PrePass Plus announces that customers can now access daily toll transactions
Allows carriers to bill shippers for tolls near-real time
PHOENIX, Ariz. – Sept. 5, 2014 – PrePass® Plus, the electronic toll payment service for commercial trucks, now provides a new service that allows its customers daily access to E-ZPass toll transactions on PrePass.com. The new service was announced by HELP Inc., the non-profit public/private partnership that offers truck safety and efficiency solutions, including the toll pay services and weigh station bypass in 31 states for qualified fleets.
“Customers have asked us to provide access to their trucks’ toll transactions on a real-time basis so that they could include toll costs in their freight bills at the time of billing,” said Karen Rasmussen, President and Chief Executive Officer of HELP Inc. “With this addition, PrePass Plus and tolls-only customers will be able to access their E-ZPass toll transactions not only on a daily basis on PrePass.com, but also under one account log-in. No more having to sync different accounts.”
According to Rasmussen, PrePass Plusis another way HELP Inc.keeps qualified trucks moving safely and efficiently. Pre-paying tolls on more than 80 different turnpikes, toll roads, tunnels and bridges nationwide allows trucks to stay out of the cash lanes, which reduces congestion and the backups at toll plazas that sometimes lead to crashes.
“Throughout the country, HELP Inc. is expanding its PrePass Plus network so trucks will soon be able to bypass additional toll plazas,” she said. “With PrePass Plus, customers can pre-pay tolls, contact us if we need to address toll disputes and do it all under one consolidated billing.”
