"Stop-and-go" e-Payment Service at Shing Mun Tunnels

        Motorists are advised that the "stop-and-go" e-payment system will be first introduced at manual toll booths of Shing Mun Tunnels from next Sunday (July 23) to provide motorists with an additional and convenient means of toll payment.

        The "stop-and-go" e-payment system offers four payment methods, i.e. Octopus, Visa payWave, Matercard contactless and UnionPay QuickPass. By using the e-payment system to pay tunnel tolls, motorists can save time from cash counting and changing, providing greater convenience for them.

Two sets of smart card reader panels will be installed at each manual toll booth at Shing Mun Tunnels to facilitate vehicles of different heights. Each smart card reader panel consists of two readers, with one reader supporting Octopus Card and the other supporting contactless credit cards (VISA, Mastercard and UnionPay) issued by local banks.

        The introduction of "stop-and-go" e-payment system primarily gives motorists one more choice of payment method. If they cannot pay toll successfully by tapping their smart card, they can still pay the toll in cash at the manual toll booth.

        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 tentative implementation schedule is set out as below.
