Starting today, August 3, 2023, motorists can pay toll charges using credit or debit cards at the Putrajaya toll plaza on the Maju Expressway (MEX). The MEX highway is one of the 12 highways chosen by the Ministry of Works (KKR) to implement the open payment system, which is planned to launch this coming September.
Pilot tests for the open toll payment system were conducted at the MEX highway yesterday using debit and credit cards across six lanes at the toll plaza, making the highway operator one of the first to implement the system. The tests were also monitored by the Works Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi, who said that the system had been tested since July this year to ensure the smoothness of its operation and is up to the standards set by the Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM).
With the open toll payment system, motorists are given a choice to pay toll charges using debit and credit cards. This is in addition to the existing payment methods like Touch ‘n Go, SmartTag, and radio frequency identification (MyRFID).
The open toll payment methods will be provided throughout 25 Touch ‘n Go lanes throughout three toll plazas managed by MEX, starting September this year. This includes Salak Selatan toll plaza, Putrajaya toll plaza and Seri Kembangan toll plaza.
