A new phase beckons for highway users.

Beginning January next year, Touch ‘n Go and key highway concessionaires will use the RFID (radio frequency identification) system for toll payment across all highways in Malaysia   

As for existing T’nG users, not to worry, you can still use your smart tag device at all highways.

However, Touch ‘n Go will no longer sell the device from today.

According to the Star, the system uses a sticker embedded with an RF chip which will be pasted on the vehicle as the company plans to commercialise the RFID system.

Starting September, Touch ‘n Go will be carrying out an extended RFID pilot phase with members of the public who are interested to test the system.

Findings from this pilot phase will help Touch ‘n Go implement any refinements to the RFID system ahead of the full rollout next year.

Those who would like to register their interests as pilot users can submit their contact details to touchngo.com.my.
