the current test system, which only allows users to link their TNG RFID to the TNG e-wallet, the new system will allow users to link their RFID to bank accounts, credit cards and debit cards.
This will be available at 10 open system toll plazas at PLUS expressways by January 1 2020, and at 83 closed system toll plazas by April 1, 2020.
What is an open system toll plaza?
An open system toll plaza charges you for travelling on a specific section of the highway. Toll rates are fixed based on your vehicle class. This is common for most highways in the Klang Valley.
On the other hand, a closed system toll plaza charges you based on your entry and exit points.
Can you still use TNG card and SmartTAG?
While RFID-driven payment is eventually expected to replace the TNG card, PLUS has assured that both TNG card and SmartTAG users will not experience any disruptions next year.
