The Hari Raya Aidilfitri season is upon us again, and PLUS has issued a travel time advisory for road users who will be traveling on the highways out of and back into the Klang Valley during this time. Additionally, the highway concessionaire is offering a 30% rebate on toll charges for PLUSMiles cardholders and a 10% rebate for Touch n’ Go users who elect to travel on non-peak days.

The rebate will be available on six non-peak days, which are June 19-21, June 28-29, and July 3, while the travel time advisory spans from June 21 to July 3. Ops Selamat 11, which was announced earlier will take place from June 18 until July 2.

On rebate days, users are still required to pay the toll amounts in full, and the 30% rebate (10% for Touch n’ Go users) will be reloaded into their cards when they are topped up at PLUS customer service centres between July 15 until October 14. Exceptions do apply: the rebates are not offered for payments at Bukit Kayu Hitam, Bangunan Sultan Iskandar, Tanjung Kupang, and Penang Bridge toll plazas.

Despite the reduction, be sure to have sufficient credit in your cards, though, as the reload booths at PLUS toll plazas will be closed during the Raya holiday season from June 22 until July 2. Selected toll plazas with customer service centres will still be open from 7am until 10pm, including weekends and public holidays, along with 9,200 other reload locations.

The highway concessionaire is also fortifying its operations to manage to heightened levels of activity during the festive season, with more staff assigned to its mainline and Traffic Monitoring Centre, plus more PLUSRonda patrol teams and rounds.

There will also be more parking bays, tow trucks and portable toilets at key areas expected to have significantly greater traffic, along with additional food trucks for more refreshments, said PLUS managing director Azman Ismail.
