Toll pay thru bKash lets cars pass Hanif Flyover sans stop

From now, customers can pre-purchase toll trips of Mayor Mohammad Hanif Flyover through bKash payment and pass the flyover without stopping anywhere.

While passing the flyover, registered commuters should follow the “t” sign marked lane which lets them pass without halting. They no longer need to stay in queues as the boom bar of the flyover opens automatically after scanning the RFID tag of the approaching vehicle, having available trip. 1 to 100 trips can be purchased through bKash at a time for four wheeler vehicles and above.

The process can be carried out in two steps: registration and adding trips. Customers need to find the ‘Flyover Toll’ in bKash app’s ‘suggestions’ section and register vehicle on the MMHF website- with a nominal registration fee of 100 taka (for each vehicle).

Upon registration, the customer gets an SMS confirmation. A physical RFID tag needs to be placed on the vehicle’s windshield which should be collected from MMHF authority located at Central Plaza, Saidabad Jonopoth More.

Next step is to login to the user account to ‘Add Trip’ from the MMHF website. By selecting ‘Pay With bKash’, entering required trips and giving bKash account number, verification code and PIN, the payment will be successful. Customers can learn more about the toll payment procedure on the website:

However, registered users can see their Recharge History, Deduction History and Process History from the MMHF website.
