Ohio gets up to speed
with PrePass Plus system
Oct 7, 2009 1:45 PM
Ohio has brought E-ZPass online effective October 1, and PrePass Plus is operational for toll payment without any action by its customers. The PrePass Plus combination weigh station-electronic toll collection (ETC) system will be interoperable for toll payment from Maine to southern Virginia and from Boston to west of Chicago.
PrePass is a system that enables qualified trucks to comply electronically with state safety, registration, and weight requirements at highway speeds using a small in-cab transponder. By avoiding weigh station stops and idling in queues, trucks save time, reduce fuel consumption, and contribute to a cleaner and safer transportation system.
PrePass Plus allows PrePass carriers to use the same in-cab transponder to pay their E-ZPass system tolls electronically, saving them time and making them eligible for toll discounts in some systems.
Beginning in November, PrePass will unveil an expanded suite of services that help truckers manage fleets, control costs, and improve highway safety every day.
