Better Tech for Better Tolling
The ITRCC has begun to refresh the in-lane toll experience, which will carry out road work into 2023.
This is a complete modernization of all in-lane equipment including new Automatic Toll Payment Machines (ATPMs), new transponder readers, new cameras, and a completely rework of back-office system designed to deliver quality-of-life improvements to toll collectors, customer service agents, and customers alike. Customers will now see the latest in modernized payment methods, including Apple Pay, Google Pay, and the tap-to-pay functionality built into many credit cards, most customers can expect their payment to take three seconds. For drivers with E-ZPass transponders, new E-ZPass readers at toll booths will also provide a more seamless experience with virtually no wait times.
