TransCore awarded US$35 million BATA bridge toll system contract

TransCore has been awarded a US$35 million contract by the Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) to design, develop, test, install and maintain a new advanced toll collection and accounting system (ATCAS II) for seven San Francisco Bay area bridges; the contract includes a six year maintenance option. Design is underway and is due for completion by 2012. The seven toll bridges in the San Francisco Bay area are owned and operated by the state, with tolls administered by BATA. The bridges provide essential transportation arteries for the traveling public, accommodating on average a total of more than 348,000 vehicles a day and support 73 toll lanes.

The current toll collection system is now 13 years old and nearing the end of its product life and cannot accommodate new functionality, such as configurable pricing or integration with Express Lane systems. The new ATCAS II project will replace the current toll collection system with a modern, configurable and expandable system. The project includes the replacement of in-lane and toll booth equipment, development and installation of hardware and software systems for a new toll collection system, and ongoing maintenance for the system. The new RFID equipment will include TransCore’s multiprotocol Encompass 6 reader in all of the lanes.

The evaluation panel, which included BATA operations and finance staff with support from Caltrans and its technical advisors, considered proposals submitted by five bidders, before unanimously awarding the contract to TransCore.
