PLUS Malaysia has announced that it will place personnel at the Bukit Kayu Hitam toll plaza to sell Touch ‘n Go and PLUSMiles card as well as SmartTAG devices prior to adoption of cashless transactions at multiple toll plazas nationwide. Come September 9, a total of 12 toll plazas will switch to the Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system that requires the use of a SmartTAG device, Touch ‘n Go or PLUSMiles card.
