Smart TAG

Posted by Planet Malaysia on June 8, 2006


I purchased a Smart TAG last weekend during on the way back from KLIA Terminal LCC.

Actually I plan to buy Smart TAG long time ago but just because of the timing and location problem. I missed few times when passed by the toll plaza :(

If the goverment would like to promote Smart TAG but how come it’s so difficult to purchase Smart TAG device? If we can get Smart TAG in 7-Eleven, sell around < RM50, or more than 5 Smart TAG lane for every toll plaza then I’m sure we can make traffic smoothly in Toll Plaza. The product is make in Malaysia but why so expensive(RM100 each)? Why so difficult to purchase Smart TAG?

Luckly now’s day I can said it’s a bit easy to purchase or reload Touch ‘N Go.

    Smart TAG is an outdated technology. Try to do some research on the web than you will know.

    Yes you can top-up at the ATM machine but they did charge you 50cent per top-up why? This is no a practical why to promote TNG.

    Compare to HK they call Octopus, they cam top-up every where without charging a single cent why?

    the smart tag promotion campaign=stupid
    why?…i couldn’t find any update news on WHERE & WHEN the sales will be on…each time round there will be “no stocks at the moment”
    everyday i keep update through the website
    (PLUS+TnG)…everyday also mention “wait for this coming August..bla…bla…”…until lah Sept,no more update page about “Smart Tag”….
    where have there gone???…they eat all ahhh…the tag laaaa…..

    Mazz is right, everytime also say no stocks at the moment or when call at the promotion area, they say 100 units finish within 1 hour…
    so ‘laku’ meh ?

    i’m with mazz… the promotion is done badly. why they not supply more stock, mass production can bring down the prices of the device…sigh..consumer is always suffer from this.

    I thought the smart tag is priced at Rm 100 only?

    LIMYS, I bought in June. So I’m not sure what is the latest price. Probably RM 170 is slightly expensive.

    I went a few times this year and the told me to come last week which was the 9 of april then when i went they told me out of stock only coming this week. I when again and told me to come the following week as no more stock. It have been going on like this for the past 2 months. They should at least get more stock and let the public know where and when the product will be available.

    I think they are not interested at all for people to change to smart tag. If not, then why so difficult (if not impossible) to buy one? I even asked my in-laws in Kedah and Penang to buy me one. But every time they go, the same story, ‘no more stock’! So laku eh? If they are serious they should make the tag available in supermarkets, seven 11 outlets or better still the petrol stations. This is what happened when the whole damn thing is monopolised by one company. The gov should allow others to manufacture the tag as well and sell it to the public. Talking about asking the people to switch to smart tag to reduce traffic snarls … its all just talk and no action.

    I saw this a bit late but seriously, all they do most of the time is, “out of stock” campaign instead. The RM50 promotion of the device is just a cock and bull thing, it never happened and none bought for that price. 30,000 units? I don’t think there’s even 3 units nationwide during that so called promo. And that 3 units goes to VVIPs.

    I been there for about 5 time…all the time is telling me out of stock.No matter during promotion or not, same answer.
    Another thing,only PLUS office selling it. =_=”

    The only reason I purchase this dumb item is to have a little convinence NOT to wound down my windows when going thru the toll booth.
    But this dumb item isnt reliable…and does drain the 9V battery heavily.
    Anyway…to send for repairs PLUS advises to go someplace in KL that is jammed, congested…parking is expensive…
    Try to be reasonable when promoting…PLUS …in US, when a passenger vehicle with more than 2(Driver + passenger) persons will be given free pass during peak hours.Even on Sundays you get away free if you drive with more than 2 persons.
    Again this also promotes Car Pooling…
