Verra Mobility says its pay-as-you-go tolling service can be used on 95% of cashless toll roads and bridges throughout the US without additional hardware, transponders or multiple accounts.
Called Peasy, the digital platform is expected to remove the need for drivers to pre-fund tolling accounts or to submit payments by post.
Peasy is available for drivers who have an existing transponder or toll tag account as well as motorists who do not have an account with a toll authority. Users can add multiple vehicles to a single account while the web and mobile-based account dashboards track toll history and expenses.
Vincent Brigidi, executive vice president of emerging markets for Verra Mobility, says the solution allows drivers to skip the cash lane no matter where or how often they use toll roads.
Drivers can set-up an account by taking a photograph of the vehicle or its number plate. They are charged automatically via their credit card for each toll.
