Yesterday we were asked to publish an official Utah Department of Transportation retraction of comments in a report (2011-07-26) saying that the TransCore Encompass 6 readers were reading 6C tags poorly compared to the read performance of Sirit IDentity 5100 readers.
Utah DOT is buying ISO 18000 6C sticker tags from Neology for $1.59 apiece, the lowest price we know of that a transponder has been sold in the US. A Utah official told us that FSTech/Sirit bid just a nickel more or $1.64. TransCore bid $3.50.
Electronic Transaction Consultants (ETC Corp or ETCC) have been selected to do payment processing and a major part of customer service for the Utah DOT tolling on the I-15 Express Lanes through Salt Lake City.
