Touch ‘n Go has announced that its PayDirect system is now available on the Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP). This brings the number of highways that are PayDirect-enabled to 11, with five more due to be added in the near future.

Just to recap, PayDirect allows users to link up to three Touch n’ Go cards to their eWallet app. Once linked, the toll fare 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.

If the eWallet has insufficient funds, only then will the fare be deducted from the physical 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.

With LDP now added to the list, the next highways to adopt PayDirect would be the Besraya Experessway (BESRAYA), Kuala Lumpur-Karak Expressway (KLK), New Pantai Expressway (NPE), Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS) and Western KL Traffic Dispersal System (SPRINT).

Besides the LDP, PayDirect is currently available on Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE), Kemuning-Shah Alam Highway (LKSA), the Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel (SMART), 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).
