SH 130 Concession Company – which privately operates and maintains a 41-mile public toll road along US State Highway 130 in Texas – has awarded a multi-year contract to A-to-Be to replace the current toll collection system with its LinkBeyond solution.
LinkBeyond includes an open road tolling subsystem for toll zones, toll management subsystem project host, maintenance online management subsystem, and digital video audit subsystem.
The project will be implemented on sections five and six of SH 130, a 41-mile toll road that extends from just north of Mustang Ridge at SH 45SE to I-10 in Seguin, and connects to the northern segments of SH 130 that begin in Georgetown, forming a 91-mile alternative to the congested I-35 through Central Texas.
“We are excited to bring drivers using SH 130 between Seguin and Mustang Ridge a new, state-of-the-art toll collection system,” said Doug Wilson, CEO at SH 130 Concession Company. “A-to-Be’s system will be highly accurate and is part of our on-going efforts to make SH 130 the most reliable roadway it can be.
The data the system provides will bring us insights and business analytics to help drivers on SH 130 get to their destinations safely and swiftly.”
According to A-to-Be, a planned phased transition to the new system has been designed to have minimal impact on SH 130 users. An 18-month implementation phase that began in November 2021 will be followed by a five-year maintenance phase.
“We are proud to expand A-to-Be’s presence in Texas and the USA through this partnership with SH 130,” said Marta Sousa Uva, CEO at A-to-Be. “A-to-Be’s LinkBeyond system positions SH 130 to grow and adapt as Texans’ needs change, and we look forward to helping them continue to serve their community.”
