Transurban Expands GoToll Mobile Tolling App To Three New States: North Carolina, Georgia And Florida
Transurban, global toll road operator and developer, announced today the expansion of its mobile tolling app GoToll from Virginia to North Carolina, Florida and Georgia through a partnership with the North Carolina Turnpike Authority (NCTA).
GoToll, launched by Transurban in 2020, is an app that puts choice and convenience in drivers’ hands and allows them to pay tolls from the convenience of their smartphone. With GoToll, drivers pay as they go and can easily keep track of toll road trips with just their phone – easy and quick set-up, no pre-loading money into an account and no commitment.
In addition to 12 roads and almost 15,000 customers in Virginia, GoToll is now available on 47 Quick Pass roads across the three states. With the potential to reach 30 million licensed drivers in these new states, this is a significant expansion for GoToll and Transurban.
“Many know us for our work on the 495, 95 and 395 Express Lanes, where Transurban has partnered with Virginia to help more than 7 million customers avoid crippling congestion and reach their destination more reliably,” said Emeka Moneme, vice president of Corporate Strategy and Innovation, Transurban North America. “Our commitment to improving regional transportation networks also includes a strong emphasis on technology and new tools to help drivers plan and simplify their toll road travel. We continuously look at how to strengthen our customer resources, including mobile app products.”
Moneme added, “GoToll’s rapid expansion is a testament to the company’s investment in digital-first mobility solutions and public-private partnerships that drive innovations in our industry forward.”
Promoted by government officials as a contactless and cashless option to pay tolls, the app also ensures the safety of drivers and toll booth attendants amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. GoToll offers drivers without an E-ZPass or Quick Pass transponder a convenient and unique option for local and interstate travel. The app allows drivers to create a profile and quickly get on the road without needing to wait to receive a physical transponder or pre-pay.
“By focusing on our phones – the one item we take wherever we go – GoToll has the potential to transform perceptions of tolling,” said Elisa Bell, director of mobile products, Transurban North America. “As mobile devices occupy greater importance in our day-to-day lives, GoToll is a model for how the use of tolling can be efficient, fast, and user-centered.”
