Over One Billion Transactions on NY Thruway Tolling System: Kapsch TrafficCom Celebrates

  • Milestone reached after system came online in November 2020
  • Achievement marks more than 17.4 billion total miles travelled

Kapsch TrafficCom, a global provider of intelligent transportation systems, proudly celebrates the remarkable milestone announced by the New York State Thruway Authority: the successful processing of over one billion transactions since the inception of the systemwide cashless tolling in November 2020.

This significant achievement marks more than 17.4 billion total miles traveled, translating to over $2.1 billion in toll revenues. Powering this massive effort is the state-of-the-art all-electronic roadside collection system, which is equipped with more than 2,000 gantry-mounted cameras designed, installed, and maintained by Kapsch TrafficCom.

JB Kendrick, President at Kapsch TrafficCom North America, said:

The dedication and precision with which this system operates are a testament to the innovation and expertise of Kapsch TrafficCom.

Collaborating closely with the New York Thruway Authority, we have bolstered efficiency for all road users. This milestone underlines the importance and success of our efforts in providing robust and advanced tolling solutions.

All-electronic tolling (AET) systems, like the one Kapsch TrafficCom has implemented, present numerous advantages over traditional tolling methods. They provide faster and more efficient movement for motorists, reducing stop-and-go traffic and congestion at tolling points. This translates to fewer vehicle emissions, contributing to a cleaner environment. Moreover, the elimination of physical toll booths enhances road safety, reducing collision risks associated with queuing at toll barriers. The continued adoption of such systems is a step forward in creating smarter and more sustainable roadways for all.
