Touch ‘n Go pilots RFID in Johor

TNG RFID Toll

Following the pilot roll-out in Penang a week ago and the second phase of testing in the Klang Valley, Touch ‘n Go (“TNG”) has started registration for RFID pilot testers in Johor.

The list of TNG RFID-enabled tolls include Lima Kedai, Perling, and Kempas Tol Plaza.

For Johor residents, you can get your vehicles fitted at five fitment centres including:

  • Success Service & Maintenance (Gelang Patah)
  • JJB Auto Service Center (Taman Sri Setia)
  • Pit Stop Auto Care (Bukit Indah 1)
  • Hawk Tyre Service (Tyreplus Desa Tebrau)
  • Hawk Tyre Service (Tyreplus Setia Tropika)

To sign up for the pilot test, head over to TNG’s RFID registration page.

Once you’re accepted into the programme, you’ll need to get the RFID sticker installed at one of the authorised fitment centres listed above. Installation and testing take no longer than 15 minutes.

Note that your vehicle must be registered you (or you’re an authorised driver) and the vehicle must be Malaysian registered.

You will also need to download the Touch ‘n Go app which contains the eWallet. Toll charges are deducted from the eWallet.

TNG RFID installThe RFID sticker is usually installed on the windscreen or headlamp, depending on the optimal position for detection determined by the authorised installer.

For the time being, TnG RFID is free for users.

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a contactless communication technology that facilitates secure authentication and payment transactions. TnG’s RFID system uses a radio frequency chip embedded on a sticker that’s fixed to a vehicle.

When an RFID-enabled vehicle passes through a toll, an overhead scanner reads the radio-frequency signal from the RFID sticker and charges the toll fare. The RFID sticker is linked to a TnG eWallet.

Supported tolls have toll booths marked with RFID signage – usually either a dedicated RFID lane, RFID + Touch ‘n Go or RFID + SmartTAG lane.

TNG targets to roll out RFID officially in January 2019.
