PrePass Plus: Buckeye Ready

PrePass Plus Weigh Station - Electronic Toll Collection Combo Automatically Interoperable With Ohio E-ZPass

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - October 1, 2009) - As Ohio brings E-ZPass online today, PrePass Plus will be operational for toll payment without any action by its customers. At that time, 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.

"The decision to become interoperable with E-ZPass is a big convenience factor for PrePass trucks using the Ohio Turnpike," said Richard P. Landis, president and CEO of HELP, Inc., the public private partnership that offers the PrePass weigh station technology.

PrePass is a sophisticated 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.
