American Traffic Solutions Fleet Services "PlatePass" Helping to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Oct 1, 2013

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - October 01, 2013) - PlatePass®, the electronic toll payment system that enables renters and fleet drivers to use high-speed, electronic toll collection (ETC) lanes does more than just make driving more convenient; turns out, the service also is good for the environment. Designed to help rental car customers and fleet drivers use high-speed, cashless toll lanes without incurring costly violations, PlatePass also can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by enabling drivers to bypass slower stop-and-go traffic on non-toll roads as well as backups at cash toll lanes, eliminating extended idling. A recent study by the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association compared the emissions of air pollutants on an all-electronic, cashless toll road to those on a parallel non-toll roadway. The findings showed using the ETC road reduced overall fuel consumption and vehicle emissions, with reductions in dangerous pollutants ranging from 28 percent to 56 percent. The study also found less idling not only provided cleaner air, but also saved drivers millions of dollars annually by not burning through fuel while waiting in traffic. Another analysis of ETC roads and greenhouse gases showed driving through a cashless tolling station can lower CO2 emissions by more than 60 percent compared to driving through cash-only tolling stations. In the study, performed by the Center for Transportation Training and Research at Texas Southern University, a vehicle emitted an average of 160 grams of CO2 while driving through a cashless tolling station versus 480 grams while using a cash lane. To date, PlatePass has paid nearly 50 million tolls for fleet and rental car drivers on toll roads throughout the country, translating in a reduction of roughly 16 billion grams of CO2 emitted into the air or the equivalent of approximately 1.8 million gallons of gasoline. "The convenience of PlatePass and its ability to reduce stop-and-go traffic results in both environmental and quality-of-life benefits," said Adam Draizin, president of ATS Fleet Services. "PlatePass not only is beneficial for rental and fleet drivers but also has indirect environmental benefits. "  PlatePass -- just another way ATS is making life safer, easier and greener on the road ahead.
