Status of Toll Interoperability

Hearing Date: September 30, 2015 2:00 pm 2154 Rayburn House Office Building

PURPOSE:

  • To determine the status of national tolling interoperability.
  • To identify what remains to be done in order to develop, implement, and operate a national tolling system – as required by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21).

BACKGROUND:

  • Enacted in 2012, MAP-21 made significant changes to the tolling provisions that reinforce the encouragement of high-occupancy toll lanes and congestion pricing.
  • One of these provisions requires national electronic toll collection (ETC) interoperability by October 2016.
  • The International Bridge, Tunnel, and Turnpike Association has examined ETC interoperability, with an early focus on selection of a single National Toll Protocol for transponders and reader equipment.
