Hundreds of PrePass users have enrolled in the NorPass and Green Light weigh station bypass programs in the 90 days since Help Inc. partnered with the Washington State Department of Transportation to allow interoperability between the systems.
Representing over 100,000 commercial vehicles, PrePass users who have enrolled are now able to bypass weigh stations at 44 additional locations in seven states: Alaska, Connecticut, Idaho, New York, Oregon, South Dakota, and Washington. NorPass is operated by Wash DOT on behalf of the other NorPass states, and Oregon Green Light is run by the Oregon DOT Motor Carrier Transportation Division.
Fleets that enroll are able to use just one transponder in their trucks –a NorPass/Oregon Green Light Transponder purchased from Wash. DOT that can be enrolled in PrePass, or a PrePass transponder that can be enrolled in NorPass/Oregon Green Light.
“The enthusiastic participation by our customers to take advantage of HELP’s partnerships with NorPass and Oregon Green Light demonstrates the exceptional value of weigh station bypassing,” said Karen Rasmussen, chief executive officer of HELP Inc. “Safe fleets and drivers appreciate the time and fuel savings of PrePass in additional jurisdictions, and the opportunities for interoperability of their transponders.”
