Kapsch to supply 6C toll tags for E-470 Highway in Colorado


Kapsch TrafficCom has secured a contract from the E-470 Public Highway Authority (E-470) to supply 6C toll tags for ExpressToll account holders in Colorado, US. 

The new tags can be used with the existing all-electronic toll (AET) collection system deployed on the 47-mile road stretch of E-470, as well as with the other toll facilities located across the state. 

Currently, drivers on E-470 are tolled with either hard-case, sticker tag, or switchable transponders, in addition to licence plate billing systems.

Serving as the 18000 ISO 6C tag vendor, Kapsch will provide nearly 2.6 million tags through 2021. The agreement also includes windshield and headlamp sticker tags.

"Kapsch will provide nearly 2.6 million tags through 2021."

E-470 Public Highway Authority deputy executive director and director of operations Dave Kristick said: "With this five-year agreement, E-470 will be able to strategically support our ExpressToll customer requirements throughout Colorado and be assured that we can rely on the high-quality RFID products that Kapsch provides, and to which our customers and business partners are accustomed.

"E-470 is excited for this long-term arrangement, and is confident that this new relationship will facilitate a streamlined approach to inventory management and quality control."

Since 2011, the E-470 Public Highway Authority has been using the 6C technology.

Kapsch TrafficCom North America president and CEO Chris Murray said: "Customers across North America continue to see the value in the 6C protocol as a viable means of low-cost, high-performance electronic transactions.

"We look forward to serving E-470’s needs for interoperable and all-electronic tolling products."
