ALBANY, N.Y. – Bestpass today announced that it has integrated its toll management and payment platform with the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority.
“By directly connecting our nationwide toll management and payment processing platform with the Thousand Islands Bridge’s back-office system, we can provide significant benefits not only to the tolling authority, but also to the thousands of commercial fleets who rely on the Bestpass service,” said John Andrews, president and CEO of Bestpass.
The Thousand Islands Bridge Authority has upgraded its toll scanning and collection technology for the bridge, which crosses the Saint Lawrence River and connects Wellesley Island, N.Y., with Hill Island, Ontario. Bestpass is now able to directly process transactions and submit payments with the authority.
“With more than two million vehicles crossing the Thousand Islands Bridge each year, any step that we can take to keep traffic flowing more smoothly and ultimately provide a better experience for users is a tremendous benefit,” said Robert Horr, executive director, Thousand Islands Bridge Authority. “Our relationship with Bestpass will also help us process commercial toll transactions much more efficiently.”
