Provision of "stop-and-go" e-payment facilities at Shing Mun Tunnels to begin on Sunday
     The Transport Department (TD) today (July 21) reminded the public that the "stop-and-go" e-payment system will be introduced at the manual toll booths of the Shing Mun Tunnels on Sunday (July 23) to provide motorists with an additional and convenient means of toll payment.
     A spokesman for the TD said that the "stop-and-go" e-payment system offers four payment methods, namely Octopus, Visa payWave, Mastercard contactless and UnionPay QuickPass.
     Two sets of smart card reader panels will be installed at each manual toll booth at the Shing Mun Tunnels to serve vehicles of different heights. Each smart card reader panel consists of two readers, with one reader supporting Octopus and the other supporting contactless credit cards (Visa, Mastercard and UnionPay) issued by local banks. There are labels on the respective card readers indicating the card types supported by each reader. Motorists can use their smart card to tap on the reader supporting their smart card for the toll payment.
     The spokesman added that if they cannot pay the toll successfully by tapping their smart card at the manual toll booth, they can either pass the smart card to the toll collector for assistance in tapping it or pay the toll in cash.
     Starting from the end of September, the "stop-and-go" e-payment service will be introduced in phases at the other seven government tolled tunnels and roads, namely Aberdeen Tunnel, Cross-Harbour Tunnel, Tseung Kwan O Tunnel, Lion Rock Tunnel, Tsing Sha Highway, Lantau Link and Eastern Harbour Crossing. The TD will make separate announcements before the implementation of the e-payment service at these government tolled tunnels and roads. 
     Motorists can browse the TD's website (www.td.gov.hk) or call 1823 for enquiries on the operation of the "stop-and-go" e-payment system.
