Bestpass Inc., providers of single source payment and toll management services to commercial fleets, has introduced its new Horizon transponder at MATS. The company also announced that Kansas and Florida tolling authorities have joined its growing nationwide network.
“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 chief executive officer of Bestpass. “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.”
In conjunction with its E-ZPass compatible transponder, the new Bestpass Horizon transponder will allow for single source toll account management for the major toll facilities not currently part of E-ZPass; eventually removing 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 new solution.
The Bestpass Horizon transponder’s introduction coincides with the planned completion of affiliations with tolling authorities across North America. The addition of the Kansas Turnpike and Florida’s Turnpike, including the range of all other SunPass tolled facilities in Florida, will result in a significant number of toll road miles that are heavily traversed by commercial vehicles being added to the Bestpass service.
