Great news! Touch 'N Go will no longer monopolise highway tolls. Instead, highway users will soon be able to pay tolls with any digital payment provider like e-Wallet, debit card, credit card, or any kind of electronic payment system.

According to Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof, this will depend on when the adoption of the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) reaches a satisfactory rate. On top of that, highway concessionaires will also need to link up with other online payment providers for the implementation to materialise.

"Soon, it will be up to the public to use any digital mode of payment whether you want to use Touch 'n Go eWallet, debit or credit card — Visa or Mastercard — or any kind of (electronic) payment system as long as there's a link available on a (particular) highway," said the minister. Fadillah Yusof said that only one RFID tag will be required for the purpose.

Thus, highway concessionaires have been requested to prepare for the implementation of the multi-lane free flow (MLFF) system by 2025, which will remove toll booths and dedicated lanes in the future. Hopefully, this setup combination will ensure a faster and smoother travel experience on highways.
