Touch ‘n Go eWallet has entered into a partnership with Express Rail Link (ERL) to provide a seamless, safe and convenient cashless payment solution for all Malaysians who are heading to and from KLIA/KLIA2.
Ignatius Ong, CEO of TNG Digital Sdn Bhd said, “We are proud to have ERL as our partner as we share a similar vision to revolutionise the mobility category in Malaysia. This partnership is in line with Touch ‘n Go eWallet’s ambition to champion safer and easier cashless transactions across every aspect of transportation for Malaysians, beginning with toll payment to street parking and even transit purchases for a seamless journey.”
To cement the partnership, Touch ‘n Go eWallet is offering a 15% discount on selected KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit adult and child tickets. The offer is also applicable to certain concession fares on KLIA Transit, specifically for Malaysia senior citizens, students with Kad Diskaun Siswa 1Malaysia (KADS1M), as well as differently-abled passengers with OKU cards issued by the Department of Social Welfare Malaysia. The promotion is applicable for over the counter purchases and runs from 1 January until 30 June 2020.
“ERL has been at the forefront of the cashless movement on public transport in Malaysia as we were the first to implement Touch ‘n Go contactless at the gate in 2011. As the fastest airport transfer in town, our partnership with TNG Digital Sdn Bhd fits ERL’s mission to provide a seamless travel experience that is fast, convenient, and now even more affordable. However, the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak has undoubtedly made people more cautious about travelling and commuting on public transport. We are taking all necessary measures to assure them that taking public transportation is safe by tripling the cleaning frequency of high contact areas at stations, and using stronger disinfectants for cleaning and sanitising work. We hope with the precautionary measures in place and this attractive Touch ‘n Go eWallet offer, the public will continue to take the train for their airport transfer and work commuting,” said Noormah Mohd Noor, CEO of ERL.
With over 135,000 merchant acceptance points and growing, Touch ‘n Go eWallet is paving the way for Malaysians to experience a seamless lifestyle through various partnerships for transportation. This includes public transportation booking platforms, food delivery and even car-sharing services. Now, with ERL as the latest transit partner, Touch ‘n Go eWallet users will be able to enjoy a seamless, safer and cheaper train ride.
