As a reminder, the Seremban-Port Dickson Highway’s Mambau and Lukut tolls are set to switch to all-Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) at noon on June 1, PLUS MD Datuk Noorizah Abdul Hamid has said, Bernama reports.

Yes, from next Monday, only SmartTAG, Touch ‘n Go or PLUSMiles transactions will be accepted at these locations – no cash.

As incentives to go cashless, PLUS is offering RM5-preloaded PLUSMiles cards at a promotional rate of RM5 each (essentially making the card itself free) at both toll plazas from May 1 to August 31. SmartTAGs will also be offered at a promotional rate of RM104.95 (inclusive of GST) from May 1 to June 30.

Additionally, SmartTAGs are available at the customer service centres at the Seremban and Senawang tolls for RM96, Noorizah said in a statement.

That’s not all – a 20% rebate will be offered to Class 1 motorists who pay electronically at Mambau and Lukut tolls between June 1 and September 30. As a result, if you pass through both tolls daily, you’ll be able to save more than RM48 a month (taking into account a 5% PLUSMiles rebate for a minimum toll payment of RM100 a month).

All-ETC systems are also in place at Batu Tiga and Sungai Rasau on the Federal Highway (November 2014), Perling on the Secondlink Highway (January 2014), Kempas on the NSE (January 2014), Lima Kedai on Linkedua (July 2010), Tanjung Kupang on Linkedua (September 2009) and the Sultan Iskandar Building, CIQ (December 2008).
