Scottsdale, AZ – More than 800,000 tolls will be processed on behalf of rental car customers this July 4th weekend through PlatePass, ATS Fleet Services’ (ATS) automated toll payment solution.
AAA projects nearly 35 million vacationers will travel by car over this five-day holiday weekend, representing a 2 percent increase over 2013 and the highest volume since the pre-recession holiday in 2007. ATS estimates that PlatePass use will increase this holiday weekend by 6 percent over the 740,000+ tolls paid by the service during this same travel period in 2013.
PlatePass enables renters to use high-speed electronic toll collection lanes instead of waiting in long lines at cash toll lanes. The service also covers all-electronic tollways where cash is no longer accepted. By offering speed and convenience to the rental car driver, PlatePass continues to experience extraordinary growth, a trend ATS anticipates will continue throughout 2014.
“Independence Day is among the top driving holidays each year,” said Adam Draizin, president of ATS Fleet Services. “PlatePass allows drivers to use cashless toll lanes, making travel convenient and helping them reach their destinations more quickly.”
The service is available through Hertz Rent A Car, Dollar Rent A Car, Thrifty Car Rental, Firefly Car Rental, Advantage Rent A Car and Toyota Rent a Car, and provides toll coverage to customers in 17 states and Puerto Rico.
