PrePass saves carriers more than $1 billion

As the PrePass system closes its first decade of operation, its tally of dollar savings for motor carriers passed the billion-dollar level in October 2006.

PrePass is a coast-to-coast system enabling qualified motor carriers to comply electronically with state weight, safety, and credential requirements while traveling at normal highway speeds rather than stopping at state truck inspection facilities. PrePassPLUS is a service that enables users to also pay E-ZPass system tolls electronically. With a monthly toll bill approaching $11 million, PrePassPLUS is believed to be the nation's single largest toll account.

Launched in California in 1995, PrePass is now operational at 263 locations in 26 states. More than 390,000 trucks have voluntarily enrolled in PrePass. Twenty-six states have deployed the service: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
