PILOT testing for the Open Payment System (OPS), a toll collection system using debit cards, credit cards or prepaid is now being conducted at two highways under Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings Sdn Bhd (PROLINTAS) namely the Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE) and the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH).
PROLINTAS group chief executive officer Datuk Mohammad Alan Abdullah said the new toll payment alternative is available for highway users of Class 1 vehicles (cars) at a dedicated lane marked with a new gantry signboard.
“The system is now being implemented at three toll plazas in GCE; Bukit Jelutong Toll Plaza, Elmina Toll Plaza and Lagong Toll Plaza starting Sept 13, 2023.
“Meanwhile, Datuk Keramat Toll Plaza of AKLEH has accepted the new toll payment since Sept 9. One lane at every toll plaza is dedicated for the system in trial complying with the Malaysian Highway Authority’s (MHA) standards,” he said in a statement today.
Mohammad Azlan said it is an addition to the existing toll payment methods such as the Touch ‘n Go card, SmartTag and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).
He said the initiative will provide greater convenience and flexibility for motorists with multiple options for toll payment, which will contribute to the overall improvement of the nation’s highway industry. – Sept 15, 2023
