TransCore completed a landmark conversion of nine NYC bridges and tunnels to all-electronic, cashless tolling three months ahead of an already accelerated 12-month schedule. TransCore achieved the historic industry milestone thanks to construction plan efficiencies and a proven, readily deployable all-electronic toll system, the Infinity Digital Lane SystemTM.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) sought to reduce traffic congestion in and out of New York City while improving driver mobility and safety by modernizing its tolling technology. After designing and successfully deploying MTA’s first AET system on the historic Henry Hudson Bridge, TransCore was selected to convert all remaining bridge and tunnel facilities to AET while adhering to a fast-track design-build schedule that is the most aggressive ever seen in the toll industry.
The MTA, ranked the largest toll agency in the United States, processes over $1.8 billion in annual toll revenues, which made the requirement for its AET system to capture every transaction in a highly accurate and auditable manner a critical aspect in the technology selection process along with TransCore’s proven ability to meet challenging accelerated deployment schedules.
