Touch n Go RFID: Have you RFID-ed?

What is RFID?

RFID is a new electronic toll payment system that uses a sticker to pass through toll. The RFID sticker, also called an RFID tag, is unique to each vehicle and is embedded with a radio frequency chip and is affixed to either the windscreen or the headlamp of the vehicle. The sticker will be linked to the Touch ‘n Go eWallet from which the fare will be deducted.

How Does RFID Work?

As the vehicle passes through toll, an overhead scanner reads the radio-frequency from the RFID sticker and charges the toll fare. The toll fare will be deducted from the Touch ‘n Go eWallet which is linked to the sticker.

What if my windscreeen is tinted?

There are 2 requirements needed to be observed when placing the sticker on the vehicle to maintain its optimal performance and tampered-proof / theft-proof integrity:

1. RFID Sticker cannot be placed on tinted windscreen or tinted headlamp. Sticker must be fixed directly onto the glass / surface.

2. The metal content of the windscreen needs to be tested as high metal content will affect the readability of the RFID Sticker

Our fitment specialist will do the necessary testing and recommend the fitment accordingly. If both characteristics are present on the vehicle, we may not be able to proceed with the RFID fitment on your vehicle.

WHY RFID IS YOUR BEST PAYMENT OPTION?

  • Just a sticker, no batteries required
  • Secure and swift toll payments

I’ve installed and became one of the pilot RFID user since last year. The experience has been awesome! I especially love the reload part where my Touch ‘n Go will auto reload for me without any charges and don’t need to worry of SmartTAG low battery! 🙂

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR RFID?

  • Open to Klang Valley and selected Northern Region highway users who drive privately registered cars, e.g. motorcars, vans, jeeps and pickups (Class 1 vehicles)
  • Must be a registered Touch ‘n Go eWallet user
  • Only applicable to vehicles registered in Malaysia

There’s still lacking of MyRFID dedicated lane. I hate the Touch ‘n Go + MyRFID lane especially as there are still a lot of ppl using Touch ‘n Go at this lane!

Things to note when using RFID

  • Make sure you setup the auto reload function in your Touch ‘n Go ewallet to have a smooth experience. This will ensure you have sufficient balance in your Touch ‘n Go every time you pass toll.
  • Make sure you are not tailgating other car too close in front, especially for those hybrid toll: Smart Tag + MyRFID or Touch ‘n Go + RFID. Once my RFID actually detected before the driver in front scan his Touch ‘n Go card!
  • Make sure your speed limit is below 30km/h

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
