The Land Transport Authority has rolled out an update to the OBU’s touchscreen display that allows users to enable or disable their cashcard through a button on the screen, instead of physically removing and replacing their card.

After strong public feedback towards the new OBU, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) have rolled out their first update to the system, the addition of a button on the touchscreen to temporarily disable the CEPAS card payment function. 

This means that motorists will no longer have to reach over and pull out their cashcard from the processing unit should they need to use a complimentary parking ticket when exiting a carpark. 

Furthermore, this feature disables card payments for parking only and ERP charging will not be affected. 

If you elected to forgo the touchscreen display during your OBU installation, don’t worry because you can download and use the Motorist app as an LTA-approved, alternative display for the OBU.
