As Toll Roads Go Cashless, Fleets And Drivers Face New Costs

More and more toll operators across the country are limiting cashless payments during the coronavirus pandemic.

For truck owner-operators and fleet drivers who still pay cash at tolls, it could be an added expense during an already hectic time on the road, experts said.

“We’re seeing an increase in tolling authorities proactively suspending cash payments and shifting to all-electronic and toll-by-plate transactions, which impacts nearly all of our more than 7,700 customers with hundreds of thousands of vehicles,” John Andrews, president and CEO of Bestpass, told FreightWaves.
