Kapsch Receives Notice to Proceed with All Electronic Tolling System for New York State Thruway

Kapsch TrafficCom has received notice to proceed from the New York State Thruway Authority (Thruway) to develop, install and provide technical support for an All Electronic Tolling (AET) system. This new system eliminates the need for Thruway patrons to stop or slow down at tolling points. By enabling toll transactions to be completed at highway speeds, the All Electronic Tolling system facilitates free-flowing traffic across multiple lanes to minimize congestion; the resulting reduction in vehicle emissions will have a direct, beneficial environmental impact. The project will be managed from the Kapsch TraffficCom office in Kingston, New York. Total value of this project to Kapsch TrafficCom North America is USD 18.6 million.

Kapsch TrafficCom is a provider of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) in the application fields of road user charging, urban access and parking, road safety enforcement, commercial vehicle operations, electronic vehicle registration, traffic management and V2X cooperative systems. As part of the Kapsch Group, a family-owned Austrian technology group founded in 1892, Kapsch TrafficCom, headquartered in Vienna, Austria, has subsidiaries and representative offices in 33 countries and has been listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange (KTCG) since 2007.
