Information for Newcomers to TollRoadsNews

Welcome to this brief introduction to, TRN, for short.

What does TRN do?

TRN is an online news and information resource for people who need to know what’s happening in the toll industry. We report on infrastructure construction and operations; toll collection systems and technologies; transportation financing; procurements, job openings and personnel changes; toll legislation, policy and litigation; and related topics such as road pricing and intelligent transportation systems.

What’s available from TRN?

  • Daily News Briefs: a round-up of domestic and foreign tolling news, published year-round on weekday mornings;
  • TollroadsToday: a weekday morning email news alert that contains news headlines and announcements of interest to the toll industry;
  • TRN Mailbag: a curated collection of industry information, including news releases, agency and company announcements, and other information resources;
  • RFPs: advertisements announcing public agency and company contract solicitations of all kinds;
  • Jobs: advertisements of job openings posted by private and public sector employers; and
  • Archives: TRN’s incomparable repository of toll industry news and information dating back to the mid-1990s.

Is there a charge for using TRN?

Not today, but a change is coming. For a short time, anyone can use TRN at no charge. However, TRN is undergoing a transition to providing a mix of paid and free content. Soon, only users who pay an annual subscription fee will receive Daily News Briefs and TollroadsToday. Access to TRN’s archive will also be restricted to subscribers.

Individual subscriptions will cost $240 per year ($160 for public agency employees) and group rates will be available for entities with multiple employee subscribers.

After the transition, TRN users who choose not to subscribe will still have free access to an abbreviated news headline feature, Mailbag and advertisements (including RFP and Job posts).

When did TRN start?

TRN has published continuously (in different formats and under different ownership) since 1996. Reporting and editing is done by professional online journalists who are knowledgeable about tolling. Many industry decision makers and influencers consider TRN a must-read.
