Oregon DOT issues open system tolling Request for Proposal

The 2017 Oregon Legislature directed the Oregon DOT to relieve congestion and generate revenue through implementation of value pricing (“tolling”) on Interstate 5 and 205 in the Portland Metro area.
“Oregon is entering the tolling conversation at a time when people and infrastructure are becoming increasingly connected to vehicles,” says Oregon DOT Chief Innovation Officer Eryca Dinsdale.
Oregon DOT is interested in researching an open toll system that would allow several connected car companies to bundle tolling with other services — like by the mile insurance, road assistance, parking, engine diagnostics and more.
