What is PrePass?
PrePass is an automatic vehicle identification (AVI) system that allows participating transponder equipped commercial vehicles to bypass designated weigh stations, port-of-entry facilities and agricultural interdiction facilities. Cleared vehicles may proceed at highway speed, eliminating the need to stop. That means greater efficiency for shippers and improved safety for all highway users.
PrePass saves customers time, fuel and money
PrePass customers save approximately 5 minutes and one-half gallon of fuel for each weigh station bypass. Most carriers agree that it costs $1 a minute ($60 per hour) to operate a truck. That means the time and fuel saved with each bypass saves customers at least $5 in operating expenses.
