The Georgia I-85 toll express lanes (GA85XL) now in their eighth week of operation continue to attract more patronage, but tolls while growing, are still low per mile. We've worked on seven full weeks of data. Average weekday traffic in the variably priced lanes is now 11,210 vs 4,170 in the first week.
Intermec Inc, a former owner of Amtech, the toll tag segment of TransCore, recently demanded that the Georgia state toll authority (GaSRTA) buy Intermec readers or insist that their vendor buy license rights they claim to hold to multiprotocol readers.
Georgia State Road and Toll Authority (SRTA or 'Certur') formally announced today that they will buy multiprotocol reader equipment and service from both Federal Signal and TransCore. The Federal Signal (previously Sirit) equipment will be used mainly for tolling on the I-85 Express or HOT lanes due to begin by late summer. That contract is finalized.
