With the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) in force, some businesses and services are not yet fully operational or permitted. Case in point, dining-in at eateries located at PLUS Rest & Service Areas (R&R) along PLUS highways is prohibited. However, takeaway is allowed and hence the highway concessionaire is encouraging road users to pre-order meals via the PLUS mobile app for convenient pickup along their journey.
You can pre-order food and meals via the PLUS mobile app and the service is available at the Sg. Buloh overhead bridge, R&R Rawang Utara, R&R Dengkil Utara, and R&R Dengkil Selatan.
Available food outlets include Dunkin’ Donuts, A&W, Sate Kajang Hj Samuri, Yik Mun, Harolds Bread, Anaff Kraf, and more.
Unfortunately, the app does not facilitate payment but instead includes a WhatsApp link to respective eateries for you to place your order. For payment, most offer cash or bank-in options, as well as e-wallets like Touch ‘n Go eWallet and QRPay.
Do check individual stores for opening times as well as food preparation time to avoid disappointment.
Download the PLUS mobile app
The mobile app enables you to plan your journey—from finding points of interest along the highway, eateries, or even an R&R for you take a break. It can also calculate toll rates for your trip. The in-app incident feed keeps you informed of any unusual traffic conditions along your route, and a CCTV camera view lets you see what’s ahead.
Inter-state travel still prohibited
Do note that the original MCO interstate travel restriction still stands, and highway customers are only allowed to stop at R&R, lay-by and toll plaza parking areas to rest in their vehicles. They may alight from their vehicles to use the public washroom facilities.
All suraus are closed and petrol stations will only be operating from 6AM to 12 midnight daily.
Some travel allowed
With the looming festive Hari Raya, Kaamatan and Gawai, the government has revisited some of its restrictions of interstate travel and festive visits. The good news is that neighbours and relatives are allowed to visit each other, limited to within the same state. A maximum limit of 20 people is allowed to visit a home at a time.
Interstate travel for Hari Raya, upcoming Kaamatan, and Gawai festivals are still not permitted.
