Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) is an electronic system of road pricing. It uses a dedicated short-range radio communication system to deduct ERP charges from smart-cards inserted in the in-vehicle units of vehicles each time they pass a pricing point when the system is in operation. The pay-when-you-use principle helps make motorist more aware of the true cost of driving. This way, road usage can be optimized. Charges are levied on a per-pass basis and can vary according to time and congestion levels. The charge passing through a gantry depends on the location and time, the peak hour being the most expensive.

A device known as an In-vehicle Unit (IU) is affixed on the lower right corner of the front windscreen of all cars within sight of the driver, in which a stored-value card, the CashCard, is inserted for payment of the road usage charges & parking costs (applicable for most shopping centres & some public car parks).
Cards can be topped up at any ATM displaying the cash card logo, 7-11 convenience stores, AXS Stations, Selected Service Stations and at top up machines in parking stations.
