Singapore is a city-state located at the heart of Southeast Asia.

There are no physical booths on any road in Singapore. It uses an electronic toll collection scheme called Electronic Road Pricing (ERP), adopted to manage traffic congestion. The objective is achieved by drivers paying more tolls when traffic is heavier than usual.

What is an ERP system

The Land Transport Authority implemented the ERP, using smart cards and RFID technology to collect toll charges as vehicles, motorbikes, buses, and HGVs drive through gantries. The gantries are typically located along highways and arterial roads linking to Singapore's Central Area[1] that are frequently congested during peak hours.

How do I pay tolls in Singapore

An In-Vehicle Unit (IU) is affixed to the front widescreen on the driver’s side and a stored-value card is inserted into the IU. The ERP fee is withdrawn from the card right away, so be sure your card (e.g. NETS CashCard or CEPAS Card) has enough money on it.

EZ-Link CEPAS Card,NETS CashCard and NETS FlashPay Card are examples of stored value cards available. You can also use your debit/credit cards to pay the fees without having to worry about maintaining a sufficient balance on your stored-value card. You only need to sign up with the service providers.

How much are the ERP charges

ERP in Singapore costs anything between SGD 0.50 to SGD 3.00 every journey, depending on the time of day and location. The charges are higher between the hours of 7:00 and 9:00 and 17:30 and 18:30 ERP prices are evaluated every quarter and altered according to traffic circumstances during the June and December school holidays.

What time is the ERP charges

On a daily basis, ERP operates only from Mondays to Saturdays, starting from as early as 07:00 until 22:30. ERP is closed on Sundays and public holidays. Also, on the eve of significant public holidays such as Deepavali, Christmas, Chinese New Year, Hari Raya Puasa, and New Year's Day, operation hours end at 13:00.

What happens if you do not pay ERP

An ERP violation notification will be issued if you drive through an ERP gantry without paying. You will then have to pay the ERP charge along with an administrative fee.

An ERP Violation occurs when:

  • Have a defective IU.
  • Store-value card is expired or improperly inserted.
  • There is not enough money in your stored-value card and the backend payment service is not registered.

To drive past operating ERP gantries, all Singapore-registered cars must have an IU installed. If you don't have IU, each operating ERP gantry you drive through will cost you $70.00.

How many ERP are there in Singapore

There are around 78 ERP gantries in all, separated into three traffic areas (arterial roads , city cordons and expressway).
