PETALING JAYA - A few tolled roads including the East Coast (ECE) and Guthrie Corridor (GCE) Expressways will be offering discounts for road users during Christmas.
In a statement, Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings Sdn Bhd (PROLINTAS) said it was giving a 20 per cent discount to those using the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH), Guthrie Corridor Expressway and Lebuhraya Kemuning-Shah Alam (LKSA) on both Christmas and New Year's Day.
It said that motorists could enjoy the reduction from 6am on Dec 25 to 6am on Dec 26, as well as 6am on Jan 1, 2014 to 6am Jan 2, 2014.
In a Bernama report, Shah Alam Expressway concessionaire Kesas Sdn Bhd said it was offering a 20 per cent toll discount on Christmas Day.
The discount would only be applicable to Class One vehicles on Dec 25 from 12.01am to 11.59pm.
Another Bernama report added that the East Coast Expressway, managed by ANIH Bhd, would be giving a 10 per cent discount to motorists on Dec 25.
Electronic-paying Class One motorists on PLUS Highways on the other hand will be able to enjoy a 10 per cent toll rebate on Christmas Day.
According to a statement on its website, PLUS Malaysia Berhad senior general manager of operations Mohd Zulastri Mohd Amin said the rebate would apply to those using PLUSMiles cards, Touch n' Go cards or the SmartTAG on Dec 25.
"The toll rebate can be enjoyed the whole day and is not restricted to a particular time frame," he said.
Those who use these three methods of payment can redeem their rebate when they reload their respective cards at PLUS customer service centres from Jan 16 to Apr 15 next year.
The toll rebate will not be offered to those paying electronically at the Tanjung Kupang, Bukit Kayu Hitam, Bangunan Sultan Iskandar and the Penang Bridge toll plaza.
An IJM Toll Division spokesperson told The Star that three expressways under its company will not be offering Christmas discounts this year.
Instead, the company, which manages the Sungai Besi (Besraya), Kajang Seremban (Lekas) and New Pantai (NPE) Expressways, said it would be giving a 10 per cent discount to Class One motorists on New Year's Day.
Class One vehicles in Malaysia are vehicles with two axles and three or four wheels, excluding taxis.
