The Butterworth Outer Ring Road (BORR), also known as Lingkaran Luar Butterworth (LLR), is the latest highway to support tolled road to support Touch ‘n Go’s PayDirect feature. With it, there are now 18 highways/bridges that fully support the e-wallet-based toll payment method, plus one part of highways operated by PLUS.

For now, only the Bangunan Sultan Iskandar (BSI) accepts PayDirect, but the Butterworth Kulim Expressway (BKE), Penang Bridge, Jitra (JTR), Kempas (KPS), Malaysia-Singapore Second Link (LINKEDUA) and Seremban Port Dickson Highway (SPDH) will join it later on.

To set up PayDirect, you will first need a TnG eWallet account, and must link your Touch n’ Go cards to the eWallet app (up to three allowed). When a linked card is used at any of the listed highways (via 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.

To promote the use of the TnG eWallet, Touch ‘n Go is currently holding a contest offering one whole year’s worth of free toll. The campaign period is from now till July 31, 2019, and you can find out more details here.
