The Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE), which is managed by Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings Sdn Bhd (PROLINTAS), has begun its trial of the open payment system, allowing motorists to pay their toll fees using debit and credit cards. This comes after the system was also enabled on another PROLINTAS-managed highway, the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH), last week.
Group chief executive officer of PROLINTAS, Datuk Mohammad Azlan Abdullah said that the new payment alternatives will be available at three toll plazas along the GCE for Class 1 vehicle motorists, namely the Bukit Jelutong Toll Plaza, the Elmina Toll Plaza, and the Lagong Toll Plaza. As is the case with other highways that have already begun testing the open payment system, there are dedicated lanes that allow these debit and credit card payment options – all of which will be marked with a gantry signboard.
Datuk Mohammad Azlan further said that this initiative will provide greater convenience and flexibility for motorists, which in turn, will contribute to the overall improvement of the nation’s highway industry.
The GCE is the tenth highway to kickstart the testing of the open payment system – out of twelve highways in total that agreed to implement it. The first of the lot to begin its trial was the Kuala Lumpur-Putrajaya Expressway (MEX) in August, and it was quickly followed by several other highways, including the Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP), the Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS), and the New Pantai Expressway (NPE). PROLINTAS’ AKLEH officially began its own testing on 9 September 2023.
