“By eliminating the need for motorists to stop or switch lanes at toll plazas, cashless tolling provides a safer, more convenient way to travel throughout the region,” said Alan Williamson, the Turnpike’s senior engineer project manager.
To implement PTC’s next-generation cashless tolling, TransCore will deploy its Infinity Digital Lane System. The Infinity system integrates automatic vehicle identification, vehicle classification, and video capture and recognition systems specifically designed to automatically collect transactions in high-volume traffic across a wide variety of traffic speeds and patterns with the highest degrees of accuracy in the industry.
The PTC was TransCore’s first customer in 1938 when it provided radio communications for the nation’s first toll road. Since then, TransCore has continuously supported the commission in developing comprehensive and innovative tolling solutions, including designing Pennsylvania’s first electronic toll collection system and first violation enforcement system.
