Global payment technology firm Visa has joined hands with PLUS Malaysia Berhad in the PLUS RFID programme, a pilot public programme to modernise toll payments in Malaysia. Through this partnership, Visa will be sharing its technological expertise and know-how in contactless digital payments to the programme, which will offer an open payment system at the Penang Bridge, Butterworth-Kulim Expressway (also known as BKE) and Jitra toll plazas beginning 15 December 2018. PLUS RFID features an open payment system which offers flexibility and freedom for Malaysian drivers to pay toll via credit and debit cards. Ultimately, PLUS hopes this will lead to lesser congestion at the toll plazas by minimising delays caused by insufficient balance or failure to top up. The PLUS RFID tag, which is directly linked to drivers’ credit and debit card accounts, will be given free to Malaysian drivers participating in the public pilot programme at Penang Bridge, BKE and Jitra which kicks off 15 December 2018.
