E-ZPass Interagency Group Announces an Industry Days Forum

The members of the E-ZPass Interagency Group (IAG) are developing a long-term comprehensive technology and services/solutions RFP to address the future needs of its members. IAG members are particularly interested in learning new means of increasing electronic tolling usage, ways to integrate multiple forms of payment, tools that enhance the customer experience, methods to operational efficiencies, solutions that leverage new on-board vehicle communications, and the potential for integration with mobility-as-a-service offerings.

To support these objectives, the IAG is hosting an “Industry Days Forum” to gather information that will be used to formulate strategy and requirements for upcoming procurement initiatives. It is hoped that forum presentations will include, but not be limited to:

  • National Interoperable (NIOP) compliant Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) technologies,
  • Alternative payment methods and technologies that complement and integrate with current IAG roadway and back office systems,
  • Image capture and processing technologies,
  • Tag distribution services,
  • Alternative on-board vehicle communications options, and
  • Mobile payment and replenishment systems.

The IAG invites technology and service/solution providers to participate in the “Industry Days Forum,” to be held at The Port Authority of NY & NJ’s offices at 2 Montgomery Street, Jersey City, NJ 07302, on March 5, 2019, at 9:30 AM.

The open session will run from 9:30 AM until 11:00 AM, and will allow the IAG to announce their upcoming ETC equipment/services procurement, and answer questions from attendees. Following the open session, there will be a limited number of individual 90-minute sessions available to vendors on a pre-registration basis on March 5 and March 6, and potentially March 7 as needed.

The forum is intended to provide technology and service/solution providers with an opportunity to spotlight their products, services/solutions, and company insights for future trends in toll collection, road-user charging and enforcement processes and how they could be incorporated into the E-ZPass system and business processes. Presenters may discuss in depth their organization’s vision of the future, how that vision compliments the IAG’s needs, and the products and services/solutions they propose.
