Wilmington, DE - The E-ZPass Group, a coalition of 24 toll agencies in 14 states that operates  the largest interoperable toll collection system in the world , announced today that it has selected a vendor to provide transponders, readers, ancillary equipment and services to support the continued operations of the E-ZPass electronic toll collection system in a new agreement.   Following a comprehensive competitive procurement process, Kapsch TrafficCom IVHS, Inc. has been selected as the vendor for the new ten-year technology and services contracts to be awarded by each of the E-ZPass Group member agencies, subject to individual agency approval processes.   

"E-ZPass is the world leader in toll interoperability.  Our customers have come to expect the enhanced traveling experience our interoperable system provides.  They will be well-served by the new contract, as the more than 21 million transponders in use throughout the 14-state E-ZPass region will remain fully compatible with the new equipment procured in the future," said PJ Wilkins, Executive Director of the E-ZPass Group.
