TransCore has introduced a new product that allows RVers to travel across the country using one transponder to pay tolls electronically without stopping at a toll booth. RV Toll Pass, with TransCore’s multi-protocol National Pass technology, is available for all RV configurations, including motorhomes and trailers. It also allows users to be tolled at the electronic rate, which is typically lower than the cash or video toll rate.
There are toll roads in 35 states, according to the company. RV Toll Pass is tailored exclusively to the needs of the RV community and features a single transponder and single billing account that can be used across multiple tolling jurisdictions. Moreover, users are only charged for the service in months the transponder is used.
“This technology will change the way RVers use toll roads,” said Don Brady, TransCore’s VP of business development. “Convenience is key as it makes traveling across the country and through heavily tolled regions much easier. Drivers won’t have to worry about cash lanes, getting on the wrong toll road or making sure they have the right transponder for where they’re going.”
The RV Toll Pass has a five-year battery life with typical use. It is available for immediate purchase online from major RV equipment suppliers WESCO Distribution and REV Group Parts.
TransCore also has collaborated with Newmar Corp. to pre-install RV Toll Pass in new RVs. Owners will simply activate the device online.
“This product makes perfect sense for any RVer who is traveling cross country on toll roads,” said John Sammut, VP of sales and marketing for Newmar.
