Toll Rates in Malaysia for Popular Highways from PLUS to LPT

If you drive in Malaysia, chances are you’ve gone through several toll booths on the Expressways and Highways. However, have you ever wondered what the different highways in Malaysia are and their toll rates? 

Some of the most popular highways in Malaysia include the North-South Expressway (NSE, or better known as PLUS), North Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), and East Coast Expressway (LPT). The toll rates in Malaysia vary between each highway and are determined by your travel distance on the highway and vehicle class. 

You can pay the toll fares using several methods which are Touch ‘n Go card, SmartTag, and RFID. However, from September 2023, you can even use credit and debit cards starting at 12 selected highways. This open payment system is part of the government’s plan to simplify the toll payment process to transition towards a multi-lane fast flow (MLFF) toll collection system.
