Starting from today (Oct 31) all toll roads only accept e-money (effectively ending the use of cash for payments at the toll road exit or entrance gates). This is part of the government’s ambition to create a cashless society (hence becoming a more efficient and transparent society). State road operator Jasa Marga (JSMR) said it is well prepared to face any possible difficulties that may arise during the first fully cashless toll road day in Indonesia. In Jakarta the new cashless toll road system was implemented gradually since mid-September 2017 in an attempt to reduce the “shock”.
