Wabash Toll Bridge Toll Collection Services RFP - Indiana DOT

March 6, 2012

The Wabash Toll Bridge was built in 1956 and spans the Wabash River between Posey County Indiana and White County Illinois. Approximately 1.2 million vehicles cross the bridge each year. Tolls range from $.50 to $1.70. The deck, superstructure, and substructure are all rated as a 7 on the National Bridge Inspection Standards (NBIS) scale. In January 2011 the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) converted from a manual toll collection system to an electronic toll collection system designed by TRMI Systems Integration.

The selected firm will be responsible for all toll collection related to the Wabash Toll Bridge that conforms to all applicable laws and regulations and existing INDOT policies and procedures. Firms should be prepared to manage customer accounts and remit tolls to INDOT, collect tolls from pay by plate/pay by mail customers, process payments made by credit card and check, manage and process toll violations, notify the Posy County Prosecutor of toll violations, notify the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) of toll violations, maintain the electronic toll system including maintaining transponder inventory and establish a customer service center. The selected firm will have access to the INDOT property and building adjacent to the Wabash Toll Bridge where they may establish an office to manage toll collection operations, distribute toll transponders and collect tolls from individuals that choose to pay manually.

INDOT is contracting for professional services related to toll collection. This will be a four (4) year contract with the option to renew one time for time and money. The consultant shall include a cost proposal for this contract within the letter of interest document. Cost will be a consideration in the selection scoring process.
