Enhances toll, violation management, and clean air zone compliance solutions for rental, fleets, and issuing authorities
MESA, Ariz., July 18, 2022 -- Verra Mobility (NASDAQ: VRRM), a leading provider of smart mobility technology solutions, announced today it is continuing to expand its European operations with new contract wins, partnerships and strategic memberships to further solve complex challenges for rental, fleet and issuing authorities operating within Europe’s evolving transportation infrastructure.
As European tollways migrate to cashless collection and municipalities expand air quality initiatives, fleets and agencies are turning to Verra Mobility’s solutions to address toll interoperability, payments and vehicle violation compliance requirements.
Recent European customer agreements, partnerships and memberships include:
Road User Charges Violation Management Contract
Verra Mobility was awarded a contract by the UK Department for Transport’s National Highways to recover unpaid road user charges and applicable penalties for the free-flow Dartford-Thurrock River Crossing, where the liable person resides outside the United Kingdom. Verra Mobility’s proven software technology and violation management services have become increasingly popular in regions with significant cross-border travel to ensure fees are recovered from drivers of foreign-registered vehicles who utilize this vital road network in the UK.
Clean Air Zone Violation Management Partnership
Verra Mobility entered a partnership with the Joint Air Quality Unit (JAQU), a joint initiative of the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) and the Department for Transport (DfT). In this partnership Verra Mobility will supply technical information for non-UK registered vehicles, enabling Clean Air Zone CAZ authorities to issue penalties for non-compliant vehicles entering from outside the UK.
Association of Electronic Toll and Interoperable Services (AETIS)
Verra Mobility was approved as a member of AETIS, a non-profit representing 18 EETS (European Electronic Toll Service) providers across the European Union. AETIS convenes often to align on regulatory positions and advocate for the industry. Membership in AETIS supports Verra Mobility in its goal to contribute to a responsible and efficient framework for all electronic tolling in Europe.
“These partner agreements are a critical next step as we expand our European footprint in tolling services and violation management,” said Tsjerk-Friso Roelfzema, general manager Europe, Verra Mobility. “Verra Mobility makes road travel in Europe more seamless and connected by providing toll solutions to our global rental car partners. We are also excited to further enhance our violation management solutions for clean air zone compliance and recovering unpaid road user charges.”
The company’s proprietary software technology is helping customers adapt and shift to cashless and automated tolling while solving complex payments and compliance challenges of automated tolling, new road usage charging and congestion programs and other vehicle-based costs.
