Touch ‘n Go has expanded its list of tolled roads that support the PayDirect feature, with the Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge being the latest addition. The company has also rolled out the e-wallet-based toll payment method to one area of the PLUS Highway.

According to the TnG app, PayDirect can now be used for toll fares at the Bangunan Sultan Iskandar (BSI) toll plaza. Other sections of the highway like the Butterworth Kulim Expressway (BKE), Penang Bridge, Jitra (JTR), Kempas (KPS), Malaysia-Singapore Second Link (LINKEDUA) and Seremban Port Dickson Highway (SPDH) will also support PayDirect later on.

With this update, PayDirect is now available at all Klang Valley, Penang and Johor open system tolls, with the exception of the PLUS Highway, Elite Highway, NKVE and LEKAS Highway.

To use PayDirect, you will first need a TnG eWallet account. Next, you must link your Touch n’ Go cards to the eWallet app (up to three allowed). Whenever a linked card is used at any of the listed highways (SmartTAG or by reader), the toll charge will be automatically deducted from the eWallet balance instead of balance on the physical card itself.

In the event there are insufficient funds in the eWallet, the fare will be deducted from the physical card’s balance instead. You can ensure that you have a sufficient balance in your eWallet by enabling the auto-reload feature in the eWallet. whereby funds are automatically added to the eWallet whenever the balance dips below a certain preset amount.

The auto-reload action can be set via phone app, with payment made using a credit or debit card, online banking, as well as TNG Reload PINs with no additional fees.
