New mobile tolling app launches for Virginia drivers

News Road User Charging

Road operator Transurban has launched a new mobile tolling app in the USA.

GoToll has been designed to provide drivers with a transparent and real-time way to pay for tolls with a smartphone.

Drivers pay as they go and can keep track of toll road trips via their smartphones. There is no pre-loading money into an account and no commitment. Instead drivers take to the road and then wait for a notification with details following their trip.

The app currently works on 12 toll roads in Virginia.

Transurban said it chose to launch the app in the Greater Washington Area – the second most congested region in the USA – following research that showed that 80% of drivers are interested in having a mobile app to pay for tolls and 65% are more likely to increase toll road use if they could pay using a mobile app.

The company added that it plans to expand the GoToll solution to other cities and states across the USA.
