Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) gantry fees are a major annoyance for many motorists in Singapore. No wonder they will have a cash card in the in-vehicle units (IUs) on most occasions to pay the ERP charges. With insufficient value in your cash card, approaching the ERP gantry can make you feel jumpy.
Don’t break into a sweat! You can now use ezpay or EZ-Pay to pay ERP charges and drive through ERP gantries without fretting about insufficient funds in your card or having a card in your IU.
What is ezpay?
It is a post-paid cardless payment service offered by EZ-link to motorists in Singapore to pay their ERP and car parking fees automatically.
