Bestpass introduces new transponder for toll management

March 27, 2015

LOUISVILLE. Bestpass has introduced a new transponder for customers who operate in areas where its E-ZPass is currently accepted.

The new Horizon transponder will allow for single-source toll account management for

major toll facilities not currently part of E-ZPass, the company said. Use of this device could eventually remove the need for five to seven transponders.

The Horizon transponder is currently undergoing testing with early adopter fleets in Kansas and Florida, and once initial testing is complete, fleets including Schneider, Werner, Prime, and many others have committed to deploying the solution, Bestpass said.

“We’re deploying the Horizon transponder so fleets and owner-operators will no longer have to manage, maintain and pay for up to ten different transponders in order to operate on toll facilities regionally and across the country,” said John Andrews, president and CEO. “With this new transponder we can now offer our customers a solution that minimizes transponder requirements, maximizes flexibility and savings, and radically improves our single account, single service center toll management service.”

The company also announced that the Kansas Turnpike and Florida Turnpike, including the range of all other SunPass tolled facilities in Florida, are now part of its network.

By August, Bestpass plans to have toll discount and management programs in place with 99% of all U.S. tolled miles, excluding only a few bridges and HOV lanes.
