Installation for the RFID tags were done free of charge for the public pilot programme which began in September 2018, and one million RFID tags were installed in that time. Since February 15 earlier this year, a charge of RM35 is applicable for installation on each vehicle, either on the windscreen or headlamp, and includes a one-time free-of-charge replacement should the tag be damaged by any cause.

Toll transactions using RFID are accepted at virtually all city highways, which include the AKLEH, Besraya, BKE, BORR, DUKE, Guthrie Corridor, Grand Saga, Grand Sepadu, Penang Bridge, Penang second bridge, KESAS, KL-Karak, Latar, LDP, LEKAS (Ampangan plaza only), Second Link, LKSA, MEX, NPE, SILK, Smart Tunnel and Sprint.

Toll collection via RFID has begun at 10 open-toll PLUS highways beginning January 1, 2020, and all 83 closed highway system toll plazas by PLUS will be RFID-enabled by April 1, the highway operator said during the RFID launch in February.
