Touch ‘n Go has increased the number of highways that are PayDirect-enabled to a total of ten, with six more set to join the list in the future. During its initial introduction earlier in February, PayDirect was offered on just three highways – Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE), Kemuning-Shah Alam Highway (LKSA) and the Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel (SMART).

New additions to the list include the Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE), Kajang Dispersal Link Experessway (SILK), Maju Expressway (MEX), Lebuhraya Grand Sepadu (GRANDSEPADU), Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH), Kuala Lumpur-Kuala Selangor Expressway (LATAR) and Cheras-Kajang Highway (GRANDSAGA).

As a refresher, PayDirect allows users to link up to three Touch n’ Go cards to their eWallet app. Once a card is linked to the eWallet, the toll charge will automatically be deducted from the eWallet whenever a linked card is used at a toll booth (either by tapping it on a reader or by using a SmartTAG), without any deductions on the physical card itself.

In the event that the eWallet has insufficient funds, only then will the fare be deduced from the card’s balance. However you can preserve the balance on the card if you enable the auto-reload feature in the eWallet. Reloading the eWallet is done through the phone app via credit or debit card, online banking or TNG Reload PINs with no additional fees.

According to Touch ‘n Go, the Besraya Experessway (BESRAYA), Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP), Kuala Lumpur-Karak Expressway (KLK), New Pantai Expressway (NPE), Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS) and Western KL Traffic Dispersal System (SPRINT) are the other highways that will soon support the feature.
