To reduce congestion during peak days, PLUS will undertake a few measures in an effort to distribute traffic on highway by offering toll rebate during selected non-peak days and issuing a Travel Time Advisory (TTA).
The Class 1 highway users traveling with the registered PLUSMiles or Touch 'n Go cards will be able to enjoy 20% rebate on their toll fare, when they travel more than 100 kilometres on one of the 4 non-peak days, i.e. 12th,13th, 20th and 21st February. To enjoy the toll rebate, PLUSMiles or Touch 'n Go cardholders are required to register their cards via PLUSMiles portal at www.plusmiles.com.my. The toll rebate, however, is not applicable for toll payments at Penang Bridge, Bangunan Sultan Iskandar, and Tanjung Kupang Toll Plazas.
"The 20 percent toll rebate for transactions via PLUSMiles cards is aimed at distributing traffic and rewarding registered PLUSMiles and Touch 'n Go cardholders for their continuous support," said PLUS Managing Director, Datuk Azman Ismail.
The highway users are still required to pay toll in full on those designated days. The 20 percent toll rebates will be credited in the form of toll reloads into their registered PLUSMiles or Touch 'n Go cards when users top-up their cards at any PLUS customer service centres between 15-March and 14-June 2018.
Separately, PLUS has also issued a Travel Time Advisory (TTA) to help the public to better plan their journey and distribute the traffic to avoid being caught up in the traffic congestion during the upcoming festive season. The TTA, which is for highway travel from 9th to 25th February, aims to distribute the traffic from converging on the highway at the same time as it can contribute to congestion and delays.
According to the TTA issued by PLUS, highway users from Klang Valley heading towards further destinations such as Johor, Perlis, Kedah, Penang and North Perak are advised to enter the highway before 10.00 am, while those heading towards nearer locations such as Negeri Sembilan, Melaka, Central and South Perak are advised to enter the highway after 10.00 am.
"The TTA is designed to prevent traffic heading towards further destinations from converging with those heading to nearer ones," Azman explained.
