Bestpass Adds Full Toll Coverage in Texas
Bestpass, Inc., a company that provides single-source payment and streamlined toll management services to commercial fleets, today announced that the company will provide its customers with full tolling coverage in Texas.
Bestpass now covers all Texas tolling authorities and facilities, including TxDOT’s TxTag, Harris County Toll Road Authority’s EZ TAG and the North Texas Tollway Authority’s TollTag. Bestpass consolidates all three of the Texas services and integrates them with other tolling services across the country, providing its customers with a single point of contact.
“We are continuously and aggressively expanding our geographic reach to offer our customers a truly national tolling solution,” said John Andrews, president and CEO of Bestpass. “Now we have Texas, and we also recently added coverage in Florida and Kansas. With the addition of Oklahoma in early 2016, we expect to cover 100 percent of major U.S. tolling facilities in the near future.”
Bestpass is in the final stages of actively testing the new service in Texas with its client Werner Enterprises, the first trucking company to use Bestpass to pay for tolls in the state. Bestpass expects to offer Texas coverage to all of its clients within the next month.
“We use Bestpass for most of our toll around the country, so this opportunity to further consolidate our toll-related billing and reporting is yet another way to improve our back office efficiency and avoid additional expense,” said Alicia Rist, manager of driver payroll, permits and tolls at Werner Enterprises. “From what we’ve seen thus far, it also makes things much easier for our drivers out on the road.”
As another component of the company’s expansion strategy, last month Bestpass announced a collaboration with Detroit International Bridge Company, owners of the Ambassador Bridge, to streamline toll service for commercial vehicles using the bridge to travel between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, in Canada.
