HARI RAYA AIDILADHA & MALAYSIA DAY HOLIDAYS: PLUS OFFERS 20 PERCENT TOLL REBATE FOR ELECTRONIC TOLL TRANSACTIONS
PLUS highway users on the North-South Expressway (NSE), North-South Expressway Central Link (ELITE), Malaysia-Singapore Second Crossing (Linkedua) and the Butterworth-Kulim Expressway (BKE) paying toll electronically will be able to enjoy a 20 percent toll rebate in conjunction with Hari Raya Aidiladha and Malaysia Day holidays. PLUS Malaysia Berhad Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Dato' Noorizah Hj Abd Hamid said, "Highway Class 1 users (light vehicles with 2 axles and 3 or 4 wheels except taxi) paying toll electronically via PLUSMiles cards, Touch 'n Go cards or SmartTAGs will be able receive a 20 percent toll rebate for electronic toll transactions on 12 September (Monday) and 16 September (Friday) in conjunction with Hari Raya Aidiladha and Malaysia Day holidays." According to Noorizah, the public paying toll electronically will still be required to pay the full amount on 12 September and 16 September. However, the 20 percent toll rebate (in a form of toll reload) can be redeemed when they reload their electronic cards at all PLUS customer service centres between 15 October 2016 and 14 January 2017. The toll rebate is aimed celebrating Hari Raya Aidiladha and Malaysia Day and is part of an effort to encourage the public to switch to electronic toll payment system which is easier and faster and to spread traffic. "The toll rebate can be enjoyed the whole day and is not restricted to a particular time frame," Noorizah explained. The toll rebate however does not apply at these following toll plazas - Tanjung Kupang, Bukit Kayu Hitam, Bangunan Sultan Iskandar and Penang Bridge. Based on travelling patterns of highway users of past festive seasons, PLUS expects the traffic on the NSE to increase by 15 percent to 1.6 million vehicles every day between 9 September and 19 September 2016 as compared to 1.4 million on normal days.
